How do you deal with it? I am so freaking tired I have had a stomach ache and headache for 3 weeks now ever since my 6mos. old started daycare. He wakes up every 45 minutes or so all night every single night. Plus, my 2 y.o. wakes up once or twice/night.

I can't let my kids cry it out but I simply cannot function like this anymore. Someone please tell me it gets better or at least that I"m not dysfunctional for letting my baby do this. He needs me and I can't imagine putting him away from me.

Sounds like maybe your littlest is "reverse cycling," nursing a lot at night to make up for being gone from you during the day? You might peek down into the BF forums and do a search, maybe post for more info on that.

In the meantime, though, you're not nuts at all -- you're a wonderful, loving mama who is going through a *very* rough patch. Hang in there. It will pass!
