  • Survey of Mothers' Sleep and Fatigue

    We are pleased to announce our new online survey of mothersí sleep and fatigue. Please tell mothers you work with about our study. The more mothers we can get to participate, the more valid our findings. This study is open to all mothers with babies 0-12 months old. We would like to include breastfeeding and non-breastfeeding women, and women of all ethnicities and income levels.

    We hope to document:
    • Where and how much do babies sleep?
    • Are mothers who breastfeed and co-sleep more or less tired than mothers who donít?
    • Are mothers telling their friends, relatives and health care providers where their babies sleep?
    • Are there ethnic group differences in where babies sleep?
    • What is the role of depression, psychological trauma and difficult birth in mothersí ongoing daytime fatigue?
    The questionnaire takes 20 to 30 minutes to complete and is confidential. It has been approved by the Institutional Review Board at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, Amarillo, Texas.
