    My step-daughter just turned one. She sometimes is very resistant to sleep and will SCREAM bloody murder. I found that, sometimes, just laying her down and letting her put herself to sleep works best. It's almost as if she is slowly starting to get to that 'I don't want to be cradeled' stage. It's kind of hit or miss with her. Some nights it's scream until she finally takes the bottle and other nights, like last night, I just have to lay her down, wrap her up and give her her favorite toy and she'll just fall alseep on her own. So you could try that? Or maybe wait until she is actually ready to fall asleep. Try avoiding late afternoon naps. We don't let her nap anytime after 4 o'clock so she'll be tired by bed time for all of us. otherwise, she'll be mad that she's being 'put down' when she has all this built up energy still. Lastly, if it's a continuing issue...might be something medically and would recommend getting your baby checked out. Hope it helps and hope she sleeps better!
