Men, do you take care of baby while mommy catches up on sleep?

Dear dads out there... hello!  Do you take care of baby for an hour or a few, while mommy catches up on her sleep?  If there are no men out there, ladies feel free to answer for them!

That is great idea, because to take care of the baby you need energy and be awake

Daddy needs to catch up on more sleep than mommy does - even right after the birth. I dont know how he functions on 5 hours or less a night, most nights, year after year......

He does on weekends but it's hard for me to sleep in when my bebe is crying and I know I have a billion things to do.  Ho hum, guess I gave up sleep when I got pregnant, eh?  That'll teach
