The best way to move a baby's bedtime earlier is by shifting your baby's bedtime earlier by 15 minutes per day. As you move bedtime earlier, remember that it's not always the case that they will also wake up earlier. Sometimes, they will sleep longer!
If your baby is going to an earlier bedtime as part of a natural evolution of their body clock in the first few months of life, it might also be easier to just combine the final nap with bedtime. Many babies will take their last nap around 6:30pm, and that's a very natural bedtime for aa 4 month old. If you would prefer a quicker approach, you can extend the final wake window and put them to sleep around 6:30pm. They will likely wake up, and then keep them in their room until they go back to sleep. If your baby is over 4 months, you can start sleep training to connect these sleep cycles.
