It took a good solid week but got better each night. It sounds like our son was a lot worse than your daughter though since he was waking frequently all night. The first couple of nights, he’d wake every hour or two and cry for up to 30-60 mins. Our neighbors weren’t pleased, and it was brutal on us as well. Our dr firmly encouraged it though. I cried a bit, had some wine before bed, and we’d watch him on a monitor the entire time. I still nurse him and sing to him before bed, but he knows which song is last and curls up with his pillow doll when I start it. Per other’s advice, I always stick to the same bedtime routine and make sure he’s awake when he goes to bed. The routine is working so well that I think soon I’ll be able to skip the nursing too. Good luck!
