the reason i say important, is because my mil will be baby sitting ds in 1 month from now for 3 nights 4 days, and at the moment, i would hate to impose her with a hard to manage baby during nap times. ds will sleep, but will not fall asleep without being in our arms. then i get a failed attemp time after time during his nap to put him in his cot, he will always wake up literally straight away. i need to fix this problem. i cannot cio, as he is 6 1/2 months, and will not cry after he wakes, he will just wake up completely and start rolling and playing in his cot. so if i leave him there awake, he will play then later on get really cranky from lack of sleep. today, i have succeded in laying down with him on his play rug, and eventually getting him to sleep on my arm (takes about half an hour), then i will leave him there and he will sleep for a good 20 minutes...although usually if he sleeps in my arms, he will sleep for an hour or 2. so in turn, i desperatly need advice on a way to put him down asleep in his cot without him waking, i have tryed to put a cuddly teddy in replace of my body, but by then its too late he is already awake. your help is much appreciated....TRUST ME!

I did cio with my ds around 6 monts fo his naps that was the only way I could do it. He was the same way wouldwake up and cry after falling asleep in our arms. It took 3 days to get him napping in his crib. That unfortunatly is my only advise. Oh btw my ds now at 14.5 months will sometimes play in his crib for 20-30 mintutes tehn cry for one big wail and off to sleep he goes, then sometimes you lay him down and hes out right away. Good luck!!

thx lisa. i know he is tired at the moment so i have him in his cot as he wont fall asleep in my arms. he is sooking in there while playing, so ill just leave him for a few then give him his dummy/paci and see how he goes. 3 days is pretty good....they are so mobile its hard to keep him on his back and his dummy in his mouth!
