I'm in the same boat as your baby huh?
Aside from the lack of sleep,is she totally fatigued?
Try taking turns with the night feedings. If she is breast feeding,try changing the baby for her,or try and wake up when it's time to feed. You could help by holding the baby up to her.
Make sure your wife is eating well and perhaps start taking a multi-vitamin if she isn't already.
Have the doctor check her iron levels as well. Low iron will make things worse. No energy,cold all the time,etc.
If at all possible try and let her nap as much as she feels she needs.
Maybe you know someone that can come over and help her while you are not home. Even a friend that can just hang out and give her a hand with the chores.
Maybe you could do the laundry/house cleaning/cooking for her once in awhile? Just don't get angry with her if your clothes aren't clean or supper isn't ready when you are.
Having a new baby is one of the hardest things to cope with. When the little one starts sleeping through the night you will notice a huge difference in mom.
My son only woke up 4 times last night,and that was the best sleep I've had in 6 months! I feel great today!
Another worry is post-natal/partum depression. She may start to want to sleep all the time and get very cranky. She could also suffer from insomnia(the inability to fall and stay asleep). She will need to see a doctor for those problems.
Just try and help out when and where you can,and above all love her and show her your support,but it sounds like you are already supportive. : )

Mayo clinic website

Ask your doctor for a "sleep study". They will hook her up with electrodes and monitor breathing, heart rate and state of sleep. The next night, they will give her a "cpap" or sleep apnea mask and test again. She may need one. Google sleep apnea and answer the quiz to see if she is likely to have sleep apnea.

I have trouble sleeping and take sedatives to help me fall asleep but my wife says that I snore more when I take a sedative. Is that true?

: Your wife is actually right. Sedatives and alcohol have the same effect; they depress your central nervous system which relaxes your muscles and the tissues in your throat. The tissues then block the airways more and lead to snoring. So you either need to find an alternative to your sleeping problems or try and solve the snoring issue.

Good luck.

Thinking of buying this tent would you recommend it?

I used this tent quite often on my hiking trips, it's not the Rolls Royce of tents, but it's a good value for your money.

Pros -
easy to set up - 10 minutes is vry slow....
Can sleep to easly as long as they are not very tall, below 6'2".
Nice view

Cons -
lack of vestibule
lack of second door really annoying when the inner person wakes up earlier or go to sleep later...
weight, a bit heavy for long and serious hiking.

Need my sleep !!!

You could try downloading a silent ringer to use as a global default ringer (for when your sleeping) and set your wife, daughter, and school as a specific audible ring tone. Then when you wake up just change the global default back to an audible one.
