At 5 1/2 months old, she could be teething. I would suggest trying some oragel. As far as the bedtime/nap thing, I'd say start doing a routine like a story or giving her a bath something so that she knows bedtime is soon. GL.

I would try a feeding schedule and a morning nap after noon nap and a bedtime routine bath bottle bed and at night if shes not hungry rub her back or rock her for a min lay her back down shes at the age where they say they have to learn how to comfort them self ( I wouldnt use orajel if its teething I tried it on myself...the baby orajel its horrible and works for like maybe 5 min I used teething tablets on my daughter they are natural and taste and work better in my opinion)
