New Mom Naomi Watts Admits She Isn't Sleeping

New Mom Naomi Watts Admits She Isn't Sleeping

Naomi Watts may look like a million bucks less than two months after baby Samuel's December birth, but this morning she admitted to Ellen that she isn't getting any shut-eye. The mama to two lil ones (she and partner Liev Schreiber also have one-year-old Alexander) said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show:

I'm getting no sleep — literally, because I'm feeding all through the night. He's still eating every three to four hours... I'm really never grounded these days.


Naomi, who is promoting the film The International, also admitted Alexander has "regressed a little bit" and wants attention whenever his bro has middle-of-the-night feedings. Getting enough zzzs is an enormous challenge with a new baby, especially when juggling two youngsters, but most lilsugar readers have Naomi beat by six to eight hours per night. Did you suffer complete sleep deprivation when your child was born?

No matter how little sleep I got, the newborn days never made me feel sleep-deprived. I must've run on adrenaline the first year or so. It's only now that I sometimes feel like I should take a damn nap.

with the first one i did. i think i was overwhelmed by the idea of becoming a parent, so emotionally i was already exhausted. and every little peep woke me up, "the baby needs me!" only maybe it was my husband yawning. my second baby was much, much eaiser, right from the get go. i don't remember with number 3 how tired i was

Why is she "admitting" this like it's something she should be ashamed of. She's sharing her mom experiences.
