I want to get him in the right habit for napping. I put him down drowsy with a pacifier yet he wakes up soon as he's on his back in the crib. I'm not comfortable with the cry-it-out method at his age.Answer Question

Make sure you are using a consistent routine of getting him to sleep. And you might have to let him fuss a little to get himslef back to sleep. We always found it worked best for us to get into a sleep time routine that was always the same. Bath, diaper change, swaddling, lights out, drapes pulled, soft music on or singing, cuddling/rocking/swaying. Not all of these but what works for you. When the baby got drowsy he was laid down. If done in the same manner, all the time, the baby picks up on the cues and knows it's time for sleeping. 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. Ours never liked the pacifier. And I would try to not use the pacifier, if you can, so that he isn't dependent on it. GL!!
