Night Awakening and Infants

Did you know that…..

Night awakening are commons in about 50% of infants, and is related to the development of “separation anxiety” ?

Returning the child to his bed with simple reassurance or sitting outside the open bedroom door until he settles down usually is effective.

Allowing the child to sleep with parents or scolding him usually prolong the problem.
