how many hours of sleep do u get at night? do u like to sleep during the day?

I usually get 7 hrs of sleep at night not any less than that because I don't function the following day, and I don't like sleeping during the day because when I do I wake up all shaky and even more tired.

  • I don't sleep at night. I work third shift so am up while everyone else is in bed. Even on my days off its hard for me to go back to a normal schedule. I sleep anywhere between 5-8 hours each day. I don't feel like I can function on less than 8, however it never fails someone calls or stops by when I'm sleeping thinking it will be ok.

  • tonight, I am going to get about 5 hours, maybe six, I usually get 6-7, and on a REALLY lucky night I get 8. I only nap during the day when I am really really sick.

  • I get anywhere from 0 to like 10 hours, depending on how long I've been up. My usual system (I have SEVERE insomnia) is being up for 1.5-3 days straight, then sleeping from 2-10 hours, if I can sleep that long. Usually when I'm in bed for like 10 or 11 hours, I'm actually awake for at least half of that time. It sucks, but I don't function on much more sleep than like 4 or 5 hours. If I get like 8 or 9 hours of sleep, I feel like shit, but if I get none or just a couple of hours I feel fine.

  • I'm not even sure how many hours of sleep I get. I go to bed around 11 pm and get up around 6:30 or 7:00 am. Between then I am running into my son's room 2-6 times depending on if he's teething or not. The visits to his room last between 1 minute to 2 hours.

    I nap either in the morning with him or in the afternoon with him. If I didn't, I'd likely go nuts in the middle of the night when I have to wake up for the 5th time!

  • Between 6 to 8 hours.
    I do not like to sleep during the day.

  • I usually get about 6, cause I have a baby who is going to be one soon, I can function, I dont take naps- I do housework when he is asleep napping. Sometimes he still wakes up- so it may not be 6 hrs. straight, but 6 total for the night.

  • I go to bed at 9pm...The kicker is that I have to get up every 2.5 hours to put formula in my son's feeding bag...So there is no telling how much sleep I do actually get....I know that I do not ever get more than 2.5 hours of sleep at a time......I do sometimes take a nap during the day...I have an in home nurse 20 hours a week to give me a break so I usually take a nap for an hour or two while she is here....It is tough but I manage .......I am always tired it has just become a way of life!
