I have 2 boys, 2 and 4 1/2. My 2 year, went through a phase where he would wake up 4-5 times a night. It was horrible. He would want a bottle, and he was going through 2-4 diapers a night, and sometimes the sheets too. Finally, he sleeps with me. I go to bed with them both, and they sleep with me all night. My husband works 3 nights a week 9 p.m. till 2 a.m. and on the other nights he is up till 1 or 2 am or later, so he does not come to bed with me or us. He is going to bed an hour or 2 before we get up, so this works for us. But I was exhausted and I couldn't do it any longer. So I gave in, and he sleeps with me. He might get up once a night now. It works for us, my husband is downstairs on the couch or other bedroom, mostly due to his work schedule and sleeping habit (insomnia). Good luck, and maybe you could give this a try, or see your babies doctor, or yours to get something to help you sleep once you have been woken up. I once had ambien 5 mg and it worked. I was able to get to sleep, help my son when he needed me, and then go back to sleep once my head hit the pillow. I hope you sleep well soon.
