New mothers actually get more sleep than the average American

It's perhaps no surprise that new mothers feel sleep deprived. What may come as a surprise though, is a new report that shows they're wrong.

Apparently, new mothers get just over 7 hours of sleep per night during their baby's first four months - which is more than the average American. This contradicts similar research undertaken by Silentnight (see: Your children are the cause of your insomnia).

Apparently new mothers feel tired because their sleep is frequently disrupted, resulting in daytime fatigue. It has nothing to do with the number of hours spent sleeping each night.

This just goes to show that it isn't just the amount of time you spend sleeping that affects your health - quality is just as important.

    Maybe I did get seven hours scattered throughout the day in the first 6-8 months, but it certainly wasn’t always I got a nap, and it certainly wasn’t restful enough.

    There is a difference, for me at least, between being unable to sleep, and being actively kept from sleep. Sleep deprivation is a known torture technique.
