Having an older DD, you may remember that a 1 y.o. is FAR harder (IME, esp. at night) than an older child. I remember waiting for my DD to turn 1 year since, hahaaha, I thought I'd get seep. WRONG. It was so hard and I was so tired. You know it won't be forever, but it sure feels like it.
Exhaustion is a very real thing. Sleep deprivation is used for torture, isn't it? I've heard you can die faster from lack of sleep than lack of food, so don't minimize your problem!
No advice other than to accept all offers of help.
