For those who have hubbies that work nights how long do they sleep during the day. I tend to think 8 hours enough. In reality I would love for him to be able to sleep as long as he wants to but if he did that he would be asleep the whole time that he is home. How does your family work it? Do you wake him up after a certain amount of time?

he slept more than 8 hours i think that 3rd shift really confuses you body and sleep schedule. he would sleep until 2 hours before work and that's why he found a different job he missed spending time with me and the kids.

Right now my husband works 12 hour shifts during the night. Their shifts change every 6 weeks. I only wake him up either when he asks me to wake him at a certain time or someone calls for him. Today for example, he doesn't work tonight so he wants to get up at 2pm (after 5 hours of sleep) so that he can enjoy some daylight and grill out. It's hard but we make it work. How many days off a week does your husband get?

I worked the overnight for 10 years. It was so hard. I would generally average 5 hours of sleep. I would have loved 8 hours, but I rarely was able to stay asleep for any longer than 5 hours.
