Sleep Problems (a bit long, sorry!)

I don't know if I'm on the right board for this but here goes. My 12 month old DS (I take it that means son?) is being a right pain in the proverbial about sleeping. He's never been very good. I can't remember the last time he slept through the night. He's still in a cot in our bedroom because our room is downstairs and the nursery is upstairs and neither myself nor my husband can face marching up and down in the middle of the night. I haven't got a great routine going with him, which is entirely my fault! My husband works varying shifts so that doesn't help either. I try to get him bathed between 7 and 8pm and then into bed around 9pm but this varies a lot! He naps maybe once during the afternoon for about an hour. Without fail, he wakes up in the night at least once, sometimes twice. I give him a drink and he goes back to sleep but the time this takes varies too. He finds it really difficult to fall asleep by himself. Sometimes his dummy works, sometimes he comes in our bed (big mistake I know!) I breastfed him to start and that was the easiest way and it just stuck! I'm now 5 1/2 months pregnant again and panicking. If I don't start to get some sleep before the next is born I think I might go mad. Has anyone gone through this? What did you do?
