What's your baby's naptime routine? Sleeping swaddled and with white noise (a la Happiest Baby on the Block) has worked really well for DD (now 3 months old), but as she outgrows the need to be swaddled I'd like to transition to a new routine. (Plus, having to have white noise on hand can be a pain, and not always appropriate -- like recently in an airport. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">) My goal is for her to be able to be put down for a nap easily by us or any grandparent who's taking care of her (she has many), in any location (home, hotel room, grandparent's house, etc).<br><br>
What cues do you use to indicate to your LO that "it's time to go to sleep now!"<br><br>
Also, if you use a transitional object, how did you select it?

We don't have any sort of routine for our 6 month old... he takes almost all of his naps in the carrier. We notice his signs of fatigue and strap him in!<br><br>
I guess this would make it hard for someone else to watch him (though both of his grandmothers have worn him for naps!). Sometimes I wonder if I should work to get him to nap on his own...but this works so well! And he knows when he gets in the carrier it's nap time--he falls asleep right away.<br><br>
I guess I'm of no help, but I am interested in other responses. Whenever I've tried, I found that he won't sleep on his own for naps anyway, so I don't often try! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
