    Just me. I've held/carried/cuddled her for the past 12hrs. Minus 1x 5min shower. And now dh has msged to say he won't be home for a bit more.

    I'm exhausted. So doing bedtime/dinner myself again.

    Oh honey. I feel some of your pain. But I had DH. And no other kids. This was my DS. But I at least got him to sometimes sleep in the bassinet for 30 mins here and there.

    Are any of your family able to fly down at all for a bit?

    Pretty much all of mine were koala babies. Add to that my youngest was in a hip brace and life was beyond hell.

    Hugs. It's hard and horrible.

    My DS never slept longer than 45mins from the day he was born and it never improved despite routines, books and everything else we tried, he broke my husband and I many times over.

    DD was a stage one clinger too but only woke once in the night from 12 weeks to 6 months and all hell broke lose.

    I called in a sleep consultant who helped us with DD but DS broke her too and eventually by 5yo he slept through the night without coming in to us every night at least two or three times. He had his adenoids and tonsils out at 3 which at least meant we didn't have to sleep in with him as we broke that disaster. We had seen numerous sleep consultants prior to this.

    Co sleeping was not an option for us, I am a terrible sleeper and cannot stand my fidgety children in bed with us plus they both snore and are mouth breathers which keeps me awake.

    I'm not a bad parent, I didn't fail my children, I did everything I could and it didn't work. It stinks when you have non sleepers and quite honestly until you've lived through the hell of if it you cannot preach what to do based on some stupid book that may work for some and may not work for others.

    I'm so thankfully this thread wasn't around when I was going through this with DS, I would have been shattered.

    I don't want to get involved (as I am no expert on sleep) but I just wanted to offer you hugs as I am unable to offer physical help.... I would be there in a heartbeat to help out if I could xxxx

    Eta:sorry to derail but I couldn't not say something

    Can I ask what you are posting this in relation to and what it has to do with the OP? Pleas not let the thread degenerate further into personal attacks.
