From what I remember, around a year was a really challenging time, especially for sleep (generally the 6 month marks were and still are challenging, mine is now 2.5). They're going through so many changes physically and mentally that it makes it hard for them to settle. With mine, I found the more I tried to wrangle her in or keep her from moving, the more she tried to. I guess I just tried to let her kick, crawl, roll, etc. And then kept cycling back to bouncing, nursing. Bedtime around a year generally took me and hour or more. I just tried to make peace with it, as the more impatient I was, the longer it would take. Around 14 months, she went from 2 naps to 1 and bedtime got a lot easier, taking more like 20 minutes. Now at 2.5, we're back to about an hour. Things go through a cycle of bwing easier and harder. I guess I just figure I'll wait it out and soon it will all be a distant memory. Good luck, mama.
