There are many ways you can help children and their families get the care they need.
Insomnia in children is very common and is characterized by struggles around going to bed, difficulty falling asleep at bedtime or problems staying asleep during the night. Children with insomnia may also wake up very early. Insomnia can occur in children of all ages, from infants to toddlers, preschoolers, school-aged children and adolescents.
Research shows that sleep problems have adverse effects on daytime functioning, including difficulties paying attention, excessive sleepiness and fatigue, behavioral problems such as hyperactivity and poor impulse control, and difficulty regulating emotions. Children's insomnia can also deprive caregivers of sleep, causing stress and disruptions in family life.
Specialists at Boston Children's Hospital's Sleep Center can help parents address these issues, which can make all the difference in getting a good night's sleep.
