the first time i used it dd was about 4mths, and it took about 3 nights to get her to sleep from 6pm-4:30am...
when i dropped her 4:30am breastfeed it took about the same to get her to sleep till 5:30am..... unfortunatley that is now her wake up time (everyday)....
from memory the first night dd took about 40mins to settle herself, and then 20mins and then 5mins... after the first night there was a big improvement and by the 3rd night it was a whinge and then sleep..
i have found that if anything out of the normal happens and she wakes and i go in to settle her (like going away, sickness or visitors or teething dramas, stupid kids setting fireworks in our street!!!) it takes about 2 nights to get back to sleeping through again.... but it was definately worth it, she is a very good sleeper... touch wood!!!
