What is YOUR sleep like these days? Getting any decent stretches at night? Napping during the day?

I'm not able to nap because my older daughter hasn't been napping lately. And when she does, it's usually in the car or at a time Lucy needs me.
At night, now that DH is away, I've been having to force myself to go to bed early so that I get a decent stretch of sleep in. Usually getting two to three stretches of 2-3 hrs of sleep per night. When DH was here, he'd take a night feeding which would allow me a 4-6 hr stretch of sleep, boy do I miss that

Hope is now sleeping anywhere from 6-8 hours a night these days, It sure is nice and seems to becoming a habit for her so I am excited. Her longest strech was 9:30 to 5:30 two nights in a row. She sleeps most of the day too, so it's amazes me. I guess she just needs more sleep then my other babies did. Sometimes I worry something is wrong, but I should just enjoy it because it will end.

I've never taken naps because I have 2 others at home that need my attention.

We have had 3 nights in a row of full nights sleep. Two 9:30-5 and last night 10-6:45. I don't want to get my hopes up, but I don't want it to change!

Usually we get minimum 4 hours since DH and I take shifts at night but we average 5-6 hours a night at least. She's been a pretty good sleeper but we also keep her up as much as possible between 6-9 to make it happen. Unfortunately I have low iron so I'm always feeling tired and too much I think, I feel so guilty because she does sleep so well but I'm getting on meds for that so hopefully ill perk up!

This past week Ember has been sleeping 6-8 hours and taking two naps that are 2-3 hours long. Her other naps are just dozes here and there. I haven't really needed a nap since Ember sleeps so well at night, so I get some house work done or relax and watch some Tv.

Never more than 2 hrs at a time...it's rough. My DS wasn't like this

About 3-3.5 hours per stretch

Thanks *Kiliki* for my amazingly perfect siggy!

Ugh. Well, last night he slept from 11-2am, but then he was up at 4am and fussy for the rest of the night. He'd sleep a few minutes, then cry and wake up, etc. Almost every night is like this. I basically get one decent stretch from 11-ish to 3-ish (but this past week he's been adding in a 1am waking too) and then from 3-8am he just dozes and tosses and turns and cries and fusses.

I'm pretty tired. And I hate napping so I almost never do it.

Usually Dex does 1 3-4 hour stretch, after that he does 30 minute - 1.5 hour stretches. If I don't go to bed when he does I'm exhausted. But I am able to breastfeed exclusively during the night so it is worth it! During the days I have to supplement approx 8 oz of formula

Thanks Vicki for my always awesome siggy!

We've settled into our routine pretty well now. He averages about 7-8 hours a night. I'm almost afraid... waiting for the other shoe to drop if you know what I mean. DD was not like this at all which is why I'm so skeptical. Even on days where he naps alot during the day and I'm thinking, "Oh dear- he's gonna be up all night," he surprises me and sleeps all the way thru.

Now if only I would make myself go to bed after I put him in his crib instead of messing round on the computer! I wind up averaging only 6 hours.

He may be a fussy butt sometimes during the day, but at least he's letting us get enough rest to deal with him

Between 6 and 8 in total. I can't manage to sleep in past my normal 730 wake up. Usually my hunger i DC what wakes me and i thought that was a pregnancy thing. Im wondering how things will change when i go back to work in 2 weeks.
