and pick her up? there's new science to considering getting the great baby to sleep debate. >> reporter: when it comes to getting their bundles to bed, many americans struggle with the age old question, to cry or not to cry? researchers in australia studied infants ages six months through 16 months. the babies whose parents allowed them to cry it out fell asleep on average 13 minutes sooner and woke up less often during the night than parents who didn't let babies cry it out. stress tests showed letting them cry had no long-term effects. >> what we know is that when babies are given opportunities to self soothe, they learn how to stay asleep, not be awake as much. so the great news is, babies aren't stressed. moms are less stressed. babies sleep a little bit better. >> reporter: the american academy of pediatrics also supports crying it out. they say, letting a baby cry for five to ten minutes after progressively longer intervals often can help a
8:11 am
few nights. >> baby! >> reporter: it worked for new mom genevieve allen. >> she was waking up every two hours. >> reporter: she and her husband john say it wasn't easy with their little bundle of crying joy, beatrice. >> we finally did cry it out at eight months, and it took us over the finish line. it really solved our problems. beatrice sleeps now, which is amazing. >> reporter: if you can't stomach the crying, researchers found parents who delayed bedtime each night were about as effective. babies fell asleep almost as fast, but the trade off, they would wake up more often than if you let them cry it out. whichever sleep strategy you use, pediatricians acknowledge letting babies cry is tough. we're hard wired to pick up a crying baby. >> parents feel it's never the right thing, and that's okay, too. either way we do this, we can create great bonds with our babies and great sleepers. we do know that letting babies learn to self soothe

likely have less awakenings earlier in their life. experts say whatever you choose, the most important thing is to be consistent. routine is far more important than the method. if you're concerned about your baby's sleep challenges, talk with your doctor. by the way, we asked parents to weigh in on the website. 58% said the cry it out method worked for them. 14% said they tried it and it didn't work. 28% -- i think i'm in that category -- tried it and couldn't go through with it. >> what are you doing? >> a version of that. kind of. >> that's the problem right there. >> the spoil method? >> capitulate. no, no. we have let her cry it out a little bit, and it works. she's a great sleeper and sleeps through the night. sometimes she cries and we go in there and get her. it's hard. >> good luck. >> all good. now to stories that are trending today. how many times have we heard this expression? breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
8:13 am
on the website of the "new york times" this morning. headlines, sorry, there's nothing magical about breakfast. a pediatric professor says the studies finding the importance of breakfast are something of a mess. he argues there are flaws in the research that suggests skipping breakfast would make you obese. by the way, many of the pro-breakfast studies are funded by -- wait for it -- breakfast food companies. >> whoops. >> his conclusion is, breakfast has no mystical powers. >> it's still a good meal. i feel better if i have a good breakfast. >> me, too. >> especially on the weekends. it's my splurge breakfast. >> warms you up. >> some people feel they don't need it. this researcher says, basically, if you don't like to eat breakfast, you're fine. >> no more breakfast shaming. >> true. al, if i've told you once, i've told you a thousand times, what don't you do on a golf course? >> don't stand in front of a golfer. >> even if video taping said

golfer, do not do it. >> never. >> a guy taking a video of a golfer. this is a pro, takes a swing and guy has it covered. the camera there. >> oh! >> right in the chest. >> could have gone lower. >> could have gone lower, no question. anyway, he seemed to not be worse for the wear and tear. good thing is he will get to see that over and over again. now to the wife that waited years to have a little fun at her husband's expense. during the marriage, the husband often accused the wife of being bad at parking. last week, he was the one who accidentally steered their car into a sink hole in washington state. there's only one thing to do when that happens. post the photo on facebook. along with a snarky caption. and he complains about my parking. on facebook, this message has been shared thousands of

