  • Children and Sleep Disorders
    Children's sleep disorders symptoms are often times different than the symptoms of an adult. It is very important for parents and caregivers to be aware of this.

    Sleepwalking (Somnambulism) is a series of complex behaviors that are initiated during slow wave sleep and result in walking during sleep.

  • Children Complain of Daytime Sleepiness
    Nearly three out of four parents (73%) believe that children should spend as much time learning about good sleep habits as they do about good nutrition and the benefits of exercise. Not surprisingly, this percentage is even higher among parents whose children admitted to falling asleep at school during the past year (84%).

  • Childrens Sleep Forum
    The Children's Sleep Forum is a good place to ask your questions about sleep problems. Also includes overviews of sleep disorders including sleep apnea, night terrors, and sleep walking.

    Infant sleep apnea is characterized by central apneas or obstructive apneas that occur while asleep. An apnea is the stoppage of airflow at the nostrils and mouth lasting at least 10 seconds.

  • Nightmares and Night Terrors in Children
    Nightmares are scary dreams. Most children have them from time to time. One out of every 4 children has nightmares more than once a week. Most nightmares happen very late in the sleep period (usually between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m.). Your child may wake up and come to you for comfort.

    Some children have episodes of night terror that may occur less than once per month, and do not result in harm to the child or others. While some children experience episodes less than once per week, and do not result in harm to the child or others. In its severest form, the episodes occur almost nightly, or are associated with physical injury to the child or others. Consult a sleep specialist if you are concerned.

  • Sleep and Its Disorders in Children
    The newborn baby spends nearly half of sleep in rapid-eye movement (REM) sleep. In one-month premature babies this rises to 67%, and up to 80% at two-months prematurity. In the first year, REM sleep falls dramatically (in both relative and absolute terms), from around 8 hours a day in the first week to around half this level by the first birthday.

  • Sleep Disorders And Children
    Children from infancy to adolescence can also suffer from a wide variety of sleep disorders including Infant Apnea Syndrome. Premature infants are particularly prone to apnea, but full term infants may also be affected.

  • Sleep Patterns and Sleep Disruptions in School-Age Children
    This study assessed the sleep patterns, sleep disruptions, and sleepiness of school-age children. Sleep patterns of 140 children (72 boys and 68 girls; 2nd-, 4th-, and 6th-grade students) were evaluated with activity monitors (actigraphs). In addition, the children and their parents completed complementary sleep questionnaires and daily reports. The findings reflected significant age differences, indicating that older children have more delayed sleep onset times and increased reported daytime sleepiness.

  • Sleep Problems in Children
    Sleep problems are very common among children during the first few years of life. Problems may include a reluctance to go to sleep, waking up in the middle of the night, nightmares, and sleepwalking. In older children, bed-wetting can also become a challenge.

  • Sleep-related breathing disorders in children
    DISORDERED BREATHING during sleep is a major problem affecting the health and well-being of many infants, children and adolescents. Although significant progress has been made in understanding various pathological conditions that result in sleep-disordered breathing, exact etiologies remain elusive.

  • Sleepwalking in Children
    Sleepwalking is a disorder in which a child partly, but not completely, awakens during the night. The child may walk or do other things without any memory of doing so.
