BABY NEEDS SLEEP

Paper Boy - - Life / Style -

Lack of sleep may raise the risk for ges­ta­tional di­a­betes, ac­cord­ing to data from eight stud­ies in­volv­ing 17,595 women. Ges­ta­tional di­a­betes — ab­nor­mally high blood su­gar that de­vel­ops dur­ing preg­nancy — can lead to ex­ces­sive birth weight, preterm birth or res­pi­ra­tory dis­tress in the baby. It can also in­crease the mother’s risk for Type 2 di­a­betes later in life.
