In brief: Fragmentation
New dad or parent.
Sleep pattern will become more like that of your newborn: fragmented. Unfortunately this leads to much lighter sleep and less restorative sleep. The key is to try to sleep for as long of periods as can be gotten so falling asleep when child falls asleep. Avoid exhaustion which can cause signfiicant mood disturbances and other problems.
