Now I get enough- usually. However they didn't really start sleeping through the night until they were about 11 months. I started a bad habit w/ Maya when I went back to work when they were 5 months. She would wake, I would go and get her and bring her to bed so I could get sleep. Well, I don't sleep great when they are in bed w/ me.
Sometimes they will wake, but usually go right back to sleep. But honestly I got very little sleep for almost the entire first year. And the first few months? Forget it!! It was bad for me b.c I NEED my sleep.
The first few months were horrible. I think I got about 40 min to 3 hours tops a night. ::shudders:: SO GLAD I lived through that!
Now the girls are 6 months old (tomorrow) and go to bed at 8 and wake at 630-730. I usually don't make it to bed until 11 though. So I get 7 1/2 to 8 1/2 hours a night. However: We are starting teething, and I have random nights where one will just start crying really loud for no reason. :: I have to run in there and pat bottoms or whatever to try and get them back asleep before they wake the other one... I hope this phase doesn't last long...I'm not a fan of retrogressing!!
Big Thank you to AlexKatieAiden Mommy for my beautiful Siggy!!
Ohhhh.....the first six weeks were awful!! 30min of sleep was amazing. Now that the boys are 6mos, I go to bed around 9-9:30pm - get up probably 2-4x then up at 6:00am - so I would guess about 6-7hrs. I CAN'T wait until they STTN!!!
Jen, mom to Danika 6, and twins Owen & Rhys 3 (how did that happen!?!)
5-6 hours. The twins sleep 11-12 hours. (they're 2 1/2). They sleep at about 9pm and wake up at 8am. I wake up at 4-5am to go to work. After they sleep if I have the energy I tidy up, if not I'll nap for an hour or two then get up and do dishes.
At this moment the little ones go to bed at 730ish and wake up at 6ish.
I am so lucky they have been sttn for over a year now. We went thru a time when Zander would wake up every morning at about 4am... Thankfully he stopped doing that once we gave them toddler beds and he can play or crawl in bed with his sister.
