This past month I have been actively trying to put him down after he's asleep. And it's been working! That's a win for me. To hold him while he falls asleep and then put him down if I need to. I usually put him on the couch, since that's normally where I am. (He's on my bed in the pictures, I was hanging out in my room cleaning while he slept). He's even asleep right now as I type this!
