Do not consider this a trivial problem of sleep disturbance experienced by the baby. Some parents think the problem will disappear by itself, but a study showed that babies who have sleep disorders tend to experience the same thing to children, compared to babies who always sleep well.
The researchers from Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center in Ohio found that 1 in 10 children under age three have sleep problems such as nightmares, frequent waking, insomnia, or inability to sleep in their own bed.
"The researchers suggest that sleep problems tend to persist for years," said Lisa Meltzer, a sleep specialist at National Jewish Health boy who was not involved in the study. "Children can not cope with their early sleep problems, and their data show quite clearly," he continued.
The researchers surveyed more than 250 mothers about the sleep behavior of their children. The survey was conducted when they were children aged 6, 12, 24, and 36 months. The result, if the baby is growing with no sleep problems, chances are they do not experience sleep problems in infancy. But 21 to 35 of every 100 children with sleep problems continue to have sleep problems later in life.
Kelly Byars, a child's psychological said that sleep problems can have an impact on children's mood, attention, learning, and development of the body. Meanwhile, according to Lisa Meltzer, a child specialist in sleep problems, parents should set the sleep time, wake time, and a consistent bedtime routine because research has shown that all things are very important.
