5 months old - too clingy

I have a 5 month old daughter. She is my first and since she was born have made the mistake of tending to her every cry and noise, now she is too clingy.
If I put her down for one moment in her basket, bouncer or my bed she starts screaming and refuses to stop until I pick her up, I've even resorted to her being on my hip as I wash up! She also sleeps with me (in a very safe way - been checked out) and now she'll be six months soon I want her to go into her cot - how do I do this?
Your help and advice is greatly appreciated ;)
