    I don't have an issue falling asleep...that usually happens around 8pm! However I wake up at 1 or 2 am and can't get back to sleep...finally after an hour or 2 I fall back asleep...but this is new for me!!! Never experienced this with my other kids. Anyone else?!

    So glad it's not just me -- sick of waking up and looking at the clock, only to discover it's 5:30am :-/ Zzz...

    Yes this is happening to me too and it didn't happen with dd#1. I will usually feel sooooo sleepy the night before and conk out, but then wake up in the middle of the night feeling extremely awake. The worst of it is that because I'm not sleeping a full 8 hours, I feel really sleepy again in the middle of the day.

    Its your body preparing for night feeds and early rises!! Well I like to think of it that way to keep myself sane. I got up at 5 this morning starving, its now midday and I am on the sofa with a blanket feeling like I drank 5 bottles of wine!! This past 11 weeks really have been like one constant hangover yuck.

    I had horrible insomnia between 4 and 6 weeks, but as soon as 6 weeks hit, I was a sack of rocks come 9pm. Now I sleep 10 hours a night, easy. And still nap during the day! lol
