Infants, children and adolescents may develop bad sleep habits surrounding bedtime. These may include delayed bedtimes, difficulty falling asleep, frequent arousals/waking during the night, and difficulty waking up in the morning. The need for intervention by parents/ caregivers to provide rocking, soothing or bed sharing may add to the behavior. Having good sleep hygiene can help your child both to fall asleep and to stay asleep. There are several things that parents can do to aid this. Education and tips can be provided to families and patients on how to improve sleep hygiene.
