I know this is the age old question, but does anyone have an answer? I haven't put my baby in the crib in her room yet. I have a portable crib in our bedroom that I'm trying to get her to use. When she's sleeping after feedings in the day I try to put her in it for naps. She either wakes up fully and screams as soon as I lay her down, or naps for 20 minutes then screams. I have two toddlers so I really need my baby to sleep a least a couple naps a day in her crib. At night she is sleeping in bed with me. I'm just way too tired by night time to try a bedtime battle.
She won't take a pacifier and doesn't have any sleep associations, such as rocking. Anyone have a gentle, effective bedtime routine that works for young babies?

Check out the no cry sleep solution. It suses things like a consistent and early bedtime, consistent routine, and a gentle way of teaching your child to sleep.
Also - do you swaddle her? being extra snug will help with the jerking awake when you set her down.
