Children and Sleep
Pediatric Sleep Disorders
Sleep disorders in children are very common; even infants may have sleep disorders. Poor sleep quality and/or quantity in children are associated with a host of problems, including academic, behavioral, developmental and social difficulties, weight abnormalities, and other health problems. Not only do pediatric sleep problems affect children’s health, but they can impact family dynamics and parental or sibling sleep. While many children will outgrow these sleeping problems, there are many cases in which it is signaling an underlying disorder.
