Help baby self soothe to sleep 7 month

We have been "sleep training" for a few months now, she is good about taking naps throughout the day about 3-4 (short 30 min..if we are lucky an hour every so often) but has not been able to self soothe to sleep more than probably 2 times. She is rolling so sleeps in a sleep sack..but loves to roll around and flare her arms around once she is put down sleepy and therefore wakes herself up. Any tips on how to help her self soothe in a sleep sack?

    @FPayan Im so happy she is taking good naps during the day! The most important thing for her to do at night to learn to self soothe is fall asleep by herself in the crib at the beginning of the night. Once she can do that it will be much easier for her to fall back to sleep when she wakes. Its fine if she rolls around before getting to sleep - in fact, the crib is like a gym for her - she is practicing in the crib all the things she is learning during the day. Its important to get the timing right so that she is not overtired but also that she is tired enough.
