The findings are a part of the Baby Show poll in which more than 2,000 couple participated. The researchers looked into the sleeping patterns of new parents and found that just 60 percent of them said that they shared a bed every night after the baby is born.

The poll also highlighted the fact that more and more fathers are taking responsibility of the baby with 60 percent of them saying that they attend the child if it starts to cry in the night while over 33 percent of the couples said that they do it in turns.

However caring for a new born is more stressful for the mothers with nearly a quarter of women admitting that they require sleeping pills in order to sleep in the night.

"10 percent of newly married couples sleep apart.." "30 percent regularly prefer a separate bed in the first year" Sorry, but can you explain to me how 10% and 30% equals "most"?

How can you say 'more than 10%' is 'most'? Get a dictionary Kathy Jones.
