Swaddling worked wonders for us to extend nap time. She would sleep well at night between us but she needed a tight swaddle at that age to sleep longer than 30 minutes at a time.

Have you tried swaddling? That was our answer to get DD to nap out of arms. I think we accomplished it around 4 months. Up until then she always slept in someone's arms for naps.

We use a paci. DD is almost 10 months old and we limit its use now to naps and bedtime. She hasn't needed it for car rides for months although I keep one in the diaper bag just in case.
