If Avery is having trouble falling asleep but she's obviously fine (fed, changed, etc.) we let her cry for 5 min, go in and comfort, wait for 7 min, go in and comfort, wait 10min. If she's not asleep after the 10min wait we usually pick her up and do something else for 20min before putting her back down.

The first day of doing this was really tough on all of us, but she learned REALLY quick. Withing 48hrs she'd learned how to suck on her favorite fingers to fall asleep.
