If I was you I would be taking that as a win (him feeding to sleep isn't the end of the world)
Now go and do something that helps you to relax and unwind a bit 😃
Keep persevering, it is hard being a parent sometimes, but even harder trying to deal with it with the high levels of anxiety you have....
Baby steps you are both still learning and their wants and needs change all the time at that age, you finally think you have the hang of something and then they go and change it on you...teething etc...
I am also in Brisbane if you need any help.
Just think of us all as your little cheerleading team, supporting you!

Once he is asleep, is he generally sleeping through or does he wake often?

I was just wondering what his night sleeps are like. They must be okay as you've never mentioned them being bad.
My final suggestion to you is why don't you see if you can go back to work early and put him in childcare or hire a nanny or family day care? Then you wouldn't be having to settle him as often which might make those fewer times easier.

His night sleeps are fairly good once we get him down. Im not worried about them, its just a drama getting him down to begin with
Im not sure if I can go back to work early but ill find out

I'm in Brisbane too and happy to help out. I've been through the path of a terrible sleeper (silent reflux) and know how dark mentally and emotionally it can get. Please pm me if you want to chat or I can come around and give you a hand one day.

Sorry if this is unhelpful, firstly want to say you are doing an amazing job and lots of people who aren't even posting in this thread are cheerleading you!
Is it possible to just do the least worst thing to help him sleep for now? DS2 (4 months old) just won't settle at the moment without intervention. He loves being rocked to sleep but he is too big and my back aches when I do it, so I just refuse. I am however, okay with patting him to sleep and feeding him to sleep if I'm desperate. You might be starting a habit but you can start one that you are happy to break when Bub is ready/your anxiety issues are dealt with. I feel that's a happy medium between rocking to sleep and trying to let him self settle while he is screaming for hours.

Are you able to feed him lying down? I used to lie on my side on the bed, dd feed and would drop off to sleep on the bed and I would leave her to nap there with some towels rolled up under the edges of the fitted sheet to stop her from rolling off. But you would need to stay pretty close to the bed in case he wakes up and has a tumble off the bed.

Were you feeding him solids at sleep school?
Just wondering if you're feeding him 'differently' so he's hungry.
