Sleep deprived mommy

I need sleep!!!

I know every child is different and you aren't supposed to compare yours with other people's babies, but when I hear about someone's 8 week old who is sleeping through the night, I am jealous (and a little annoyed). It's going on 8 MONTHS and I have yet to have a full night's sleep. Sofia still wakes up at least twice an night, sometimes more, to eat. I have tried everything aside from letting her cry it out (even if I could handle it, I know daddy couldn't). Last night she ate at 11:30, 4:00 and 5:30. The night before it was midnight, 2:30 and 7:00 (and then slept in until 9, but I'm so used to her getting up for the day at 7 that I couldn't sleep in. Figures). How is it that she can go 4-6 hours sometimes and only 1.5 hour other times?

I'm so frustrated and tired and now I have a head cold on top of it all. I don't want to complain but I just need to get it out of my system.

Doesn't someone have the magic solution? Anyone?
