We went by DD's cues which is what we were advised at sleep school. So if she seemed to be responding to the shushing, patting, whatever we would continue until she was calm, but not asleep. If it seemed to be getting her more worked up, which sometimes it did, we would leave her to it and either she would stop crying and go to sleep by herself, or we would go back in a few minutes (I never timed it, just listened to cries) and try again. Often on the second or third time she would be ready to accept our help to calm down.

Just thought I'd add this link to an article I found recently about a study showing that cc didn't appear to have any long term effects. I know I've felt bad and judged by doing it so it made me feel better knowing that whilst it's not a technique for everyone I don't believe I've caused my child longterm damage.
