Hooray! Finally having more time to sleep is just one of the perks of having a child who consistently sleeps through the night. But in case you’ve forgotten all the fun you used to get up to before you had a baby – because you’ve been busy falling face first onto your pillow every spare moment you’ve had – we’re here to remind you.
1. Staying up late
When you have a baby, you never know how much sleep you’re going to get so it’s often wise to take yourself to bed straight after bub’s gone down. This way you can get at least a few hours in before they need a feed or the wake-up party begins. But when they’re sleeping through, you can actually stay up late reading or bingeing on Netflix shows without fearing they’re going to wake up the minute you hop into bed. Children do wake early though, so ideally hit the sack before midnight or you’re still going to be tired the next day.
