How to get my 11 month old to sleep all night?

My daughter would sleep all night from birth to 5 months. But now she wakes up two to three times during the night. I've tried everything bath, feeding her solid food nothing works. She also only takes one nap during the day

To sleep through the night from birth is highly unusual. Newborns need to eat every 4 hours. She is probably waking frequently because is is sleep deprived. A tired baby will sleep less than a well rested one. It doesn't sound like it makes sense but it is true. Sleep begets sleep, is what my mom used to say. At 11 months you can expect two naps, one short morning nap and a longer afternoon nap. If she is really ready to drop the morning nap, than try to move lunch early so she can get down a take a good long afternoon nap, 2-3 hours. She may need to learn to soothe herself so put her down awake and let her fall asleep on her own. Maybe she is teething?
