Lack of sleep?!

Could lack of sleep cause anxiety?! I can fall asleep fine but the lack of sleep is due to my kids. I have a 3 yr old and an 8 month old. I don't think I've gotten a proper night sleep in 4 yrs. I feel like if I don't sleep well enough I wake up with a fuzzy feeling in my head or dizzyish like. Is this normal?! Has anyone else experienced this before?!

Yes total normal, lack of sleep and caring for kids is hard work! You have to either sleep train them or hack for a little while longer until they are older and sleep better. It sucks I have a 4 and a 2 year old, the 2 year old still wakes every night 😩

Why won't they just sleep! Lol both my boys go back to sleep after they've used the bathroom or had their milk. So I'm glad for that. But it does take a toll on me. Thanks for the reply
