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.

While this isn’t recommended on a nightly basis, now that your little one is sleeping through you can actually pour yourself a glass or two of vino and not stress about doing the “pump and dump” for the breastfeeders among us, or having to drag your slightly groggy self out of bed to settle your crying toddler. It may be tempting to down the whole bottle on a Friday or Saturday night at dinner but don’t – hangovers and kids still don’t mix, even if they are sleeping through the night!
