The Role of Intrinsic and Extrinsic Factors in Infant Night Waking
Karraker, Katherine
Journal of Early and Intensive Behavior Intervention, v5 n3 p108-121 2008
This literature review focuses on factors found to be associated with individual differences in infant night waking. Infant night waking that requires parent intervention to assist the infant to return to sleep is of special concern to parents because of the sleep deprivation and fragmentation that they experience. Both intrinsic and extrinsic factors related to night waking are considered and strategies for reducing night waking are briefly reviewed. An integrative perspective on the causes and effects of night waking, which considers both parent-infant behavioral contingencies and developmental/transactional processes, is proposed.
