getting my 1 year old to sleep

My daughter turned 1 year August 15 and for the past 2-3 weeks she has been protesting sleep at home and daycare. Not just naps but at night too. Online i was reading and it said babies around this age should be getting 10-13 hours of sleep. However i don't think it is even 10 hours of sleep. At night she is up 1-2 times a night for 1-2 hours each time before it would be for max of 15-20 min for a bottle and i have tried water and formula bottles to get her back to sleep and nothing works, she hates the water to get her back to sleep! Last night it took her 2 1/2 hours to fall back asleep. It got even worse after she had 6 days of diarrhea ending on her year birthday. She was doing decent with waking up and it just keeps gradually getting worse and worse! Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get her to nap/ sleep at night better. We have tried a bunch of things like shorter naps, bedtime bath, i have tried tylenol before bed for teething. And nothing seems to be working for me. Even going to bed later doesn't seem to be working!

My daughter turned 1 on july 30th. For the last week she has either been taking late napsor none at all and trying to get her to sleep at night has been a disaster.. One night it was after 4 before she eventually went to sleep.. the others time its around 1 am and the only way i could get her to sleep was to put her in her buggy with a jumper cuddled up to her face. She's teething at the mo so this isnt helping her either. I know this is nohelpbut just wanted to let you know your not the only one going through it. Hope everything goes back to normal for you soon :)
