My daughter is almost 11 months old and still fights us on going to bed. She usually goes down between 9 to 10:30. She gets a bottle with rice in it before we put her down. And she usually gets up at least once for a feeding then goes back to sleep for about 2 hours then is up for good. We try to put her down still awake a little but then she gets up and cry's till we pick her back up and rock her to sleep. She even does this for naps(if she takes one). I want her to be able to learn to put herself to sleep and sleep more if possible. Any advice would be good for this first time mom. Thanks.
