    How many hours of sleep do you get a night?

    How many would you like to get? You know, whats ideal?

    I get around 5 hours a night then I get to take a 2 hour nap at noon ( I have a 2 year old).

    I would love to get 7 a night then skip the nap.

    I would love 8 hours, generally get about 5 if I am lucky.... when I can't sleep I am on here!.... never nap in the afternoon if I did I would not be able to sleep at night.....

    I don't have good sleep patterns, I never have. I have trouble falling asleep most of the time and then I don't sleep soundly. Even if I do sleep pretty hard I'm still awake at the same time. If I did the mean hours of sleep per week per night it would come out around 4.

    I get around 7 per night. Not uninterruped though. I dream vividly and it wakes me a lot.

    I TRY not to go to sleep when I lay my son down but sometimes I feel like Mommy should be an example. [​IMG]

    I read somewhere that seven hours is the optimum amount of sleep. Too much or too little shortens your lifespan.

    I average 6-7 hours a night. Most of the time if I sleep 7 I wake up just an't seem to sleep later.

    idk exactly how much I get to sleep... I wake up off and on all night... i will guess maybe 5 hours and no naps during the day... I would love at least 1 night with 12 hours uninterupted sleep...

    7-8 hours - I make an effort to get good sleep or I drag the next day

    I seem to be avereging about 4 right now and its killing me.. Used to be able to nap or sleep in on my days off but my kids dont let that happen often , it did make a huge difference if i could catch up once in a while..
