As much as you love spending time with your child, having a break from your little one is a healthy and rejuvenating time for parents. That's why you bust out a happy dance as soon as your baby shuts her eyes and sails off into dreamland. Unfortunately, sometimes a baby just won't sleep and, what's even worst, is that sometimes their inability to sleep last for days. When this happens, parents go on a mission to find the causes of insomnia in babies.
Suffering through nights with a baby who won't settle at bedtime or wakes often after you've put them to sleep, you're in the majority. According to data gathered by the National Sleep Foundation, more than two-thirds of children suffer from frequent sleep problems. However, it's not always easy for parents to figure out why their child is going struggling to get the amount of shut eye needed. Additionally, pediatricians do not regularly screen for sleep issues in children or discuss the possibility with parents at office visits, according to the website for the U.S. National Library of Medicine. Taking responsibility into your own hands will be easier when you scan for these possible insomnia causes in your baby.
