Sleep deprivation

How do you deal with sleep deprivation .. While baby is growing up once in a while not getting enough sleep is a part and parcel of motherhood. I keep myself hydrated , don't think too much about how tired I am , try and get naps as much as I can. Also avoid being snappy at others cause it's not fair.

    Coffee. Lots of coffee. Lots and lots of coffee. :)

      I agree with the rest and then there are some days we just buck up and deal with it and let those around us know we are grumpy - at least that is what I do!

      Theresa has a point. I've gotten up, made breakfast, then laid down on the couch some morning. If hubby is home he'll try to keep the kids away. If he isn't I make sure they have food, clean underwear and something to drink and they are good at letting me rest unless they need me. Half the time they'll cuddle and go back to sleep, too.
