    Good sleeper. I have little to no patience at night time- 5 min of awake time and I'm looking for the nurofen! I'd probably resort to long walks in the pram if I had to during the day.

    My second started sleeping through at around 6 weeks, trade off was a couple of 30 min blocks and hours of sookyness. Was good to begin with but then I really wasn't getting that much sleep because I was up until 12-1 cleaning most days.

    now she won't sleep at all and it's sh*t house

    my first slept during the day but not at night.

    i think I prefer a night sleeper, at least I'm not cranky, and who cares if the house work gets left for a few days

    Definitely a night sleeper!! I find it much easier to cope with day time craziness after a decent night sleep.

    I think it depends on the type of person you are. If you can get a good nights sleep, then coping with a full-on attention demander during the day would be easier. However, if you don't sleep properly at night anyway, what difference does it make devoting some of your nighttime wakefulness to a baby.

    I would probably cope better with the latter, because I can function of minimal sleep (before the age of 30, I slept only 4 hours a night). But I think the former would be much better for the child, so I'll pick that option instead.

    DD1 was the extreme of the latter - and it was a little too much to cope for. As a newborn, she was happy and content and just wanted to be talked to and played will all day (and night). She breastfed every hour on the hour (except for 2am and 3am) so 22 feeds a day. She slept from 1:30am-3:30am only, and had no naps other than that.

    At the time, I thought she was an easy baby - but in hindsight realise it would be nigh on impossible with a toddler as well. Also, two hours sleep a night wasn't enough for me, and After about a month I remember putting her on the rug on the floor so that I could lie down on the couch to cry - and she whinged 'cause I wasn't paying attention to her. But I would get through the emotional break, and then resume as her next feed became due.
