Not when the kids were little unless my husband was on kid duty.

I do do things like, no caffeine after 12 noon, exercise, sleep hygiene.

This.  ONE Tylenol PM would not put me that far under but I was still groggy as hell so I only took it in sheer desperation.

 I took melatonin and it worked for me.  Sometimes when I took an otc sleep aid  (unisom, simply sleep, etc) I would be so knocked out that I would wake up right away when the baby cried (luckily my dh would hear her).  OTC sleep aids are not suppose to be taken long term either.  Melatonin is all natural and ok for long term use (at least that's what my neurologist told me).  When I woke up in morning I was not groggy with melatonin either.  The downside is that it can make you have strange dreams and I've heard a couple people say that it gives them a headache.  I would try melatonin.  Start with a small dose (1 or 2 mg) and see how it effects you.  You can find it at any grocery store or drug store next to the vitamin supplements.
