Baby Sleep Schedule

I am trying to get my baby on a sleep schedule and it's very challeging to say the least. Does anyone have their baby on a schedule. Also my baby does not take long naps, she takes little cat naps (15-25mins at a time). Any suggestions on how I can help her sleep better would be greatly appreciated.

I was in the same club and my mom said put him down and I did. Also I wipe him down with a nice warm towel, give him a bottle and lay him down. When ever he will not go and he gets fussy I make sure he is dry and fed. Then I put him in his swing and let him yell. The funny thing is I fall asleep listening to his cries. He is getting use to it and returning to long naps and going to bed. I do know that everyone says what ever you do be consistant about it and do not give in and the baby will learn. Hope it works out.

I gave my son a night time routine. he goes to sleep anywhere from 8-9 depending on his last nap. But he gets a bath or wiped down every night, followed by a story, then a bottle. He's out in 20mins and sleeps until about 530/6ish. Then he gets another bottle and sleeps until 9:30a.  

Now the daily naps we are still working on. Because he too is a cat napper lol. Today I decided to let him cry it out...I only lasted 6 mins. They say 20 mins of crying is ok and it normally only takes 3 days to get them use to the naps. I'll let you know when and if I make it lol. I can tell he is sleepy but it just fighting the sleep. He normally goes to sleep about an hour and a half after a bottle. So I just pay attention to his sleepy eyes and try to get him down when I see it.  Let me know if you find something else that works.
