We need some help/advice. My daughter is just over a year old, and it takes forever to get her to sleep. She has always been a poor sleeper, and we are reaching the end of our rope. It is taking up to two hours to get her to sleep. She sleeps with us and is BF.
She used to nurse to sleep, but that no longer is enough. I will lay down with her and nurse her, but she will get off the bed and walk off!! So, then we go back out to the living room and have quite time (read, play with blocks, etc). When she starts getting cranky, I will try again. Or, my husband will try rocking her with soft music. She will look like she is just about to fall asleep, then she will wake herself up! We will do this until she falls asleep. Or, until we admit defeat, and get into the car. It is so frustrating. I don't know what we are doing wrong. I know she is teething, and she just got her first molar. When she goes to bed, sometimes she sleeps until we go to bed, and sometimes she is up every hour. I make sure not to have any caffeine after noon. I don't know what else to do. Any suggestions???
ETA: She just transitioned to one nap a day, which is usually about two hours long around noon.
