Sleep Difficulties in Children

In trying to help their children fall back asleep, parents may be setting them up for poor sleep patterns later on. Researchers surveyed parents of 987 children from the ages of five months until the children turned six and found that many things parents did early on when their children woke up, like giving them food or drink, or moving the children to the parents’ bed, led to sleep difficulties later on. Some of the problems included bad dreams, inability to fall asleep, and the inability to get a full night sleep. This is from the University of Montreal.
