We had Henry in a Moses basket in our room for the first few months so it was lightweight and easily portable. When he was around 2-3 months old, we started transitioning him to the crib in his room by putting him in there for naps in the beginning. Because he was so used to the Moses basket, we put the basket (with him in it) into the crib so he still had a familiar environment. It may sound a bit weird or unusual but this method managed to blend the familiar with the unfamiliar. After he got used to the crib in about a week, we took away the basket and had him sleep in his crib for naps and night time.
