Habit: Your child has learned that his favorite place to fall asleep is while you hold him. When babies are little, many parents rock them to sleep. Over time this becomes their signal to relax. When you place him in his crib he sense it's not your lap and cannot relax. When he looks sleep put in crib - he may fuss for awhile but let him learn to fall asleep in there.
