I've loved the working mothers thread! But there's lots of different issues going on, so I thought I'd start a new thread to ask about working mothers and sleep. My dd is 12 months and getting her molars. When I returned to work (dd was 7 weeks), dd went from sleeping 5-6 hours at night to 1-2 hours. But now with the teething, it has gotten unbearable. I'm on my second night in a row with less than three hours of sleep and having to go to work the next day! How do other WOHMs do it? I am usually up with dd at night, but lately have been asking dh (who is basically a SAHD right now while work is slow) to take on more nighttime child care, but I can still hear dd cry so I am awake anyway. All the articles I read say "Nap when your baby naps." That's just not helpful for a WOHM. Any suggestions?
