Tell me to stop worrying about his naps!  

DS is three months old today. I have been observing his schedule and trying to discern his routine and I think I have it down. I have been trying to observe his sleepy signals and get him down for a nap when he is tired; we change his diaper, eat, and then I attempt to put him down in his crib. He wakes up each time I put him down in his crib no matter if he was asleep or just sleepy when I put him down. Any tips for getting him to sleep in his crib at naptime?

I am so tired of thinking about this right now (I have posted about this here), but I know that patience and perseverance will help this situation eventually. I cannot seem to get any straight answers about whether or not he is still a little young to be worrying about his napping schedule or where he naps. He did so well with training him to sleep at night; I was hoping it would translate to his napping as well, but it has not yet.

Any suggestions on how I can get him to sleep in his crib during the day?

(BTW, his father puts him down to sleep most nights so he is accustomed to his father putting him down and I am wondering if that is part of his resistance to my putting him down during the day.)

TIA!

Oh, and about what you mentioned in the post in the parenting community (admittedly I didn't read the entire thing), you don't necessarily have to give them structure, especially if you're home with him and can respond to his needs when he needs them, rather than getting him on a set schedule of naps. Like you said you're doing here, put him down when he's tired, otherwise, you'll likely get resistance.
