The more rested your child is, the more willingly he/she accepts sleep.
Some arousals from sleep are normal. Problems appear when children do not manage to return to sleep by themselves. They have not learned the process of falling asleep.
Junk food is harmful for your baby. The same is true for a junk sleep schedule. You try not to let your child become overly hungry, so don’t let him/her become overly tired!
If your child does not get necessary skills to sleep well, he may grow into an incurable adult insomniac, chronically suffering from sleepiness and dependent on sleeping pills.
Fatigue leads to hyperactivity. Therefore, the more tired your little one is, the more difficult it is for him to fall asleep, stay asleep, or both.
Sleep begets sleep. It is not logical that earlier bedtimes allow children to sleep longer in the morning, it’s biological.
The crying baby may be hungry or just fussy. Or he/she might be simply overtired!
If you start with sleep training from the very beginning, you will be well along the path to preventing sleep problems.
Small but constant deficits in sleep over time lead to escalating and most likely long-term effects on brain function.
Naps promote optimal alertness for children. Children who take restful naps spend more time in the quiet alert state when awake.
