In what must be the best ever example of stating the blimmin' obvious, researchers have discovered that working mums get less sleep than women who do not have kids.
But before you cry 'Give me strength' and berate me for writing about yet another silly study, let me tell you the best bit.
The researchers also proposed a number of recommendations to combat the lack of sleep that working mums must bear. My favourite of which is the idea of introducing "office sleep pods to enable short, restorative naps" for parents.
The obvious antidotes were also recommended - flexible working and tax schemes among them.
Interestingly, working mums get, on average, five hours less sleep a week than women who do not have children, while dads only lose an average of two hours' kip per week. (Cheers, dads.)
The Sun reports:
Parents who had children under the age of one were the most vulnerable to losing sleep and the hours of sleep lost increased with each subsequent child, the study found.
Mums with one kid got on average 48.8 hours of sleep a week, but this dropped to 45.8 hours after a second baby and 44.5 hours after their third child.
But let's just revisit the office nap pod for a moment. Could you imagine how freakin' awesome that would be?
Of course it's totally unworkable - the chances of having your snooze time curtailed by a clash in the nap time schedules would put me off for starters, plus I can't help think you'd look less than slick and professional if your boss knew you were off for forty winks every day after lunch.
And of course why stop at naps for working mums? Frankly I see no reason why the government can't implement a daily nap hour for parents everywhere, along with a robot nanny to take care of the kids while we catch up on a few Zzzs.
What I wouldn't give for the chance to rest my eyes for a few minutes in the midst of a long day chasing around after an inexhaustible two year old, followed by corralling her older brothers into doing their homework, tidying their rooms, and eating up their greens.
I could do with a little snooze right now, come to think of it.
So tell us, if you're a working mum would you use an office nap pod?! And in general are you for or against a cheeky little daytime snooze to help get you through the bedtime routine? Come and share your views in the comments below or join the debate on our Facebook page.
