There are many ways you can help children and their families get the care they need.
These resources can help you and your child get ready for your appointment at our Sleep Center at Boston Children’s Hospital.
Logging your child’s sleep
Making a record of your child’s sleep can be a big help in diagnosing problems. Here is a sleep chart (pdf) you can use. If you fill out the chart for a couple of weeks before you come in for a consultation, it will help us understand your child’s sleep. You may even start to spot problematic sleep patterns before you come to your appointment.
This list of Frequently asked questions regarding the Sleep Laboratory explains the different kinds of tests we do at the Sleep Labs. Please review it a few days before your child’s test so that you can know how to get ready and what to bring.
You can also learn more about sleep studies (also called “polysomnography”) here.
