In our case, we started on a Thursday (since Dad worked from home the next day). The first night, he cried for 35 minutes total after we checked on him in periodic intervals. The second night, we laid him down without crying. Third night, he cried for about a minute and went to sleep without any intervention. We were blown away!
This was about 6 weeks ago so now we know that those first few nights were not just a fluke. We went out of town for a week about a month after we sleep trained him. He did regress a little but that was because we were in a house full of people and did not want to disturb them. Shortly after we got home, he seemed to remember what to do when he was in his own crib and resumed sleeping well, getting up maybe once or twice in the night to feed and then go back to sleep without any drama. We do keep to a regular bedtime routine and feed him a bottle at night so we know he's getting a full feeding of breastmilk before going down for the night (that's mainly for our peace of mind!)
So that all being said, this book REALLY does work if your are CONSISTENT and can stick it out for at least several days. Hearing my child scream at the top of his lungs the first night was awful (he is a very loud child) but we kept ourselves occupied doing other things between checking on him and made it much more bearable. If your child is waking up 8+ times a night like ours was after being rocked for an hour, BUY THIS BOOK! Your future self will thank you. :)
