My LO is 8.5 months old and she goes to sleep really late at night and gets up late.. she sleeps as late as 1 or 2 am. I have tried everything, like following a routineeveryday, but she goes to sleep at the same time.. she fights sleep till then.. I even reduced one of her daytime naps. So I tried not putting her to sleepp at 7pm, so that she sleeps by 9 pm for the night but she sleeps at 9 and gets up by 11 and is agaiin up till 1-2 am.. pls help, really need to put her to sleep early.. thanks

Yes a warm bath and giving her cereal mixed with her formula are good ideas. Let her cry and keep the room dark and not too warm. She will eventually sleep.

Is she still on the bottle? If so and you give her cereal mixed in with her formula in her bottle(make sure bottle is warm). It will not only fill her up but make her tired also try a warm bath and use johnson bathtime was and lotion my daughter is 19 months and the lotion and wash still makes her tired. Hope this helps.
