Hi Malvika. Here are some tips you can include in your lifestyle to improve your sleep - 📍Sleep on time,choose a specific time daily for sleep 📍Turn off all your gadgets 1 hour before bed 📍Create a proper night time routine to wind down properly 📍Skip drinking from excess water,tea & coffee too close to bed 📍Take a light dinner 2-4 hours before bed 📍Practice mindfulness before bed; reading a book, listening to calming music, practicing meditation can help 📍Some stretching can also help removing tension from the body. Refrain from heavy workouts too close to bed. 📍 Taking warm baths before bed helps too. 📍 Refrain from taking longer naps during the day. Hope this helps!

It is understandable due to frequent wakeup the sleep schedule turns a havoc. Along with the tips mentioned above you could also try and maintain your sleep schedule to match the baby's sleep time or power naps when the baby is asleep.
