When people say they slept like a baby isn't that supposed to me they had a great nights sleep?

Here lately I have been sleeping like a new born baby, waking up every few hours. It is hard enough for me to go to sleep since by nature I am a night owl. I like to stay up late, I always have. But because of my job, you all know I have to get up early. Which is quite a struggle sometimes.

I have never really been a person who wakes up in the night or one of those people who has to get up and go to the bathroom. I have always been able to sleep through the night. Here lately I have been waking up about 3 am thinking it was time to get up. I look at the clock thinking, ok good I still have an hour and half to sleep.

So my new observation, sleeping like a baby doesn't always mean you got a great nights sleep.

Anyone have any suggestions to aid my sleep?
