Unhappy I can't get my 5 mo to sleep....

My DD will not fall asleep unless she is in my arms. Which is fine except I can never get anything done. My dishes are piling up and so is the laundry.

She will only fall asleep if I take her on a drive or a walk in the stoller or I nurse her to sleep. I don't have time to do all of that. I got to school full time, as well as be a full time mom and housewife. Lately, dinner has not been done in good timing and ike I said housework is at a stand still.

What can I do? What do you guys do? Am I teaching bad habits if I nurse her to sleep? Do I let her CIO, which I am not a fan of? Is there someway I can get her to sleep without crying?

I've tried music and baby sounds, binky, comfort toys?

Help! and FAST. She is so tired right now and I don't know what else to do?
