If you are a new parent, you already know that you aren’t getting as much sleep as you did pre-baby. And a new study shows that nearly 70% of new parents are not getting the recommended 7+ hours a night (or day).
In the first year of your child’s life, it was found that each parent is losing an average of 109 minutes of sleep each night. Obviously, this can have a major effect on both your mental and physical health.
Eventually, this will pass, but what to do in the meantime? A bedtime routine can help both you and your baby get a bit more rest.
