At around 4 months and up, it's typically easier to get your baby on a schedule. Try to be flexible yet predictable with a routine. But it's usually not until about the 40th week - 10 months - that your baby is more in-tune with a 24-hour day. Some babies are different and nap, eat, and sleep great. Just try and keep your daughter's schedule predictable because babies like that. Try to keep her nap times, feedings, bed-time at the same time every day. You may have to do trial and error with what works best for her. When she's tired - look for the signs so you can try and lay her down for a nap. (Rubbing her eyes, yawning, decrease in playing). Once you start doing this daily, things will fall into place and times will start to match-up.
