No matter what I do, my 4 month old will not go to sleep before 11pm/12am. I have tried countless things. She used to sleep through the night until about 7/8am but now wakes up once or twice to eat during the night. I am so exhausted, I work full time and take care of her at night alone from 530pm-3/4/5/6am because my boyfriend works the night shift. Please help :(

What is her routine during the day? How many hours is she sleeping in the daytime? How long has she been doing this for?
It may just be a growth spurt and she is hungry at the moment, in which case, you may need to increase her feeds during the day.

Oh that's not good :(

You should be putting your baby down to sleep when he is showing tired signs I think. Talk with your husband about it being healthy for the baby to go down when needed and if he wants to spend time with him, to hold him while he rests for a little bit. That is not good for baby to be kept awake.
