How many hours of sleep are you getting with your newborn? I think I sleep about 5 hours every night, broken up in small naps..

  • With 4 children ages range from 1 yr to 9 yrs, I get about 5 hours a sleep a day. Most of the time not all at once either.

  • That's quite generous :)

    We cosleep so it helped a lot. We sidecarred a crib for more room. We get far more sleep than those who don't.
