@gingermillie I just wanted to give you a positive story. I know it's great that posters are sympathising with you but I know the last thing I wanted to hear is that people still had cr@p sleepers at 12 months, 2 years etc as the thought that it couldn't be fixed or would be ongoing reduced me to tears.
Well my dd1 was mostly a nightmare until with sleeping until around 7 months I think, with good periods to get my hopes up thinking I had it cracked only to be crushed by phases of nights of hell again, when I found a book and routine that worked for us and it all gradually got better and easier. The cr@p phases became less frequent and less in duration. Whilst she never became one of those magical 7-7 babies she would sleep pretty darn good (ie an 8-10 hour stretch then a quick feed) and I could manage with that
I have my fingers crossed for you. I was there at that point with a 6 month old cr@p sleeper and no end in sight, but it did get better
You'll pick up some good tips/techniques at sleep school and it'll all work out for you and your dd1 I'm sure, and come out at the other end remembering those endless nights quite fondly lol!
Eta: I breastfed on demand too, what a load of toss from your mchn
