How to get more energy

The last 3 months of pregnancy I got no more than 2 hours of sleep a night. I have a 'high spirited' toddler so couldn't nap in the day. I'm a long term insomniac so I'm used to sleep deprivation.

Now I have a 14 week old who feeds 2-3 times a night on a good night (that's fine) but 6/7 times on a bad night. Last night was a bad night and she woke for the day at 4am. I'm not actually too worried about her sleep but I'm started to really struggle with my energy levels in the day. Today I had lots of plans of activities for my toddler but have ended up giving her the iPad now and am counting the minutes till bedtime.

Any ideas on boosting my energy levels?

Probably eating better and ironically staying off caffeine as in the long term it probably doesn't help. Ultimately you need someone to help out and give you some time to catch up every few days.
