A study of 1,091 mothers across the UK found that 98% of mothers experienced ‘broken sleep’ throughout the first year of their baby’s life with the typical bay waking 3.9 times.

When asked how long they were awake for whilst tending to their baby on each occasion, the study found that, on average, the respondents were awake for 31.6 minutes each time.

According to the study, prior to having children the respondents slept for an average of 7.8 hours a night. Therefore, if the average mother woke 3.9 times each night for 31.6 minutes at a time, they lost an average of 2.05 hours sleep a night
