Do you Sleep Well?


Do you sleep well? I sleep well most nights – well, I do go to bed in my own big boys bed in my bedroom which I share with my big bro. I am quite good at going off to sleep – unless I have had a late afternoon nap, then I am up a bit later. Usually I go to bed at 7pm, Mummy and Lea read me a story, I have a drink of milk, and off I nod.

I do wake up in the night, between 2 – 5am and go sleepily into Mummy, where she pops me into her bed, and we both go back to sleep. The best thing about this is that in the morning when we wake up for the day, we have lots of snuggly cuddles and kisses. I LOVE feeling Mummy lying next to me, and she says she loves having me there, all suggly, too.

The worst thing, is her mattress. Now, Mummy’s bed is nice and big and has a double mattress but it is years old and is so uncomfortable. It is a memory foam mattress, but the base of Mummy’s bed is made of metal supports, and the mattress on Mummy’s side has kind of sunk into them and there is a big dip. Mummy ends up in this dip, and when I join her, I too roll into it, squashed against Mummy! So Mummy doesn’t really get a great nights sleep. I do, because I can sleep anywhere when I am tired!

Mummy is on the look out for a new mattress, and I hope she finds one soon. It is interesting to see how other people sleep isn’t it?

What do you make of these fab facts about how the people of Britain sleep?

Aren’t there some interesting statistics there? I wonder if any apply to you. I hope you sleep well tonight!

  1. Think mummy need a new bed lol.

    Very factual infographic. I would fit in with the average so can totally related. Especially the school run/sleep. I would always say I’ve never had enough sleep too when joe my partner would say he’s had enough.

  2. I think Mummy needs a new bed too! I would sleep better if my little toddler didn’t still want milk in the night, but that’s another story. We do have quite a strict bedtime routine in our house and get the children to bed by 6.30/7 it definitely makes a difference.

  3. Tell mummy to get a new mattress… lots of sleep makes so much difference!!

    I have to admit I have suffered with insomnia, especially when I’m pregnant. For my daughter she has a pretty good bedtime routine though we never stick to times as such as our lifestyle just doesn’t allow for that. But it works foe us xxx

  5. Between my 5 month old and my 2 year old, I haven’t sleep more than 3 hours straight since she was born. Those getting 8 hours and asking for more need to come spend a week at my house!!!

  6. Pretty interesting infographic. I was recently made redundant without notice so it will be interesting to see how my sleeping pattern changes. I’m guilty of using my smart phone before bed, but us bloggers never know when to switch off do we! x

  13. These are such interesting facts! My little boy is the same. He falls asleep in his own bed then comes to me partway through the night – and my mattress is knackered too!

  14. Very interesting post! I don’t have enough sleep unfortunately and that’s probably because I think I can work well without it, but that’s not true.

  15. I definitely do not get as much sleep as I should do. Its something I’m definitely going to try to work on going into the new year. xxx

  16. That was really interesting. It’s funny. My husband used to claim he suffered insomnia but hasn’t had a problem since the kids were born.

  17. Really interesting infographic! I totally agree with women feeling like they get less sleep then men 😉 x

  20. Super interesting infographic, I often wake up feeling tired despite having plenty of sleep and my sleep cycle app often says my sleep quality is good so I don’t really know how that works out! Perhaps I sleep too much? I should experiment with it I think!
