We just found a new normal...and then, just as it was starting to become "normal," something else would come along and disrupt it again. So all that to say that maybe it never really ends? Sorry, I know that probably isn't what you wanted to hear...
Loving life with DH DS1 (5/7/09) and DS2 (7/23/11)
I don't want to be a downer by my DS is 9.5 months and I'm still looking for the light. Let me know if you catch a glimpse Sorry, I know that's not helpful.
Only my guy's 8 mos. He used to give me a 5-6 hr stretch every night, and now I'm lucky if I get 90 minutes.

2012 Decluttering challenge - 575/2012
For Vivi, it only lasted 2 weeks, from 3.75 months to 4.25 months. My baby, who had previously slept in lovely 6-8 hour chunks since birth, went to waking up at a full scream at nurse 4-6 times a night. It was awful.
After those two weeks passed, though, she went right back to nursing at 9p, 12a, and 4-7am. And she wakes up chatting or "singing," which is a MUCH nicer way to be woken up!
So don't convince yourself that it'll be this way for ages- a quick bounce-back may be in order!
Doctors aren't out to kill you or your children. Childbirth isn't inherently safe. Science is actually smarter than your intuition. Lighten up. Use sunscreen.
I went crazy at 4 months. And I was crazy for about 2 whole months before I accepted that the sleep regression wasn't going to be temporary.
IME, it gets a little better, then a little worse, then a little better. Right now, we're in a good phase, but I try not to hope too much.
