I have been breastfeeding my son since birth. That has always been the way that he goes to sleep, by nursing. He sleeps in his crib by himself for most of the night. But naps are a different story. He will only sleep in my arms/lap. No matter how tired he is, if I lay him down in his crib, he wakes up immediately and cries. I've done the whole let him cry it out thing, but it doesn't work. He just stands up in his crib and cries and cries, and won't fall back asleep or lay down.
Does anyone have any suggestions? How do I get him used to going to sleep on his own? He's 13 months old now, I think it's time.

Where can I find arm floaties that aren't inflatable?
