Hello, I am a 1st time mother of a 3 month old baby boy. He is having a few sleeping issues. #1 ONLY sleeps in a rocker/bouncer after falling asleep in my arms and nursing. #2 Fights sleep at night, doesn't settle until almost 2 am and then will sleep a solid 5-6 hours and take 2 morning naps thereafter about 2hrs each. How do I transition him to the crib and get him to settle down earlier? Note he won't take a pacifier or swaddle and we have tried to instill a bedtime routine including aromatherapy and white noise to get him to sleep in the crib and also the rocker thing, I am not a fan of letting him cry it out, think he is still too young. Please advise, I want to be sure he is getting the rest he needs for development.
