    Thanks Noms I know you get it, two and a half years in and there just doesn't seem light at the end of the tunnel with it, at least she is cheerful this morning, that's a plus

    I'm a zombie this morning so won't offer any advice just a big hug from a sympathetic mum.

    Oh @Mokeybear I've been there Hope it improves soon x

    As for me, I am excited because DH has gotten DS2 to sleep several times this week!! It's like a tiny light at the end of the tunnel - I don't have to be the one to settle him every time. He'll be 1 soon so I think it's a good time to start that transition.

    Last night after 2x 10min naps and 1x 30min sleep I thought DD would be exhausted. Still managed to wake up 3 times between finally getting her down at 7.45 and 10.30pm.

    10.30pm I gave in and fed her then just put her down next to me.... 10min later she wakes up crying. I just lay next to her giving cuddles, shushing and rubbing her back.... 15min later it has just escalated til she is trying to kick away and is getting more and more worked up an we are both I tears, I just end up boobing her again and feel like a terrible mum with a massive side of mummy guilt. This time she finally goes down for a few hours (its now 12.30pm), but still woke 2 or 3 more times.

    Always second guessing my AP choices but when faced with the alterative it just doesn't sit right with me

    Thank you!

    Fingers crossed your little lad starts to settle down also!

    Hugs, it's hard isn't it!
    I don't let DD cry it out either and I have gotten plenty of stick for it, I feel like I can't complain and really it's all I want to talk about sometimes, it's so hard on endless broken sleep, a life in slow motion.

    You are not a terrible mum. You are a fantastic and responsive mum for comforting your baby when she needs it. The alternative would only be more stressful for both of you and not even guaranteed to work. Hope you get a better night tonight xxx

    Yep, what Mokeybear and Bond Girl said! I don't think responding to your baby's needs can be a bad thing, you're doing a great job xx

    Thank you ladies. What you said Monkeybear is so true, all you want to do is vent IRL without getting those 'its her own fault' looks or 'have you tried (insert sleep training method im not comfortable with). I know mostly they mean well but gawd darn it I just want to vent and someone (IRL) to say I know its tough hang in there you are doing the right thing (exactly what you wonderful hubbers have just done).

    You know what thd funny thing is, i dont expect her to sleep through just 2 or 3 night wakings...

    Its not forever so i will enjoy those night snuggles as much as possible.

    PS: All of you are doing a fantastic job! Sleep deprevation sucks.
