There’s no way to sugarcoat it: A whopping 67 percent of American women, regardless of whether they’re a parent, have trouble sleeping1. If you’re one of the lucky women who has never experienced sleep issues before becoming a mom, when you have a baby, you might be surprised that lack of sleep can be an issue.
Not every new parent is going to experience major sleep issues, of course. But here is the truth: Parenthood brings sleep interruptions galore, especially in the first few months. One study shows that more than half of parents report losing two or more more hours of sleep for about the first 12 weeks2 of their baby’s life.

This guide is designed to provide you with a better understanding of why you need sleep (and what qualifies as adequate sleep for parents of infants), what can keep you awake (beyond baby-related interruptions), how to better prepare for and optimize the sleep you do manage to get, and what to do when all your valiant efforts still result in #sleepfail.
