A new study has found that having kids means less sleep for women, but not for men.

They found 62 percent of women without kids get at least seven hours of sleep a night, compared to only 48 percent of women with kids, and there were no changes in the sleep habits for men with children or not.

Plus, for every child in a household, the odds of a woman having less than six hours of sleep increased by close to 50 percent.
