Do you mean during the day or at night?
My DS is 5.5months old now and until he was about 3 months old he would never nap in his crib.
At night I stuck to a strict routine (undress, bath, massage, dress, feed then put him in crib) and he would only wake up 1-2 times a night. When he was about 2 months old he slept throught he night.
During the day he fell asleep in my arms while feeding him or the stroller when we would go for a walk.When I tried to put him in his crib he woke up within 2 minutes. What worked for me was a mini bedtime routine (change diaper, take pants and socks off, play the same song as he listens to at night). Also, once in crib, he stays in crib (when he's supposed to sleep) and only comes out to be changed or fed.
I just stick to the same routine and just place him in crib when it is time to sleep. He still only takes 30-45min naps, but in his crib and I have my hands free:)
