Sometimes the crib is a very foreign and unfamiliar place for a baby.. especially if they have always been in Mom & Dads room.. a bassinet, travel crib, etc.. so starting them out in the crib is scary and new! I would recommend getting them used to it before just trying to MAKE them sleep in there.. this means, try laying them down in there during the day, while you are in the room doing things.. try laying them down for their nap in there too... anything that can slowly warm them up to the new place. Babies are just like us and get used to familiar feelings and places.. so until they get comfy and okay with a crib.. some babies just need extra help! :)
