Somebody please please PLEASE help me out on this one cause I dunno what it is that I'm doing wrong. We have our 5 month old on a sleep schedule the best we can. We start shutting the house down around 7:45, right now she doesn't really "play" so we give her a bath every other night, I feed her to sleep and she's asleep by around 10 (ideally). Probably 3 out of 7 days. The other days she is just waaaay too awake and fussy and wont sleep. I don't let her nap after 5pm. If I put her in the crib when she's not asleep she'll scream for hours (I'm not exaggerating) before my husband or I eventually go and get her, which leaves us walking around with her or feeding her in our bed. I need something that works, because as it is she decides when we go to sleep and sometimes that isn't until 3am.
