It sounds like you have a routine. Just make sure it is a routine that is always the same. Like a bath (at night), diaper change, swaddling, lights out, drapes pulled, soft music on or singing, cuddling/rocking/swaying. When the baby gets drowsy lay him down. If done in the same manner, all the time, the baby picks up on the cues and knows it's time for sleeping. We always had a consistent routine and the lady I do childcare for has also asked me to follow a set routine with her baby. If the baby cries at all it isn't for long. And I don't mean screaming his lungs out, but minor fussing. This is what worked for us. Our kids were good sleepers and happy babies. I wish you the best.
