Falling apart with 11 month old sleep

Ok, so he’s never actually been a sleeper.
But? When it’s down to waking everyone 30-45 minutes screaming for the breast I am physically and mentally drained. I dread bedtime every night!
He sleep for about 1hr when he first goes down, then he cried and needs my breast to go back to sleep.
By the time I’m in bed going to sleep, I end up putting him into bed with me because I’m so exhausted.
He then starts waking every 30-45 minutes taking the dummy out of his mouth and then crying. He then fights me so I don’t put the dummy in because he wants the breast.
He’s got 4 top teeth coming, so I’m not sure if it’s that. We’ve tried paracetamol and teething gel..
Any advice or any tired mamas out there?!!

No advice, only sympathy.

My five month old also wakes every 45 mins and has always done this 😴😴

So tiring isn’t it.
I’m completely fine during the day, once I’ve had my coffee I’m good to go haha!
They’ll sleep longer at some point! (That’s what I have to tell myself grin )
