Actress admits sleepless baby stress

Margaret Jack  By Margaret Jack   |   Posted in Industry News   |   Last updated: Monday 24th December 2012

Hollywood actress Megan Fox has revealed that she hired a night nurse to look after her newborn son in a bid to avoid the excesses of sleep deprivation, despite initially attempting to cope without help. Fox and her partner Brian Green had their first child in September. Speaking on US TV, Fox told Jay Leno, “It’s a lot of work and I didn’t hire any help because I overestimated my own abilities. I said to Brian: We have to get a night nurse or we’re going to get a divorce because someone’s got to sleep in this house or we’re going to kill each other.”

Transformers star Fox went on to explain that the night-time nanny works for two evenings a week, giving the couple valuable time to catch up on sleep.

Newborn babies, despite sleeping for up to eighteen hours a day, are notoriously disruptive to parents’ sleep schedules with regular feeding and a lack of awareness between day and night. The pressures of combining a newborn in the home with work and everyday tasks such as housework can become, as Megan Fox explained, quickly excessive as the effects of sleep deprivation take their toll.
