Hi - My 5 month old is doing great with sleeping in her crib at night (12 hrs usually). So I shouldn't complain, but I am having big issues with nap time. She usually goes down for a morning nap of about an hour or so after nursing. She usually sleeps on my lap. Any attempt at moving her means no more nap. In the afternoon, I usually put her to sleep with a long stroller walk. I used to have to carry her, but now she has transitioned to the stroller. I have tried unsuccessfully to put her down in her crib. It is dimly lit in there, there is white noise...pretty much like at night only slightly lighter. I have tried to rock her to sleep, but as soon as she hits the mattress, we begin a horrible struggle with her crying. After about a half hour to an hour, I give up and she doesn't take her nap which turns into the horrible fussies in the evening. Any advice? I really hate the cry it out method, but???Answer Question
