How do you get your baby to sleep for naps and at night?

My son is 9 months and I've been allowing him to sleep in my arms before I lay him down for naps. If I don't let him fall asleep he cries when I put him down. He's fine at night though. I want to get him to sleep at naptime without having to rock him to sleep each time, but I can't let him cry it out.

    I put them down in their bed when they get sleepy/fussy. I practice compassionate cio for night time.

    Sometimes dd just lays down in bed and falls asleep but most of the time I still rock or nurse her to sleep.

    I either nurse to sleep or lay down and cuddle for a while.

    she has a nap and bedtime routine and has since she was very young so luckily i've never had a major problem with this. i let her "whine it out" any time it's necessary. i wait 5 minutes, i go in and rub her back/legs and blow kisses at her and then walk out. i repeat once or twice. i keep all the lights off and distractions out of the room. If this isn't something you could try, i hope you find something that helps!
