Dawn's blog. Must give credit where credit is due. :) Sleep is a big issue in my life right now, so I could not pass up doing this survey.I found this on my great blogging friend
1. How long do you sleep each night?
Currently, I average about 6 hours, although not 6 hours straight. It is constantly interrupted due to a super cute little 13 month old who still cannot figure out how to sleep through the night. Ack!
2. Do you fall asleep easily?
I usually do, but only because I'm so freakin' tired all the time. I have been tired for the past 15 months.
3. Do you fall asleep at times not in your bed?
Um, not currently. I sleep in my bed because I'm currently (ahem) co-sleeping with my little guy. My goal for May is to get him sleeping consistently in his crib. (wish me luck on that one).
4. Do you listen to music or use “white noise” to sleep?
I never used to, but this past winter we used a space heater and initially I thought it was really noisy, but I've grown to LOVE the 'white noise' as it drowns out all the other noise, like when O is up getting ready in the morning. I will miss that 'white noise' but I really don't want to buy a 'white noise' machine...seems silly to me.
5. Do you sleep through the night or get up a couple of times?
I'm up usually @ least 3 times during the night these days. If it's a good night, I'm only up 1-2 times. I haven't slept through the night for at least 15-16 months now. Not one single night. Yawn!
6. Do you have trouble sleeping away from your own bed?
I think these days I could sleep just about anywhere.
7. Do you need an alarm clock to get you up?
Unfortunately not. I usually wake up before I need to or O wakes me up before he leaves in the morning.
8. Do you ever take medication to help you sleep?
I don't currently, but I have taken Tylenol PM in the past.
9. Do you/have you slept with pets?
Occassionally, Milo & Hula will sleep @ the foot of the bed, but typically they are locked out of the bedroom because they sometimes decide to start 'meowing' in the middle of the night, which wakes up the little guy and that makes mommy very mad.
