Parent sleep question

I have 7 kids and I’m just really tired in the mornings. So after I take 6 to school and come home I usually feed the baby and she usually goes down for a nap and then I take a nap too. Is it bad if I take a nap? I feel like I should be doing stuff while she is sleeping but I’m just so tired.

    My husband and my mother both say I don’t need to be napping but I’m just so tired and need that extra sleep.

    If you’re tired, nap. Simple as that. Plus, you have 7 kids it’s totally understandable to be tired.

    Nap! Nap! As much as you can. You can do stuff while the baby is awake. You deserve the rest. Your husband and mother do not know/understand how exhausted you are.

    Not at all !!!!!!! I wish I could nap but I make sure I do something for myself when she does nap. Usually a nice long warm shower.

    Tell your husband and mother to stop worrying about you and start worrying about themselves!! Sheesh!! 🙄

    You totally need that nap! I was just like you, I’d tell myself that I should take advantage of the time while my daughter being asleep so I could get things done. You have 6 kids(bless all of them) and you need to take care of yourself in order for you to be able to take care of them 👍🏼👍🏼😊

    I am the same way, I have one baby, and when he’s sleeping- I’m sleeping!! My husband has even learned that once our son goes down for a nap, he naps too! He’s at work all week, and doesn’t nap, and used to try and keep our son up all day when he was home, then learned he wanted to enjoy naps too!! Now, once it’s nap time, the whole house goes down for a nap!!!

    How old is baby? Sleeping through the night? Both questions are really irrelevant, but if you're tired, nap, especially if getting up several times a night. And sounds like morning will be the only time you get one. Why are they concerned/ have input as to whether you need a nap or not? Do you tell them when to sleep?
