I just had coffee with an old friend who I used to work with and she is a peds dietitian and so she has lots of mom friends and we decided that when you are in these baby/toddler years that most moms just get used to 3-5 hours of sleep a night. If you are getting more than that you are lucky. You might get more if you just have 1 kid but most of the mom's I know average 5-6 hours once their kid is a couple years old but then they usually get pregnant again and then it starts all over.

I get more but that is because I have to lay down with LO or he will not sleep and he needs 10 hours. If I had the choice I would stay up and shower, clean and see my DH so I too would prolly be getting only 6 hours.

It sounds bad and I think that is why people don't talk about it but you will get used to it.

If your baby sleeps well, you are lucky. It is not the norm.
