The impacts of sleep deprivation
Lack of sleep is a common complaint from parents with new born babies. However, sleep deprivation is not normal. It can effect mental and physical health, relationships and the well being of the whole family.
As their babies become toddlers, some parents endure years of stress due to unnecessary sleep deprivation. They are stuck on the thought that there is nothing they can do to change this behaviour. Consequently, poor sleep impacts the feeding, behaviour and relationship of adults and their children.
