    For 6 years after having kids I was asleep by 9ish and up with them between 4.30 and 5.30am.

    Just this year they have ALL started sleeping, so most mornings now it is 7am! Still feels surreal. And I'm in bed around 10.30pm.

    Hi OP

    I think it's good your going to bed early and getting as much sleep as possible , and in the first 8 weeks your body is still adjusting so it's good your trying to get rest !

    My daughter goes to bed at 8, my son at 10, I go to bed after my daughters first feed so around 1am.

    I love that me time when it's PEACEFUL!

    We are all up at 7. In-between 1 and 7 both kids wake heaps and DD still feeds and every morning when I wake up I feel like death and swear I am going to bed early that night but never do. I need to take a leaf out of your book every now and then .

    Congratulations on your new bundle and it's great he's sleeping so well at night ! xxoo

    He does wake up for a feed in between but normally falls asleep straight after.
    He doesnt sleep 10hrs straight-i wish!)
    I think in total i prob get 7-8 hrs sleep a night although broken, still feel knackered at 6am though!

    Around 9-10pm, get up around 6-7am. I wake several times at night though so always feel tired.

    My best solid sleep is always between 9 and 12 and then it is interrupted, usually hourly, until we are up between 5 and 6 am.
    The earlier I go to bed, the longer my block of solid sleep is so I'm happy to go to bed early to feel slightly human the next day

    Thats why i go to bed early too! The first block is always best.
    Although feel a bit bad cos i only spend like an hour or two with OH before going to sleep.

    Hopefully for you it won't always be like that though, once you LO's feeds spread out a bit further you will get longer blocks of sleep.

    It has been pretty crappy for us because we have terrible sleepers but I just stayed up later a couple of times a week so we could spend a little time together.

    DH is a chef and until a week ago was working til about 9.30-10pm so we wouldn't see each other much at all, now he starts at 6am and is home at 2.30pm so understands how much it sucks getting up early every day if you dont get enough sleep and is a little more understanding.
