    We are top of the waiting list, usually a spot comes up once a month or so.

    I understand that I'm fortunate enough to not NEED the place and that others need it more. It's just I'd talked it up so much to dd1 and she had a brand new bag etc.....

    Sigh.
    Oh, that really sucks for you both, especially when it only happened at the very last moment! You did amazingly well not to cry- I suspect I would have.

    I hope your DD gets a place soon.

    That is such a shame! I feel so sad for you guys. How did your Dd react? Did you still do orientation?

    Dd1 didn't hear any of it she was too busy looking at a paw patrol trike lol. We didn't do orientation as such but the director let us stay and play for as long as we wanted (we stayed an hour) and she hung out with us. It was obvious she felt awful. I just told dd1 we will come back another time and she seemed happy with this, completely oblivious that my heart was breaking for her and me.

    That's a shame LMS, hope a spot opens up quickly for you Dd1.

    We had a little bit of 'success' last night. I decided after 18 weeks of handling the nights alone (my husband doesn't 'do tired' very well and works very hard long hours so I've always let him sleep knowing he would help if I asked but I get the guilts being a SAHM and all and I wanted him to WANT to help and insist but he never has) and him being away last week that he was taking the ****! I don't do tired well either, I just have no choice! Arghh anyway!! Lol I sent him some not so friendly texts at about 6am Friday morning where he was no doubt sleeping peacefully in his comfy motel bed haha and told him he could help out all night at least on Friday and Saturday as I am DONE!! So last night he jumped up and got him when he woke, I fed and be resettled him back into his cot and he slept for about 3 hours between wakes as opposed to the 20min-1.5rs blocks I get and today he had had a 1.5hr nap and 2hr nap!WT?!?!

    Anyway long one story short perhaps having DH involved has helped??? He was 4montys yesterday

    LMS - I am joining you in your exhaustion

    Ds2 was doing so well. He was self settling and waking maybe 2-3 times a night. Easily the best of my three kids so far. He is 13 weeks now and this week a switch went off and it all went out the window. He is rejecting his dummy, he wants boob all throughout the night, he won't self settle anymore... My dd (23 months) wakes at 5am every morning and I am finding by the time she has woken I have had maybe 2 hrs of broken sleep

    Anyway, thanks for this thread. Its nice to know that I'm not alone, but I'm sorry you are also struggling.

    Always happy for others to join my pity party lol!
    Dd1 wakes around 530am so I completely relate.

    Last night sucked balls. Had the opportunity to nap today (DH is home) but funnily enough, I'm too tired to sleep.....

    Default Not sleeping and not coping- help

    @MrsIsMe, I'm like you, I don't like to ask DH for help, I'm on mat leave at the moment, he just can't cope with little sleep either so it's usually not worth it, I figure it's better to have one functioning adult haha. He keeps saying I just need to ask but I don't want to have to ASK, I want him to offer.

    He is going away this week for 3 nights for work, I'm yet to decide if it will make things easier (one less person to think about/look after) or worse (no looking forward to a break from dd1 when he gets home).

    It's sooo relieving to know there are others out there with non sleeping babies, particularly when not a first time mum..... I guess on the outside it looks like I've got my shiz together but it's a complete facade

    My DH constantly says 'all you need to do is ask' and I guess I should but it would be nice if they offered or in fact just took over occasionally without the need to nag.

    I do sometimes find it easier if DH is away as you just get on and do things your way - with no added seething if DH is being annoying/not pulling his weight.

    Gosh, this makes me sound terrible towards DH but I'm coming off a terrible nights sleep so I'm feeling quite stabby!

    Totally 100% get what you're saying. Can't put my finger exactly on why but sometimes it's easier when DH isn't around 😔
