How much sleep do you think you lost after you first become a parent?

No idea, 38, 35 and 34 years ago, but it were quiet children, slept well by etc.Don’t think it was very much.
Our eldest son sat from top to toe under the constitutional eczema, and scratched himself, so we took him to bed when he woke up for whatever reason he could solve it on the spot, less sleep deprivation, he was breastfeeding.After the loss of our second, a daughter, came our youngest, again a daughter, who first slept separately, and since she was after her birth too drowsy (was yellow, like many Asian babies) was to drink at the breast she got bottles of food with a big hole in the nipple , the bottles were ready in the fridge, when needed a bottle in the microwave was warmed up, and after that I went to sleep again, was accustomed to waking up, going to work, and going to sleep again, came out well. When she was a year old she got chickenpox, then also wanted to sleep with us, much more easily. Son went out he was six years old to his own room, which was formerly a kind of “office” for him where all his stuff lay, daughter stayed until her 8th year with us sleeping, very cozy, I remember how fine I found it with a baby on my chest to fall asleep , the baby later slipped away from me, no problem. No danger of crushing the child: we were not obees, and not to sleep or other suffing drugs. We woke up immediately at the first touch with a child, and we slept on it consciously.

In itself it was best.My daughter slept structurally after 6 weeks of the nights. That first 6 weeks it was in the night giving food and changing. There we had a tight 25 minute rhythm for it (25 times 6 times 7 = 1050 minutes), so in total I would say 18 hours. I am fully aware of how much happiness we have had with this! Enough others who have had more trouble with it.

My son slept the first night.We thought ‘ yes though! That can’t be!? ‘
We were already prepared for the worst because this could not be?
The next morning the nurse came along.

‘ Has he already slept?Then you have a satisfied child! ‘ Whether that is true, I don’t know, but I think it’s a nice thought.

About 1.500 (about 4 hours for 1 year.) Can also be 750, or 2,500.Have not kept a log. But you feel it, Erghens deep in the LA is a picture of me and my wife on which we both look completely torn off.

It is very sensible to sacrifice sleep together for overnight exchange services (although that for breastfeeding women does not quite get into it).

Also, it is not a law of Medes and Persians, there are babies who have been asleep very quickly almost all night, and there are those who wake up crying every night after a year and a half.

My sleep pattern has been adjusted after the kids.I sleep less, but I’m better equipped than I was sometimes before I had children. This is partly because there is a fixed rhythm that the body has set itself on. This means that it is no longer in the morning to step up to 7 o’clock. In addition, I see myself no longer in the disco with 16 year olds. I have actually recovered more time and that is more valuable to me than the sleep I have handed in.

Four hours in total I think. The baby slept with us in the room.My son and I both fall asleep very easily, but I do not quite understand why that was so little.

Not a clue.It’s also been 36 years ago. But it’s insanely a lot, I still know very well.

The nights were shorter, the dreams less imaginative, but the days are amazing.Write to me for 3000 hours less sleep, measured over the past 12 years.

I was breastfeeding with my first children.That was a decent tax in terms of night-time rest. Feed the 2 or 3 hours. And then half an hour. So per night I definitely think 2 hours less. These are the first months.

Now with my youngest child, I didn’t breastfeed and I was lucky to have been asleep after 2 months.When I go to bed in the daytime because of the hustle and bustle, I do come to my 8 hours sleep.

So is the situation, the child and your own need for sleep.

At least 1 to 2 hours per night in the first months, I would say average.
