I've discovered that Claire responds really, really well to "The Ballad of Serenity" as a lullaby. (That's the theme song from Firefly in case you didn't recognize the title.) I'll sing it softly to her at bedtime or naptime as I hold her and then transfer her to the crib, repeating it as necessary until she drifts off. After three weeks of this, she's learned to konk out within a few minutes with hardly a complaint.
I feel like I need to mail a check to Joss Whedon or something.
