cry it out works well once the babies are a little older, like yours. put them down to bed and give a hug and leave the room. and go in to check on them in five minutes if they are still crying and tell them it's bed time, good night, i love you and tell them go to sleep do not touch them, unless they are hurt or have soiled their diaper, 5 minutes later do the same thing,

Can you let her cry it out? It sounds bad but after a couple nights she should get the point and go to bed.
If you just can't bring yourself to do that go into the room and say 'it's bedtime' and do NOT pick the child up. Leave the room and then 5 minutes if she's still crying go and do the same thing. Do this as many times as you have to until she settles down to sleep. That way (s)he knows you're there but that it is time for bed and you are not going to pick her up.
Power through mom!
