It's frustrating as all hell, like it's my fault as a parent.
    I feel your pain as we have been in the same boat. Ds was waking a minimum of 3 times a night, but anywhere up to 7 times until recently (he is now 15.5 months).

    Thankfully it has improved to just once most nights, except on those he is over tired like last night.

    He has started only sleeping for an hr around 11am instead of 2 plus. He had a birthday party in the arvo yesterday so no way would he have an afternoon nap. So of course we were up 3 times again last night and he wouldn't settle for almost an hour the last time.

    Makes me feel like never going out anymore, but then we both go insane stuck at home.

    And of course it is a work day for me today so I have to go to work exhausted again.

    My vent for the day: the fact that DS2 "only" woke 3 times last night made it a "good" night. 😴

    Yep last week the night before my first day back at work I had at most 2 hours, the next night wasn't much better. It was the worst she has been in a long long time. It's not that bad now but 2-3 wake ups is not as good as she used to be.
    Glad I'm not the only one. I could cope before but being back at work it's killing me.
    She's just started walking a bit a few weeks ago and I know that mucks with sleep but I thought it would of settled by now. I'm just not sure what the problem is.
    Waiting for this magical sleeping through the night thing to happen (consistently).....she was heading in that direction but now it's gone tits up, yet again

    Same. Bub was almost sleeping through but I had to move the cot away from my bed. Now he is not even a meter away and its like I have banished him to another room.
    The ever elusive sleep through is again out of my reach.

    Baby finally goes to sleep at 8pm.
    Cue wake ups at 8:20 (wtf?)
    9:30
    10:30
    11:20
    12:20
    1:20
    3:20
    3:50.. when I finally give up and go in an cosleep.
    Then my boys wake at 5:30 and release almighty racket upon the house. Of course I'm mad, I go in their room and tell them to STFU (not really using those words, but it's what I was thinking in my head) go back to DD only to have her wake at 6am.

    HOW in anyones eyes is that a good nights sleep? It's been happening the past few nights and I am OVER IT and on EDGE!

    Seriously WTF is that about?

    Was wondering how you're going @Nomsie. Now I know :/
    Both boys woke up before 6 am this morning. DS2 was awake at 5 am pooing in his nappy after waking at least 5 times overnight.

    Oh early morning poos are certainly a rude wake- up call! Especially before breakfast!!
    Yeah I'm very grumpy in the mornings lately and it's no prize for guessing why. By about 11am I mellow out again and go back to "qe sera sera" lol!
    I think she is going through a mammoth learning leap which is why her sleep is exceptionally crap ATM. She is only 6 months and hasn't yet mastered tummy to back rolling, but has been sitting unaided for over a month, has great speech sounds and now using someone's arms as counter balance had started to pull herself up! I swear she is the most backwards baby I gave ever heard of! She obviously hasn't read all the development books because its all happening in the wrong order!

    OMG DS2 is exactly the same!! He's 7 mo now but doing the same as your LO. Still can't quite crawl yet and still can't roll tummy to back consistently. But he is sort of crawling/dragging himself around, he can sit up by himself, pull himself to stand and chat with us. Too much learning to sleep properly!!

    One of those nights:

    Put baby to sleep
    Put 3yo to bed, baby wakes up crying
    Leave 3yo in room to tend to baby
    Baby almost asleep when 3yo comes in, wakes baby
    Get 3yo to lie down while putting baby back to sleep
    Putting 3yo to bed, baby wakes up crying again
    Leave 3yo in bed to tend to baby again
    Get baby back to sleep
    Return to 3yo to find he did a poo in his pants
    Clean up 3yo and put him to bed
    Baby wakes up
    Re-settle baby
    Get on BubHub

    The End
