How can I get my 14 month old to stop fighting going to sleep?

I am having trouble getting my 14 month old to go to sleep at night. She is fine at naptime but at night she will fight it at all costs. She just recently moved out of our room into her own room. She did great for the first couple of weeks but in the last week it's become a nightmare. It's almost like she is having separation anxiety. She will lay in her crip and be fine if we are in the room, the second we walk out of the room she screams. We used to be able to giver her her bottle and rock her and she was out halfway thru it. Can anyone give me some ideas of thing to try to get her to go to sleep?

My 20 month old is going through that phase again, right now. Sometimes I can get her down just long enough to go to the bathroom or get a sip of drink. Sigh.

I wish I could use scented bath washes and lotions, but my babies have sensitive skin.

What kind of bedtime routine do you have? With my daughter, during bath time I would use the lavender baby wash that is for night time and she would go down easier.
