    I'm surprised that this sort of study, with a sample size of only 225, was published. It seems like quite a stretch to extrapolate that kids are not emotionally affected and their relationships with their parents are not negatively affected with such a small sample size....

    Perhaps it would be more beneficial for parents to change their expectations (leading to less depression) than for the babies to change their behavior.

    I could have told you that for free!
    but glad to hear the study backs up what we sleep deprived moms already know!
