Do you believe this?!

While who gets more sleep when there’s a newborn in the house is a competition anyone would want to win, I think we all know there’s no winners when it comes to getting sleep with a new baby. Let’s face it, whether you’re the mom or the dad, chances are you’re both up all night.

However, I think most of us would simply assume that it’s the mom who tends to get less sleep, simply because men can’t breastfeed, yet a new study is showing that it’s actually men who sleep less.

Stop laughing.

While most of us assume that it’s the mom who gets the least amount of sleep with a newborn, a new study is proving it’s actually the dad who’s sleeping less.
