If she's takes a bottle maybe feeding her a bottle while she's in the cot might help as she wouldn't need to be moved after getting drowsy from the feed.
I did try this once with my DD and it didn't work though

I've breastfed to sleep since about 4mo - worked perfectly. Although not ideal, I did what worked for my baby. I stopped 3 weeks ago at 20mo as it no longer worked...
Feed until they sleep, then when you think they're asleep - could to 100 to make sure 😜 I also found rolling off the boob and into bed on his side was better then popping boob out of the mouth then placing babe on his back.. The fluid motion was more effective.

I just read an article on floor beds. Basically you take the mattress out of the cot and they sleep on that on the floor. Means you don't have to try and put them down into the cot. Apparently the downwards movement triggers their falling reflex and wakes them.

At my wits end :( attachment parenting advice pls
It's like last week she got the memo about feeding to sleep but this week she's playing games and just being greedy.

Also. Is it considered normal for a baby to cry in general before they fall asleep? Held or otherwise? Sometimes she does and sometimes she doesn't.

Yes a lot of babies cry before going to sleep.
Perhaps 2 hours is just too long an awake time for her? I would drop down to 1.5

@amiracle4me looks like it's the day for it hey 😢
I don't have an issue getting mine to sleep. I had a sleep consultant out a few months ago and our going to bed routine works to get her to sleep. If I'm home all sleeps are in her cot - she too doesn't like co-sleeping. Dark room, white noise up loud (rainfall sounds), wrap or love to dream swaddle, quick cuddle say sleepy time A and pop in cot. Awake. Time it right - 1.5-2.5hrs awake time depending on time of day and previous sleeps, tired signs etc. at the advice of child health nurse we put large rubber wheels on the cot and if she's unsettled we push the cot back and forth and while doing that she generally calms. If she's calm I then leave her to put herself to sleep. If not I continue to push the cot til she's very drowsy or asleep. This is the only settling method other than feeding to sleep that works for us. We just screwed the wheels into the legs of the cot. Big big hugs. I totally lost it today. I know we both went through the ivf roller coaster which adds another dimension. PM me if you need to chat xo
