Lack of sleep, mothers struggle

13th September 2007

Women with new babies are only managing to sleep for an average of three and a half hours every night.

According to new research investigating sleep patterns in women with young babies, this amount is half the amount their own mothers slept. The research found that mothers found it difficult to get their baby to settle down and go to sleep.

An improvement in the amount of sleep - up to five hours - was not usually found to occur until a baby reaches the age of 18 months. 50% of women said a lack of sleep was detrimental to their relationship with their partners.
