I was having the same problem with my son. He would get sleepy and the minute I put him down his eyes would pop open and he would be awake or he would only sleep for about 15 minutes. I swear he was on a sleep strike! I was pretty much at my wits end so I started googling, when I had time, and came across the Baby Whisperer. I checked out the reviews and her methods and decided to get one of her books called "Secrets of the Baby Whisperer" by Tracy Hogg. It's difficult to find time to read anything but I highly recommend checking out the E.A.S.Y. method chapter which introduces the pick up/put down method as well. My son was taking naps by the next day after implementing this method. Yay!! Another thing I've tried that seems to help is white noise, I use an electric fan in his room as white noise which he seems to like. I hope this helps!
