If the problem you're having is that she falls asleep at the breast and then wakes up (crying of course) as soon as you try to put her down in her crib, I've been there! I found that my son stayed asleep when I moved him from my breast to my shoulder (position to burp him), but would wake as soon as I tried to lay him down on his back. What helped was putting my hand on his chest, with some pressure, so that he didn't feel the change from shoulder to laying on his back (it would feel to him like he was still laying on my shoulder, if that makes sense). Then, SLOWLY, less and less pressing on his chest until I was able to take my hand off. If he started to wake, pressure back on, and he'd fall asleep again, and I'd wait a minute and then try slowly taking my hand off.
