How much sleep do you actually lose during your first year of being a mum?
OK, so we have all heard the stories about how you can pretty much kiss sleep goodbye once you become a mother, right?
As in; eight hours? Forget about it. Weekend lie-ins? Dream. On.
But did you know exactly how much sleep you lose as a new parent? More specifically; in your baby's first year of life?
Get ready to feel tired, mamas. Very, very tired.
Because according to Netmums, a new survey has just revealed that the amount of sleep a new parent lose in the 365 days following birth is baby is:
That is nine hundred and seventy hours, mamas. 970. Which, to scare you even more, is the equivalent of 40 days.
Oh, and it gets better (or worse, really). Because the survey also revealed that mums are worse off as they lose a whopping 23 more minutes sleep every night compared to new dads.
Yikes. No wonder we feel like putting the kettle on after reading this...
