I can say that anything over 45 minutes is abusive, personally I would say 5 min but we all have a skewed sense of what is right. As far as the CIO advocates they say it is 45 minutes and NEVER anything over that amount. This is also while being checked upon every 5 to 10 minutes. Leaving a child to cry without comfort is inherently wrong. Have you read No Cry Sleep Solution? It may offer a better alternative to both mother and child.
