New parents miss out on 6 months' worth of sleep
It won't be a big surprise to anyone with a toddler, but researchers in the U.K. have determined exactly how much sleep new parents miss out on during the first two years of their child's life: an astonishing six months' worth. Many new moms and dads get by on less than four hours a night. There's a simple fix, though, according to research from Penn State University. Babies tend to respond to "emotional availability," meaning the children of sensitive parents begin sleeping through the night earlier. Getting angry with your wailing kid, says the study, only makes things worse.
