B began sleeping in the playpen when his need for kicking in the night exceeded my ability to ignore said kicking.  He liked having the netted sides to struggle against.  He slept there for a few months.  In preparation for L, we decided to move B to the bottom bunk in G's room.  The first night he cried as I lay next to him for 10+minutes, and then went to sleep.  But the next night he just lay singing with me, then P, then me, then P for about an hour before finally sleeping.  The next night he went to sleep after I sat in a chair in the room for 15 minutes.  And that's what I've been doing ever since.  I sit on a nice comfortable wooden chair and breathe.  Sometimes we hold hands a bit.  It's great.
