2nd May, 2009

The most common childhood sleep problem is frequent waking during the night, where a baby or young child continues to wake long past the age at which they would be expected to do so, which is approximately six months.

The main cause of this type of sleep problem is sleep association – in other words, all the things a child associates with falling asleep.

All children will have slightly different sleep associations.
