  • We have 4 at home, 9,5,4,& 7 months -- I work 3rd shift at a 911 center. I go in at 10 pm & work till 8 am. I go home, sleep for a few hours, around 11 or so & then I am up again. To me it is more important to spend time with my family then to sleep. On my days off I sleep when they sleep. I know is is hard to do on your own, because I was a single mom for almost 6 years, but hang in there -- it really does get easier! Don't be afraid to ask for help -- have someone watch them while you sleep and when you get up, spend every minute with them that u can! Good luck!
