Thanks for query,
You have got simple difficult problem !
Child psychology is such that we may not ignore.
You can use cradle having music system attached.
So while cradling with music she will go for sleep.
Ok and bye.

Welcome to HCM
Ur daughter has a sleep is called sleep association.
The child in such a case is habituated n depends upon a person(mother)or thing or place(mothers lap) for sleep n cannot sleep without it even if tired.
U can try following tips
Make a fixed nap n sleep time schedule
Do not feed or play with her just before sleep time.try to relax her with head massage,bath or music or story
Try to make her sleep after sunset say 8 pm not later than 9
Try to put her down when she is drowsy but not fully asleep.Be consistent n in few
days to mths she ll learn to sleep
