How to get her to fall asleep on her own..

My 9month old, she still has two naps a day. She nurses every three hours around the clock. I don't mind that she isn't sttn yet. Totally fine by me. But how do I get her to fall asleep on her own?? Sometimes she'll fall asleep when nursing and I can put her down. Most most of the time it doesn't happen, and takes me an our just to get her to go to sleep. I hate CIO, so i try to rock her a bit, and put her down when she is quiet. But soon she starts the screaming. I try to see if she will stop on her own, not too long, and not to rush in there. But she won't unless I rock her to sleep totally. And even then she is resisting. She has a pretty good schedule that works for her. I am just can't spend that much time getting to go sleep every day. With my first two, I just rocked them less and less and it only took about a week to get them to go to sleep on their own. They both used soothers, and Charlotte doesn't. Any suggestions would be great.TIA

DD (9mo) wont go to sleep unless shes nursing either. Every day is a little different and its crazy at my house. She def does not fall asleep on her own and neither did DS.....she wont take bink so thats a transition tool we cant use for her like we did for DS.

Mine is the same way. Try a white noise maker like a fan or humidifier. That worked wonders to help DD stay asleep.
