The Only Way I Can Put Him To Sleep

The only way I can put my youngest son to sleep is by laying with him in his playpen, lay him across my chest (just like in the first picture) while listening to some nursery songs and rocking him at the same time. The first picture was taken last night and the second pic was just taken hours ago when I was putting him for his nap. 

I tell you, I do not want to sound so mean. I know this is a nice way to bond with him but at the same, it can be frustrating at times because sometimes no matter how sleepy he is, he will fight it and try to stay awake and then he gets so grumpy and then I get grumpy because I got some other things that I have to finish other than just lay with him for hours at a time! 

Every bed time or nap time, it literally takes him over an hour or two before he'll finally conk out. And it is very uncomfortable for me because his playpen is not long enough so I am not able to stretch my legs. But all in all, I do enjoy my time with him especially when I don't have to worry about other things. I guess this is just part of being a parent, savor the time no matter if it's good or bad!
