  • Studies have shown that too much sleep can be a bad thing. Get up when your daughter gets up and stay up. Do all your errands, housework, etc in the morning, that way you can have the afternoon to rest and relax, and maybe take a short nap in the early afternoon if you need too.

  • Why do you need to sleep then? Are you doing things at night that you cannot sleep then? I do my school work a lot of times at night.

  • if you workout you would be more tired. idk if you do already but that worked for me, also do you work (chores, errands) b4 you sleep so you dont lay awake thinking about it. how much sleep do you get at night, if you get 8 hrs you really physically (most people) dont need more, are you sure you arent putting things off till the weekend to distract you from other stresses involved with you dd?
