My LO is 9.5 months old now & we have had an established bedtime routine from very early one. We do bath, dressed, cuddles/story (often skipped as LO just wants milk) and breast feed. He would often fall asleep feeding around 7pm and I would transfer him to crib/cot. However this routine doesn't mean he will actually sleep. we went through a development spurt at around 5 months & have 5 weeks of refusing to go to sleep until about 10pm then waking for 6 feeds a night. He then overnight went back to going to sleep between 7-7.30pm! He would still wake for feeds but 2-3 a night rather that 6. We have now had a further 5weeks of refusing to go to sleep early (we persist with the routine throughout) and frequent night wakings. A further development spurt combined with 5 teeth in two weeks definately had an impact. I've been reading the Wonder Weeks which covers all the development stuff and how this can disrupt.
So in short I think start with getting a routine of mealtime, followed by bath/wash, read/gentle play (cuddles etc) & then bed. Somewhere in there you would put in your feed. Some people prefer to feed before bath to avoid association of sleep with feeding. Personally I feed last & if LO falls asleep feeding so be it but if he doesn't we then have a battle on our hands! I go back to work in a couple of months and pray we can get a routine where LO sleeps earlier and wakes less. Personally I can't do controlled crying but I do know otherrs who have with varying degrees of success.
