How can you get by on little sleep for long periods of time? (Especially want tips from parents of toddlers.)?

you don't. i have three sons who are under 4. i have a 9 month old, a 1 and a half year old and a 3 year old. i sleep about four thru five hours a night. And this has been since i had my second son. so if your married have the father watch them for three hours after work take two tylenol pm's and have a rest. i find this works great

If your toddler is ready and its financially feasible, enroll him/her into a preschool. There are a lot of programs who have 1-2 hr classes. Wile your child is there, go home, turn your brain off (don't lie there & think about the housework that needs done etc.) and take a deserved and needed nap!
Remember eventually they will sleep longer. Be firm with bedtime rituals and rules.

Catnapping or power naps. You sleep when they sleep.

The best way to get a toddler to sleep so you can sleep,is to run them ragged until they pass out. You follow suit.

you have to learn the art of cat-napping. if the toddler takes a nap, YOU take a nap. Also, when the child goes to bed at night - since it's a toddler, make it early - give yourself one hour to straighten up, do bills, whatever, then YOU GET IN THE BED!! You're going to have to learn to pick & choose what's important to you - having an immaculate house & well prepared meals or sleeping so you will stay healthy & strong for your baby. If the place gets messy, so be it. Also, if you have a partner/husband/significant other, you are going to have to ask for help! It's so hard to do it all on your own. Can you leave your child with a grandparent one evening a week? That way, with nobody underfoot, you can straighten up & get the housework done - then when you get the baby back, both of you go to bed!! Good luck - & believe me, it does get better & you WILL get used to much less sleep!!!

ive got newborn twins and a three year old.
sleep is overrated......sigh.
im getting by, on no sleep.
call family and friends for help.
take iron, and drink coffee untill this time passes.

Ideally you should get 7-8 hours of sleep. Sleep deprivation leads to hypertension (high blood presure), depression, not functioning at your full level. If you must get by on little amounts of sleep, 20minute naps can be very refreshing if you can find that time. Make sure you are taking a multivitamin and if you are extremely tired try a caffeine pill but beware when that wears off you will suddenly be extremely tired and your body will crash. 6 hours of sleep a night is minimum. YOu can actually die from exhaustion from not getting enough sleep. Psychologists have done studies that have shown different levels of sleep deprivation have lead to psychosis and have even resembled people that should be put in a mental health unit.
