Why too little sleep can cause your child to be overweight — 2 Comments

  1. our 3.5 year old son only ever sleeps a maximum of 10 broken hours sleep a night. he has never ever slept more than that. we have been to hospital and done sleep studies, been to residential ‘sleep school’ 3 times, with no improvement. he is quite tall and skinny (102cm, 14.5kg). surely there are children that just need less sleep. i feel like a bad parent, but there is nothing more i can do to help my child sleep. we follow a strict routine and he’s in bed at 7pm every night. perhaps there should be a remark in your article to acknowledge that whilst this may be the average sleep requirements, it does not apply to all children.

  2. I liked the report of research made on sleep.I would like to know more about healthy researches which can be useful to me.
