Behavioral Therapies Beneficial to Help Children Sleep

Recent review of data has revealed that behavioral therapies can benefit children who have problems falling asleep or continuously wake up during the night.//

The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) appointed a team which reviewed 52 studies with a total of 2,500 babies and toddlers.

According to study author Jodi A. Mindell of St. Joseph's University of Philadelphia previous studies have shown 20 to 30 percent of young children have sleep problems.

Mindell said that the results of the data review "indicate that behavioral therapies produce reliable and durable changes in bedtime problems and night awakenings in infants and children."

"Across all studies, 94 percent report that behavioral interventions produced clinically significant improvements in bedtime problems and/or night wakings. Approximately 82 percent of children benefit from treatment, and the majority maintain these results for three to six months."

Parents are advised to help their children sleep better by following a consistent going-to-bed routine, interacting with their children at bedtime, establishing a relaxing setting at bedtime,and preventing kids from consuming foods or drinks that contain caffeine as bed time draws nearer.
