    I usually get 8 or 9. Anything less than 6 and I'm grumpy (and it's usually my own fault for being on here for too long...)

    I get 5-8. I'm pretty luck DD sleeps 7-5 or 6. The only reason I get crappy sleep is because I'm usually a night owl

    So it's self inflicted.

    I try to aim for 8, although some nights am woken by DS who has had an accident or needs a drink. He's great now considering he woke me several times up until past age 4 yo. He was the worst sleeper as a baby, I was lucky if he'd sleep for 40 minutes at a time.

    I don't think I'll be able to handle another one. The sleep deprivation was depressing and my DS has been an early riser since day one, I can't be up all night with a baby and then up the second the sun rises to get DS ready for school etc. I don't know how those with more than one do it actually!!

    Usually 5-6 hours a night, mainly due to shift work. Even if I haven't been at work, I find it really hard to get to sleep early, it's normally around 1am.

    Not enough....my twins are 14mths and I think since they were born I have had a few 4 hour blocks, but each of them still wake 2-3 times a night. I stopped adding up how much sleep I'm actually getting, as it doesn't change anything and I got more distressed and worried about it, which then made sleep more elusive. I just accept the sleep deprivation, trust that it won't be like this forever, and get some sleep at every opportunity.

    Usually around 6-8 broken hours. DS3 still wakes for a bottle in the early morning. Last night DHs snoring had me awake though .

    Generally about 7hrs broken. DD goes down about 8, wakes for 3 feeds then our day starts about 5.30. For a new mummy, I don't complain
