I've seen it a million times and distraction is the best thing, and yes, sometimes the first couple of minutes are sad but then they start playing and do a 180 and forget all about you! People who work the nursery enjoy kids and want YOU to be able to leave them confidently. Take advantage of what the nursery offers - being able to participate in worship.
I do recommend training your LO to sit in worship with you. I am working on that now with my 15mo and we have good weeks and bad weeks (and I am by myself bc my husband is the pastor), but he definitely knows to be quiet. It's definitely slow progress but big picture, I want DS to learn to enjoy and participate in worship as he grows, just as much as I do for myself. Parenting in the Pew is a good book in that regard.
