Health Tip: Why Babies Wake at Night

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

The University of Michigan Health System says potential risk factors for night waking include:

  • Having birth complications, including premature birth.
  • Having a difficult temperament.
  • Being breast-fed.
  • Co-sleeping with parents.
  • Feeding at night, because the toddler requires it or it's become a habit.
  • Having family issues that involve stress or depression.
