    Before DS2 8-9 hours of broken sleep. I've always struggled with sleep issues. Now DS2 is sleeping 'reasonably' (solely by comparison to the first 2.5 years of his life) I get 5-6 hours broken sleep.

    Common theme here. Before DD I 'needed' 8-10 hours a night to feel refreshed and ready to function for the day. Last night the longest stretch I had was 2.5 hours and maybe 7hrs of very broken sleep. Right now I'd kill for a 5hr stretch and to regularly get a total of 7-8hrs.
    I think if sleep is not broken then I could probably get by well on 6-7 hours now.

    I need to apply more self discipline. I have always been a night owl but also needed ny sleep. It was usually 10 hours a day before kids. I ended up with children who are usually up between 530 and 6am meaning very little sleep. Plus they usually wake at night so generally 5 hours of broken sleep. Last night it was 3😴😴😴I know without a doubt I would be a better mum and wife if I got more sleep.

    I work nights so when I am home during the day I get anything between 2.5 to 4hrs depending on what I have to do during the day. I am struggling off this much currently and can barely function but I do what I have to do with being a single parent and working hours that suit us as a family better. If I had someone who do school drop off and pick up for me, I could be sleeping a lot better.

    I would kill for a good 6-8hrs of unbroken sleep.

    Default how many hours sleep do you get?

    Pre kids 8 hours.
    Now I feel like a champion if I get a 4-6 block. I would kill to have that again.

    Oh and I need a nap everyday. I've napped since I started highschool. Trait of being an early bird (up at 5-6)

    With doing my study at night i get to bed 12/12.30 at night and up at 6am with the toddler who is currently losing his day sleep and if he has a rough night i am often up with him or dh is.
    It took me a few weeks to adjust to about 5/6hrs sleep but now i cant go to sleep before 11pm even if i give myself the night off

    I have always needed lots of sleep! I currently get about 8-9 hours, which is great. I coped okay with alot less than that when my kids were younger, but now they are sleeping better my body has reverted to it's "I can't function on less than 8 hours sleep" default
