    These are all good tips for encouraging your own better sleep. This jumped out at me, however, regarding the husband in this marriage: “I often send him to bed early to get in 4-5 hours before he has to take over baby duty. Or, I give him an hour or two on a Saturday afternoon”…she sounds like the mom or the manager. There is no way that my husband would accept being sent to bed early or given nap time by me.

    You know, I’m a work at home mom of seven… I feel lucky to get a solid six hours. If I get more than that, I have a severe headache in the morning. I used to have to get 10 solid hours before I could function.

    Good list! I just wanted to speak up about the cutting caffeine suggestion. For years, I thought it made no difference because I could drink a huge Coke and fall asleep right away. I didn’t realize how much the caffeine affected my sleep in other ways — making me more likely to wake up or to have difficulty returning to sleep if I did. I don’t stop the caffeine by noon (at least not yet), but I finish all my caffeine by 5:00 and it’s really helped. Great tip!

    Something new that I have tried over the last month or so that has really helped me get better sleep is to search Youtube on my iPhone for “guided meditation”. I’ll leave my iPhone next to me and I usually fall asleep after about 10 minutes of listening to the video.
