Sitter seriously. You need sleep. The vast majority of night shift mamas I know have a sitter or their kids go to daycare/school during the day so they can sleep. I knew a couple that did it without but it is very, very taxing on you and not to mention dangerous to your patients if you are trying to function off of a couple hours of broken sleep. Night shift is hard on your body anyway, please don't make it worse by trying to sleep while caring for the kids.
