Re: how do you lay a baby down w/o them waking up?

All babies are different, some go down half asleep in their cribs, some don't.

What works for us (we cosleep) is for naps I nurse him down then lay down on the bed with him and slowly move away. His naps went from 30 mins to anywhere between 1-3 hours for his morning nap and he still does a second nap that is about 1 hour. Nighttime we go through our routine of shower/bath, teeth, diaper, jammies then I nurse him and sing to him and that usually works to get him to sleep, if not DH comes in and sings to him for a few minutes and that does the trick, then we lay him down in bed until we go to bed then I usually end up nursing him (now though this isn't needing to happen as much since DS is sleeping lots longer).
