So here I sit nursing a baby. I just got off work and I won't have any child care this week. I have to work again tonight so I won't get a chance to sleep until tomorrow afternoon. I won't sleep Thursday or Friday either. By Saturday I'm going to be a walking zombie. At least I'm on vacation next week. My maximum time up without sleep is 4 days.

What's the longest you've had to stay up with no more than cat naps?

That sounds really unhealthy. I'm a mess if I don't get 8 hours every night.

4 months! Lol! From the time my girls were born and home from the hospital (2 months when there had their jailbreak from the NICU) until they we 6 months they were on a three hour feeding schedule and took about an hour to eat each! By the time I finished feeding them, it was time to start over!

I'm definitely not doing it for my health. Sometimes I don't get 8hrs in 2-3 days. Then I sleep like 15 hrs and do it all over again. I really need a change. It just doesn't seem to be in the cards for me though.

 Holy crap. I hope you don't work somewhere that you really need to be awake (doctor, etc...) lol

My 4 day stint was no naps. Since then I've done plenty of 2-3 days no sleep. At least twice a week I'm up for 24 hrs straight.

If I'm lucky the kids will all nap at the same time. But I highly doubt it.

Nobody's in danger. Except me. I just work in a factory. 12hr shifts.
