In the first year of the child’s life, the mother gets an average of 4 hours and 44 minutes of sleep per day, according to a report published by the Independent newspaper website – about a study conducted on mothers’ sleep deprivation – which found that the mother loses the equivalent of 59% of the total natural daily need for a person. .
The report added that there are many mothers who practice lullaby for children and walk with them for a distance equal to two miles per day, that distance is equivalent to 28 marathons annually (the length of the marathon is 42.195 km). The study revealed that the mother is emotionally drained during that period in which she wakes up 3 times every night.
And that study was conducted in Britain, and 23% of the study sample reported that sleep deprivation prompted them to behave somewhat strangely, and 11% of them suffered from hallucinations at some point, and 44% suffered from memory difficulties, although the first three months of a child’s life are the most difficult It may continue until the child's early years.
A research study on sleep published by the Oxford Academy also reported that although both parents are not satisfied with the hours of daily sleep, mothers are more exposed to less deep levels of sleep, as mothers' suffering begins since pregnancy, in which they lose a full hour of their normal daily sleep rates.
