Stop stifling a yawn at the back there; welcome to Sleep Month
SLEEP. It's one of the big topics of pregnancy and motherhood, and for good reason. Sleep is something we spend an average of 229,961 hours doing, in our life, and it's something you don't fully appreciate until you're no longer getting eight hours undisturbed and have kissed goodbye to your blissful pre-baby lie-ins.
Whether you're pregnant or a new mum, or a not-so-new mum, sleep seems to dominate the parenting conversations. So this month, on TalkMum, we'll be talking about sleep.
