According to a recent study, women who recently gave birth should sleep more if they want to lose weight. According to a Sydney Morning Herald article about the study, ” They found that mothers who slept five hours or less a day when their babies were six months old were three times more likely than more rested mothers to have kept on the extra weight at one year.”
This sounds like a win-win, more sleep and less weight, but I can’t imagine it is very easy for mothers of newborns to get any sleep, let alone more sleep. Your thoughts?
