I have tried to give my little girl a bath before bed time. That worked for about a week. I have tried to give her some baby cereal before bed that worked for a bit. I don't like to put her down for bed with a bottle I would rather put her to bed with a bink. That is what her doc says to do anyway. If she acts like she is hungry then ill give he something but. Im running out of things to do. I try to put her in her swing and she sometimes goes to sleep there. UGH its just a constant battle with her. If any one can help please let me know what worked the best for you.Answer Question

I had a very hard time putting my son to sleep at a set time every night too. All of the things you have tried seem to work better in combination. I bathe my son first then I feed him. After that I rock him a little until he starts to get sleepy or ill put him in his swing. I then lay him in his crib and play the music on his crib toy and I might read him a book if I feel up to it and he drift off to sleep. If that doesn't work I let him cry and keep his music playing. If he cries for more than 10 minutes without falling asleep I will rock him some more while singing to him. Usually if you stick to a routine your baby will start to understand that its bed time. It was hard at first but my son now lets me know that around 9 its bedtime!
