Research Says Parents Don’t Get Enough Sleep for the First 6 Years After a Child Is Born

Adults need to have no less than 7–9 hours of quality sleep every night, according to the National Sleep Foundation. But there is a small problem that it’s impossible to find a solution for. Newborns don’t pay a lot of attention to these recommendations and keep their moms and dads up around the clock. And it appears that these parental yawns may go on for much longer than we might expect.
