Salma Hayek Doesn't Let Valentina Cry It Out

Salma Hayek Doesn't Let Valentina Cry It Out

Compassionate mama Salma Hayek, who made headlines when she breastfed a sick and starving baby, passed on a motherly tip this morning on the Rachel Ray Show. When asked about the best advice she was given in raising her 1-year-old daughter, Valentina Pinault, the actress passed on words of wisdom from her own mother. She said:

Everybody tells you what to do and everybody contradicts each other and it drives you mad. Put her in the bassinet or the cradle to sleep. Stick her in there, let her cry. Everybody was telling me this, but I wasn't doing it. She (my mother) said to me always put your baby to sleep because one day you are going to wish you could do that — that you could hold her in your arms and put her to sleep. You know, I put my baby to sleep every night and I love that moment even though sometimes it takes hours. But I do enjoy it very, very much.

Do you agree with Salma's attachment parenting approach rather than using the cry-it-out method?
