  • Sleep when baby sleeps, don't clean something or watch something just sleep when ever that little cutie closes it's eyes sleep. Best advise ever!

  • Exactly what pinkparcel said. Your ONLY job is to care for the baby, nothing else. That's how you get any sleep at all.

  • Congratulations ! At lest at home, nobody will come to take your BP or your temp when your LO just got back to sleep ! :)

    Sleep whenever you're baby is sleeping ! Housework, cooking, laundry, anything can wait a few hours/days/weeks !

  • I use to sleep when my babies slept. Cleaned when they were awake. If I cleaned at all.
