How many hours of sleep do you average?

How many hours of sleep do you average in a 24 hours period? I am at 4-5 and my LO is 3 weeks. Wondering how many others are getting by on this little sleep?

Re: How many hours of sleep do you average?

  • It's still very inconsistent.  Some nights I average 4 to 5, others 5 to 6. Last night I got 2.

  • My LO is 4 weeks today, and I am averaging 4-5 hours of sleep at night, as well.  I think that's pretty normal for this point, unfortunately!  I am terrible about napping during the day because I am always trying to get things done around the house. DH told me this morning that he doesn't care if I have anything made for dinner tonight and that I just need to make sure I take a nap today!  Of course, LO is napping right now and I am busy doing other things!
     
  • I have been lucky. DS is sleeping 6 to 7 hrs a night waking for only one feeding so thats when I sleep with an occasional afternoon nap. But last night for the first time he was up all night. I fed him four times and think he is entering his 3 week growth spurt.
    Now I'm hoping he sleeps today but not enough to ruin sleep tonight!

  • I usually go to bed after the evening feeding around 9, then he wakes between 12 and 2 to eat and then goes back to sleep until between 5 and 7. I get a lot of sleep actually, luckily otherwise I'd be a Zombie and a horrible mom to my other kids.

  • I'm guessing 6 or 7 hours overnight and a 1 hr nap about half the time.

  • My LO is 4 weeks today & she wakes up every 3 hours at night to eat.  Once in awhile I will get lucky & she sleeps for 4 hours, but she is pretty consistent at this point.  She only sleeps about 4 hours total during the day & it's mostly little cat naps.

  • I get about 5 hours of sleep at night, broken up by feedings and diaper changes, and nap for about an hour in the afternoon. I should go to bed earlier because my son is usually sleeping between around 8pm-10pm, but I'd rather watch TV with my husband. It's enough sleep to basically function, but I couldn't imagine if I had to go to work or take care of other kids!
  • My baby is 8 days and I'm getting about 6 hours of sleep in a 24 hour period.

  • My daughter is 6 weeks and I'm averaging 4-5. There was one night last week where she slept 6 hours straight but it hasn't happened again.

  • I am lucky when it comes to sleep. I average around 8 to 9 hours of sleep at night. We bring LO to bed around 9:30pm, she usually wakes up to eat once or twice during the night usually around 12:30 and 4 or if she only wakes up once, it is usually around 3 then sleeps until at least 7:30am.

    It's pretty inconsistent still. 2 nights ago, I got 3 total, broken up. Last night, I got a 4 hour stretch, plus another 1.5. That's the most I've had in a while. LO is 17 days old. If I had to guess an average, I'd say 5 broken up over the 24 hours.
  • I sleep about 6-8 hours in a given 24-hr period. 5-6 at night and 1-2 during the day if I feel like napping. I never get more than 3 hours at a time though, which is starting to wear on me.

  • I'd say around 5 at night. All broken up. Often not more than an hour at a time. Then I sometimes get an hour or so nap.

  • I usually get a 4 hr stretch followed by a 2 hr stretch each night. Then perhaps another hr broken up in 15 min increments

    this exactly, I should go to bed earlier when he has his 4 hour stretch from 8 to midnight, but that is great alone time with my DH so I normally stay up to 11 or so.

  • I'm averaging 5-6 hours. I feel spoiled on those nights closer to 6.

    I'm not a daytime napper, so the whole, "sleep when he sleeps," advice doesn't help me accrue more hours of sleep. I have to hope for the best each night.

    This sounds about right.  I usually get one nap during the day and my H lets me sleep from about 1:00 or 2:00 to 6:00 or 7:00 a.m.  Then I let him sleep until 11:00 when he gets up to go to work.

  • Most nights I get 6-7 overnight. The last two nights she has woken up for a 2am and 4am nursing when she usually goes 11pm to 4am. So that has cut out an hour, and I'm hoping she goes back to her long sleep stretch.

  • It varies but Id say about 5 hours broken up. It usually takes me a little over an hour to feed, burp, change her etc. So by the time I get back to bed and fall asleep I only get about 2 hours of sleep before she's up again. She is 3 weeks today.

  • 8 or 9 hours, depends on when my toddler wakes up. We bedshare and sidelying nursing which I sleep through so I am getting a lot of sleep but it isn't really deep sleep because of the bed sharing. I definetly don't feel well rested in the morning.

  • DS is 5 weeks tomorrow and lately I'm averaging 5 to 6 hours of sleep in 24 hours, 3 to 4 at night with one long nap in the afternoon when DH gets home from work.

  • Let's see...S is a a little over 5 weeks old and we probably get about 5-6 hours of sleep a night? I was never a good napper so I vary rarely nap during the day. We usually put S down to bed between 9 and 10, and I usually get to bed between 10:30 and 11. She gets up between 1 and 2, and then again between 4 and 6 before she gets up for the day between 7 and 8. That sounds like a lot of sleep but each feeding takes about an hour or so and by the time I do get back to bed and then fall alseep, I've probably been awake for an hour and half maybe?

    this sounds basically exactly like my LO. I feel pretty lucky! 

    ETA she is 6 weeks today

  • 4-5 hrs in a 24 hour period. It seems I make children who are on the low spectrum of sleep needs, especially daytime nap-wise.

    On Monday, I got 1.5 hours of sleep during the night. All told, it took me 15 hours to accrue four very broken hours of sleep that day. It was pretty crappy.
