In brief: Sleep like your baby
Once your joyous bundle arrives, sleep suddenly becomes a hot commodity.
Only getting 2-3 hours of shut eye at a time can be quite a shock to your system. Just remember this: it won't last forever and you will get more sleep with each passing month. Take these midnight nursing and feeding sessions for what they are, intimate bonding time for you and your baby. Also? Sleep when the baby sleeps.

In brief: Sleep when he sleeps
Oh, it's so hard! but a good rule of thumb is try to sleep when the baby is sleeping and use others to help out around the house so you can try to catch up on your rest.
It is so important for you to stay as well-rested as possible. Don't feel too frustrated if you feel chronically sleep deprived. It will be a feeling you have for a while, but things will get better with time.

In brief: Rest often!
It is very difficult to get enough sleep with a newborn- how can you, they want to feed every 2-3 hours! because you need to stay healthy for your baby you should try to rest when your baby is sleeping (and this means naps during the day).
Put aside the laundry, house cleaning, and cooking and try to nap when your baby is napping during the day. This will make those 3am feedings a bit easier.
