Hi LH86, Congratulations on your new job! I worked a few night shifts when I was pregnant with my second and found having a cat nap during my break,really helped as well as having some energy packed snacks for when I felt i was flagging. During the day, try breaking your sleep pattern, as i found sleeping for one long period left me even more tired! hope this helps and good luck!

Hi LH86 the change in routine is definitely a major change to the biological system an d requires lots of time to adjust with. I am sure you are finding the routine great now that you are used to it. The key advice I could give having worked nights with children home during the day needing attention is that if you can really block out sunlight from your bedroom windows that would be ideal so that everything in your control can be done to prevent sleep loss. Please do share how you have been managing!!!!!
