The Real Reason New Moms Are Tired

New in Personalized Living Webzine:

Quoted Text
Four plus four may always be eight, but research shows us that equation doesn’t add up when it comes to sleep.  A new study finds that new moms are exhausted not by the lack of sleep, but rather by fragmented, or interrupted, sleep.

I was a little baffled by this little "article"; new daddies are tired for similar reasons.
Adjusting to the feeding needs of a newborn isn't easy for the involved father who may be the one to bring the baby to the mother and change a diaper and/or soothe the child in the middle of the night.

Other reasons new mothers are tired: Hard to catch up on sleep until the baby's routine settles in; ignorance about the higher protein and vitamin needs of the nursing woman; anxiety/stress during the adjustment to either her first or to an additional child changing the family dynamics, as well as any from her workplace or family/in-laws visiting (or not)..........

"The Real Reason New Moms are Tired"?
I've encountered all these and more - there's really no ONE "REAL" reason, versus all the others...

I'd add another, too: Her overall health picture.
Pregnancy and childbirth must be recovered from. Some mothers have had particularly difficult births, including Caesareans. Sometimes underlying conditions are revealed through that critical year.

So I wouldn't instruct women to expect one pat answer to their exhaustion at that time, especially. They need more of a checklist under the circumstances, rather than a blanket pronouncement, IMO.

Breastfeeding and co-sleeping make for more rested moms (or, at least "less exhausted" moms.) Nursing, co-sleeping babies are on the same sleep cycles as their moms, so when baby wakes to feed, you're woken out of a shallow sleep, not a deep one. I noticed the difference when the baby was sick or teething and woke me out of DEEP sleep- boy was I exhausted those days!

I agree
But I must admit that when Emma started sleeping at age 4 months  in one go from midnight to 6 in the morning - I felt so much more rested...
