Lack of Zs for Young Children

DECEMBER 01, 2005

It is no surprise to parents that many babies and toddlers do not get adequate sleep. A recent survey found that 26% of parents of children up to 4 years old reported that their child does not get sufficient sleep. Of the 1003 parents and caregivers surveyed, 40% said that their child has a problem nearly every day or night, including difficulty falling asleep, waking up in the middle of the night, or getting up too early in the morning. The survey also found that, as children get older, they are less prone to sleep 12 to 15 hours a day, the recommended minimum from the National Sleep Foundation (NSF) and pediatric sleep experts.

In addition, of the parents and caregivers surveyed, 71% said that they get less sleep than they feel they need. The survey was commissioned by Pampers (Procter & Gamble Co) and conducted with the NSF.
