Babies: 6 - 9 Months

Naptime transition question

My DH and I have been trying, unsuccessfully, to transition LO from her swing for naps to her crib or PnP. To say the very least, it's been hell. Can anyone offer suggestions? She sleeps like a dream at night in her crib. We are going on vacation in a few months and she will have to sleep in her PnP, so I need to get her to realize that this 'baby container' really isn't so bad!

I have put her in with some toys, put her in drowsy (she usually can put herself right to sleep), put her in sound asleep (she wakes right up), added a fleecy blanket to warm up the PnP mattress (still wakes up), turned on music, and finally let her CIO. We get about 20 minutes tops that she will sleep. Then when she wakes up she is MAD. By the end of the day she is so exhausted from lack of sleep that she is just miserable.

Any help would be much appreciated!
