Totally agree on the drowsy but awake propaganda!

I get that too. Long, long blinks. Put her in the cot. Even longer blinks. Pop! Eyes open. Roll over, chatter, laugh at me. So annoying when I'm trying to teach her to go to sleep in the cot.

Reading through this thread actually makes me feel a bit better.
My DS is 9 months and just would never self settle, ever no matter what I tried. I won't do controlled crying or CIO and even if I do let him cry for a few mins he just gets more worked up and awake.
Day sleeps are a nightmare I spend more time rocking him than he does asleep. He can have 25 mins sleep them ping! Wide awake and ready for another 3 hrs playing. Sleeping for an hour in a day nap its once in a blue moon. It's like he doesn't need the sleep.
I have never, ever seen my kid look "drowsy" or "sleepy" every single sleep is a fight. It's exhausting.

My DD is 12 months old now and has been a nightmare in the sleeping department! After months of spending most of my night in her room I decided to try a new tactic. I was rocking her to sleep and changed to getting her to go to sleep in her cot. It did involve letting her cry, but I stayed in the room with her. Tresillian call it parental presence method. It worked almost immediately. I sat with get until she cried herself to sleep (took approx 30 mins). Each sleep it got easier and easier. Now I put her in her cot and she goes to sleep herself with me still in the room (still working on getting out!). She stopped waking multiple times before I went to bed and slept longer overnight. She still wakes overnight, usually at around midnight and 4ish, but it is WAY better than before! I know that method is not for everyone but it worked for us! Before doing this I was desperate for sleep. My DS was nothing like this and my DH even felt done sleep deprivation this time!

Ugh it never ends! Tonight 3 yo fell asleep on the floor at 6pm while I was putting baby to bed. He didn't wake up when I picked him up so I've put him in bed so who knows when he'll wake up or what kind of night I'll have!!
