  • depends on the age. You should be sleeping when they are new born. as they grow you should find time for you. If you get things done that is nice but early on you just have to be ok with no much getting done. And it is better to get a break and be ready when your baby wakes up then to get things done when they are real young. as they grow you can get things done while they are awake. You can fold the laundry and interact with you baby. Or play with them for a while and then let them play on their own while you get one or two things done.

  • I used to do chores when she slept. BIG mistake. I ended up hallucinating from fatigue. I'd go days with about 2 hours of sleep collectively per day. (My DD had colic, so she rarely slept and if she did, it was never for long). I'd say, its completely up to you but just keep in mind that a happy mom equals a happy baby. Baby's needs come first

  • Do ONLY that which MUST be done so no one dies. Then go to sleep.

  • every day is different. Play it by ear. When your sleepy, go to sleep. other wise you may get cranky. If your baby sleeps two hours clean for an hour, than sleep the other hour. As baby gets older, you may have more engery. I sometimes like to do what I want while my two kids sleep.
