How To Get Quality Sleep As A New Parent

8. Get That Extra Sleep When You Can
Researchers have discovered you really can save extra sleep for the future, so you don’t have to freak out every time you have a rough night. While this might seem straightforward, it does mean you need to make sleep a priority whenever possible.

Dr. Bailey shared, “Sleep is like money — you can save it, or you can burn it. So, the most important thing you can do is to have a 'sleep credit' that you have built up by getting extra shut-eye on a normal night. This will help your body function well even after one night of sleeplessness. Then, make it a priority to catch up on sleep the next night.”
