Arghh! Don't know where I'm going wrong! Yesterday is pretty typical example. Bedtime (time asleep) is approx 7.15pm. Naps for 3-4h during the day, last nap ended at 5.45ish but by the time I started her bedtime feed at 6.30 she was going mental. Thrashing, screaming, rubbing eyes, needed dummy to calm down and even then wouldn't feed nicely. Then slept peacefully until waking at midnight and 3am for feeds (but until recently was able to go 8-9h at night). I'm finding it really upsetting and stressful having such a battle at bedtime. Can't see where I'm going wrong. Any ideas?

What are you doing for her bed time routine, id say basically you need to.shorten it and get he down earlier so.drop the bath/song whatever and just pjs, feed and sleep.
