My baby sleeps for everyone but me

My baby takes really good naps for other people like my mom and my husband and goes down reasonably well for my husband at night. But for me... she often cries and won't sleep. I've gotten to the point where I don't even try to put her down anymore. I just let her go to sleep whenever she decides to yield. The other night, my husband wasn't home and I had to put her to bed by myself. It took a hour and a half and I eventually just nursed her to sleep (which we haven't really been doing for about a month, but I was desperate). Has anyone else had this problem or have any coping strategies/suggestions?

Your little one doesn't want to miss out on any fun with you! Do you ever lay down with her?

I am having the exact same problem! I am a working mom so anytime I am home my daughter is just rowdy and playful, so when I try to put her to bed she just wants to play and won't settle for me. I brought the play to my bed so we laid side by side and gave her a toy to play with and had baby talk time... it took me a while but shes starting to come around... I just tried to look at why she wouldn't sleep for me by talking to other people and seeing if I could put anything together. I figured she just associated me with play time and I worked with that.
