So my 1 year old daughter is totally not on a sleeping schedule. She takes two naps during the day while my parents are watching her, but she will not fall asleep at night until anytime between 11:00pm-12:30am. I have finally had a breakdown because I cannot deal with only 4 1/2 hours of sleep anymore before I have to get up for work.
Does anyone have suggestions for me on what time she should be going to sleep and how to get her to sleep in her crib without screaming like someone is killing her? It is hard to let her cry because people live above us. We do have a routine, between 5-5:30 she has dinner, 7:30pm is usually a bath and then 8:00pm is a bottle (which I always hope is her last, but it doesnt work out like that). Ideally, I would like her to fall asleep after that 8:00pm bottle. She does sleep in our bed because it is easier for me not to have to go back and forth all night, but of course I would like her to sleep in her crib.
