Child benefit not paid for 18 months!

I've just realised that payments for my 17 year old daughter stopped in September 2021. We contacted HMRC to tell them that she was staying in fulltime education and the operator told us that he'd sorted it so we didn't need to do anything else. We also get benefit for two younger children and I assumed the amount we were receiving was correct. HMRC have told us they can start a new claim but can only back date it 3 months. I'm pee'd off with myself for not noticing sooner! Is there anything I can do to get the money we are owed (over £1000). The mistake was at their end and surely there should be a log of our original conversation. Thanks
