I like the suggestions here - before reading them I was thinking of a journal - buy one and place it by the bed so when she comes to wake you, she sees it and writes it down. If you MAKE SURE to discuss at the first earliest convenience, then it may work but she'll have to be heard.
But she's probably starved for adult interaction.
Can you afford part-time daycare or a church that offers "Mommy's Morning Out"? She could meet other women - lots just went out for brunch during that time to be with other adults. Or if you are in a neighborhood with other mothers, she could start a play group by hosting the first one to get to know other women in the neighborhood. Plus you'll know some people to leave them with for date nights.
I remember I lived in the country when my daughter was born and the closest two neighbors were a retired couple and a couple with teenagers. I called my few friends a LOT and would try to meet them for lunch just to talk to an adult who wasn't my husband.
