Many babies and young children struggle to sleep all night, which makes for tired parents.

  • Having had birth complications, including premature birth.
  • Having a difficult temperament.

  • Feeding at night, because the toddler requires it or it's become a habit.
  • Having family issues that involve stress or depression.
