My little girl was the same way. She would always want to take a nap around 7pm so I just started playin with her to try to keep her up for as long as I could then I would put her down when she wasn't havin it any more. I did this for about a week and now she is in bed by 8:30 and wakes at 6:30 everyday. It also ajusted her day time nap times. Hope this will help.

My 6 month old sleeps from midnight usually shes up right now until 5 am I was just wishing she'd sleep at least until 7 lol. My first one who is 19 today slept from 8pm to 7am from the time he was 4 or 5 months. They are all different.

You need to start to change her schedule...if it hasn't changed, it probably won't. You want to start by moving everything back 15 minutes. Give her her bath earlier, give her her last feeding earlier. Doctors say to only adjust it 15 minutes at a time to avoid chaos. Slowly over time you can change that schedule. I moved my son's bedtime from 10pm back to 8:15ish and it is so much nicer because then I have some time to myself after he goes to sleep instead of putting him to bed and crashing myself. Good luck!
