Advice on transitioning from swing to crib

Hi Ladies!

We are transitioning our 11 month old from napping in his swing to napping in his crib. It has been a disaster. My son is not sleeping at ALL during the day but sleeps just fine in his crib at night. I look into his eyes during the day and I feel so bad for him because I know he is exhausted but he just won't sleep. I've tried everything! The only thing that works is driving him in the car but I don't want to get that habit started. Any ideas on how to make this transition easier for all of us?? Thanks!

Honestly I transitioned my four month old from his swing to crib... and it's hard.. you have to put them in the crib and let them cry. There was one afternoon he cried for four hours. I fed him, changed him, then put him back down again. It was extremely hard for about a week, with a LOT of crying on his part, but it was worth it in the end as he sleep in his crib now, with next to no tears!
