I have a 4.5 month old son and I did the let him cry thing.
It works for me at bedtime.
I would let him cry and then about every five minutes I would go in at let him know that I was there for him.
As far as picking him up, I do that sometimes and walk him around in the bedroom until he falls asleep, or I let him hold my finger and then I put him in his bouncy seat and put him to sleep that way.
I think that it depends on your baby how long you will let him cry.
