It may sound harsh but i think you need to be really tough on her. Imogen at 4months went through a phase where i had to hold her to sleep and when i put her down she'd scream till almost sick. We did controlled crying with her. We layed her down in her cot, kissed her goodnight and left the room, she would scream. We left it 5mins, went back in, didn't say anything just a few shh ing noises then left, and came back 5-10mins later. It took about an hour at first for her to crying herself to sleep but after a week she would be off to sleep in about 5mins. Can't recommend it enough.
