Hi everyone I'm a first-time mom. I am a stay-at-home, 22 years old, and my DD will be 11 months in a couple days. I've been trying to get my DD to learn to fell asleep on her own, but she doesn't want to go to bed until around 10 or 11 pm, we are trying to get her used to go to bed by at the latest 9 pm. It's a fight, we get her all ready for bed, give her her bottle, brush her teeth/gums have her say good night to everyone and take her up to bed. The DH and I end up going back up and 3-5 times each (so like 6-10 times) to get her to stop fussing so much, crying or lately she's has starting screaming. I love my babygirl but, I'm more tired now then I was when she was a newborn. When she was that little, she would wake up like once or twince during the night to eat and get changed that go back to sleep. She'd go to bed by between 7-8pm. The older she gets, the harder it is to get her to bed or stay asleep. During the day, she takes 1 or 2 naps, if its 1 nap she will sleep for an hr to and 1.5 hrs if its two naps she will sleep for 15 to 45 mins per nap. Most of the time though she has been taken just an afternoon nap. Any one have any ideas?