friends as we deal with the anxiety that often comes with aging? i brought one of my closest friends along on an experiment that definitely put our friendship to the test. >> reporter: walking into a lab at the university of virginia, my friend louise and i are a little nervous. today, we are research subjects for neuroscientist james. >> tell us what we're in for. >> what we're going to do is we're going to put louise into the scanner to monitor the movement of blood through her brain. we're interested in how people regulate their anxiety. how people deal with their anxiety. to do that, of course, we have to create anxiety. >> reporter: the team straps electrodes on to louise's ankles. >> you'll see two symbols. one is a blue circle and one is a red x. when you see an x, there is a 20% chance you'll receive an electric shock on your ankle. we're
8:20 am
we do that because we're trying to create the kind of anxiety we experience in actual life. we're never really sure whether something is going to happen or not. >> reporter: her anticipatory anxiety will be measured while she experiences the shock alone, holding my hand and holding the hand of a stranger. >> i think of joan when anything comes up. >> reporter: my daughter lindsey met her son evan 15 years ago, and now we share a granddaughter. it's a close bond, one that researchers say could add years to our lives. >> mid-life friendships are the key to thriving. it's a secret that no one talks about. >> reporter: for her new book "life reimagined," the science, art and opportunity of midlife, barbara bradley haggerty interviewed hundreds of experts. >> a large network of friends, people live longer, less likely to have a heart attack, more likely to keepem
8:21 am
>> reporter: lack of social connections can cause as much harm as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. the health risks outweigh obesity. middle-aged americans are only becoming more isolated. in 2013, 45 to 64-year-olds were 29% more likely to live alone than they were ten years earlier. >> with each year, social isolation takes on increased urgency, as really a public health issue. >> so what actually happens in the experiment when you have somebody that's meaningful to the person hold their hand? >> what actually happens is you see regions of the brain that are associated with everything from how we regulate our own emotions to how we sense the state of our body. it's quieted down as a result of the touch. >> you did great. >> did you notice a difference, being alone versus being with somebody? >> oh,
8:22 am
well, as soon as joan walked in and she grabbed my hand, i felt that emotional attachment, like she had my back. >> did you feel i was like, i gotcha, baby. i gotcha. you felt that? >> totally. but when the stranger, whoever that was, the unknown person was in, i honestly felt like i could have been holding on to anything. it wasn't that same human touch, as when joan was in there. >> reporter: for louise's actual results, the areas in red represent regions in the brain where blood was flowing during the threat. there was lots of red when she was alone. slightly reduced with the stranger. when i was holding her hand, gone. >> we're seeing how you, joan, take on part of the regulatory job of her emotional state. >> yeah. >> but there's so much more going on than that. when you have these relationships, you literally think differently. you perceive the world
8:23 am
supportive social network. >> reporter: proof is sharing your burden with friends really does lighten your load. >> i'm glad it's over though. >> next time, let's do something a little more fun. >> the electric shock wasn't fun? >> we should note that quality relationships are just as important for men as they are for women. it's kind of like an investment that we should all make in our happiness and our health. isn't that amazing? >> i call it the joan factor. >> very cool stuff. >> we don't think about it as being so important to our health. when all the blood is going to your brain, it's not growing hair. >> why would you do that, look at me? >> right there. >> you could have looked over there, too. wow. >> hi, al. >> hello. >> this

don't think people understand that it's a life-threatening situation for a lot of people. it's so prevalent. >> reporter: a desire to end food allergies inspired kim and elise to create the organization end allergies together, to raise awareness and funds for research. >> it can be as small as a grain of sand. that's what a trace amount can be. even less than that. just a trace of that in food, inadvertently, can send someone into a life-threatening reaction. so eating is something you have to do every day. multiple times a day. and our kids are scared to eat. they have to rely on the fact that whoever prepared their food didn't make a mistake. so our mission is to get everybody involved to help find a cure for food allergies. >> reporter: they're going it with their campaign, do your 17, honoring the millions of americans who suffer from food allergies. >> three,

>> aaron. >> aaron brought up this -- how promising is this peanut patch we've been hearing about? >> the idea now is that if you expose a child to small amounts early on, you can sort of almost create an immune reaction to the allergen and, over time, you can reduce the reaction that they have to the product. unfortunately, peanuts and shellfish tend to be the allergies that last lifelong. meat, milk, dairy, eggs and soy and wheat, other common ole e allergens, kids outgrow them 80% of the time. for example, if your child is allergic to milk, it doesn't mean they only avoid milk. it's also in butter and cheese. you have to be aware of the ingredients in other products. also, they tend to be compartmentalized. if you're allergic to peanuts, doesn't mean you're allergic to wheat. >> we have more information on our
