    Hugs @Nomsie. Our DDs do sound very similar! We can at least take comfort in the fact we are not the only one!!! Once I get to about four failed attempts (or an hour in length) at putting her down in her cot and my arms and back have had enough I use the buggy and push her back and forth in that. But feel like a total failure doing it. Like yours, she's asleep but springs awake crying when I try to put her down. Then wakes all night protesting I've left her.

    While writing that I was feeding her to sleep and she bit me!!! The other boob is still painful from when it happened the other day and now both will hurt. Give me a break child!!!!

She wakes screaming each time for the breast I have started to offer water first so now she will only bf twice a night. It has started to effect my mood through the day too. Here's hoping for a. Change soon!!!

    With dd1 - she just suddenly outgrew waking up around 14mths. Very easily night weaned, just three nights to go from 2 overnight feeds to nothing.

    Dd2 I actively had to get her to drop those night feeds, usually 11pm, 1am, 3am and 5 ish am. First was the 1am one around 7-8mths. I made sure she was really full at 11pm then went to sleep with dd1. Dh dealt with resettling for a few nights. Then it was water/patting from me whilst she was in her cot as she is a terrible bed sharer.

    The 11pm feed I dropped at 9-10mths and the 3-4am feed at 14-15mths. All times it was freaking painful.


    But now at 3.5& 21mths they both sleep well overnight bar nightmares and illness. great naps too!

    I remember all too well the sheer desperation on nights when baby wouldn't sleep. (My boys had a few)

    It physically cannot last forever- he has to crash sooner or later. I was rocking in the foetal position and crying by the end of it, so I can only imagine how you are feeling!

    Be kind to yourself xx

    Ended up co sleeping which is a big no no for me simply because I did it with DD and she's still in our bed! I put him back in his bed at 11.30 he stayed there until 3.30am! Longest sleep he has ever had. I don't hold my breath that it will happen again though.
