LeBron James may be feeling "daddy brain" today. At 5:22 a.m., the NBA star and father of a newborn daughter live-tweeted his baby's restless night:
James, who is already the father of two boys, gets kudos for letting his wife and new mom Savannah Brinson sleep. Their daughter was born Oct. 22. While he may be feeling groggy today, James's tweets may have won him some new fans, as the sports website SBNation declared him "the adorable king of Dad Twitter."
If it's any comfort, James is probably not the only foggy-brained parent today. Nearly a quarter of 18-34 year-old parents say their children keep them from sleeping through the night, according to the TODAY "Snooze or Lose" sleep survey. And 84 percent — only 84 percent? — say it's a huge relief when the baby starts sleeping through the night.
But James should be reassured. Some of the sleep debt can be repaid, as sleep expert Dr. Anne Mooney told TODAY anchor and new parent Savannah Guthrie this week. The most important tip for James or any new parent: Nap when the baby naps.
