It is a fact… Moms simply don’t get enough sleep. It starts in pregnancy; then there is the feeding, teething, fever, nightmares, tantrums, and many other things that Moms wake up to in the middle of the night. To make it worse, Moms then trade off sleep for that little bit of peace and quiet late at night once the kids go to bed! Ask any Mom and they will say that sleep deprivation is just part of being a mother!
Keep yourself and your family safe
However, don’t ignore your own health, it is hard to get enough sleep as a Mom but it is worth the effort. When you are sleep deprived, it not only affects you but it also affects everyone in your family, particularly your child… you are more likely to make mistakes, or have an accident, particularly in the car.
So think hard about what your sleep loss is costing you… think about how much more enjoyable and productive your time with your child would be when you are not sleep deprived and at your best?
