A: Nap problems are very common, so don’t feel that you are all alone. Start by having him get used to the crib and making it a fun place to be. Play games in and around his crib for a few minutes, several times a day. For example, hide a favorite toy in his crib or play peek-a-boo through the bars. At the same time, be sure to have a mini naptime routine in his room. After a few days, start putting him down for his nap but stay and pat him to sleep. Once he is used to falling asleep in the crib, start gradually moving yourself farther away from it. Stick with this, and you will be successful. It is easier to make these changes now rather than wait until he is older, since these kinds of changes will be harder and harder to make.
