Who Needs Sleep? You Do, Mom

Recently more research is coming out about the importance of getting your zzz’s. Not getting the minimum 8 hours of sleep a night most of us need can cause major health concerns and parents with the most severe cases of sleep deprivation (due to a night-time waking baby) are much more likely to suffer from post-partum mood disorders and significant health concerns as well. Luckily, we’re starting to realize as a culture that we can’t defy our bodies. EVERYONE needs a good night’s rest. But, unfortunately, baby didn’t get that memo. Today on the show we’re talking with Malia Jacobsen sleep expert and author of “Ready, Set, Sleep: 50 Ways to Help Your Child Sleep, So You Can Sleep Too” on how you (and baby) can get more hours of much needed shut-eye.
