Solve Our Sleep and Working Mother Media Sleep Survey
Dr. Whitney Roban and Working Mother Media have partnered on a groundbreaking sleep survey to assess the effects of family sleep deprivation on working mothers. All of our data suggest that working mothers and their children are severely sleep deprived, and this sleep deprivation is wreaking havoc on working mother’s personal and professional lives, as well as having a negative affect on the corporations they serve. Here’s what we found:
An astounding 68% of working mothers reported that they get only 6 hours or less sleep per night, and a meager 3% of working moms report that they are “almost always rested”.
A substantial 59% of respondent’s children went to bed at 9pm or later, and woke up at 6am or earlier. Besides these late bedtimes and early wake up times, a whopping 74% of our respondents report that their children wake at least one, if not more, times per night. To further exacerbate the family’s sleep deprivation, 41% of our respondent’s children sleep in their mother’s bed and/or their mother’s bedroom, with 90% of those children doing so at least one night per week and 58% doing so every single night.
When it comes to family leave, 71% of our respondents took less than 4 months of leave after having a child. As a result, it was no surprise that a scant 2% returned to work after family leave feeling well rested.
Only 52% of working moms reported that they had tried to sleep train their children. However, a robust 70% of these moms reported success with the sleep training.
A massive 94% of our respondents report that their respective companies do not offer any sleep wellness programs at work. However, 64% of those working moms report that being offered a Family Sleep Support Program at work would be very helpful. Furthermore, our data also support offering this type of family sleep support to working mothers on family leave or immediately upon their return to work.
Dr. Whitney Roban and Solve Our Sleep offer a unique and groundbreaking Corporate Family Sleep Program that will end working parent's struggles with sleep deprivation by offering education, solutions and support focused on family sleep. As a result, working parents and the corporations they serve will finally reap the benefits of a well rested family.
