Solving Sleep Behavior Disorders in Infants and Toddlers: The Munich Research and Intervention Program for Fussy Babies
Papousek, Mechthild
Zero to Three (J), v29 n3 p38-43 Jan 2009
Sleep behavior disorders do not only affect infants' well-being, they also challenge the parents' physical and emotional resources, promote risks for the growing parent-infant relationships, and burden the parents' co-parenting relationship. Sleep-onset and night waking problems are widely spread among otherwise healthy infants, and they tend to escalate and persist without intervention. Based on international research and clinical data and experience from the Munich Research and Intervention Program for Fussy Babies, this article describes common sleep behavior disorders, their symptoms, developmental origins, and methods for early preventative and therapeutic intervention.
