  • Maybe 5 hours ... Which is more my fault since both my kids sleep through the night now. My SO doesn't get off work until 10pm and we loose track of time before you know it it's 2am.

  • It really depends. Usually about 8, I'd say. My hubby goes to bed early (by 9p) every night and then I usually do some work before heading to bed.

    My older two kids (3 and 4) usually each wake up once per night (to go potty, get a drink, etc.)

  • I get about 6 hours now and even though I no longer have kids waking in the middle of the night I still get woke up at least once when my husband leaves for work at 4:30am. And most mornings my 3yo wakes me up at 5:30am to tell me she has to go to the bathroom. She knows how to go upstairs and use it on her own but has to inform me that she has to go every time.
    When the kids were babies I averaged about 4 1/2-5 hours of sleep a night and that was broken up into little chunks. I was sleep deprived for years.

  • I get about 5-6. My kids are 15,9,6,and five, I cant remember the last time I slept through the night...The kids don't wake me I'm just not good st sleeping. Naps on the other hand. If I get the chance to nap on the weekends I can go for 2 hours and it feels like heaven.

  • About 7-8 hours. I generally go to sleep when my son (who's 4 and has slept through the night since about 6 weeks old) does and I just get up earlier in the morning for some Me time. Sometimes I'll stay up later if I'm reading a good book, though, but it's worth the sacrifice of less sleep, or I wouldn't be reading it.

  • 7-8 but my son is up at least once a night, and I don't sleep very well now that I'm in my third trimester. I know this is as good as it'll get for a while
