putting 2 year old down for nap

Well I just recently had to quit my job to be home w/ my son who is 2. I am having a hard time putting him down for a nap. He wants me to lay with him which could be about 20- 30 minutes and sometimes I fall asleep with him. This is a bad habit to get into I know but what is a good way to stop.

My son use to be the same so i put a dvd player and tv in there so he could watch tv and fall asleep. Some people may think this is a bad habbit but i also have a newborn baby and that sleep that he has is a break i really need so however i get it suits me fine.

Maybe you could slowly decrease the time that you are in there with him. Start with 15 minutes, then 10 minutes then 5 minutes and hopefully that will work. We usually read a book before naptime and then its rest time after that.
