I would love to know this, too!
Henry would probably like to go down for the night at about 8-9, but since he can't be put down and I'm not ready for bed that early, I just hold/wear him and he nurses and naps until we go to bed at 11. Then there's more nursing, and I swaddle him, and lay him on the bed next to me. He usually falls asleep at that point (although there are some "YOU PUT ME DOWN?!?" false starts...) and I get my precious hour a day to do things without a baby on top of me. Well. So long as I stay on the bed. If I leave for more than the minute or two it takes me to pee and brush my teeth, he wakes up.
But I'm still looking forward to the hypothetical day when he goes to bed before I do and sleeps for a few hours, and I can get my life back together a little bit.
Doctors aren't out to kill you or your children. Childbirth isn't inherently safe. Science is actually smarter than your intuition. Lighten up. Use sunscreen.
