Health Tip: When Children Wake at Night

Night waking means loss of vital sleep for both children and their parents.

The University of Michigan Health System mentions these common causes of night waking among children:

  • Having separation anxiety, especially if one or both parents are frequently away.
  • Having uncomfortable pajamas, a room that is too hot or cold, being hungry or thirsty, or having wet the bed.
  • Having a food sensitivity or allergy.
  • Having pain (such as ear pain, teething or abdominal pain) or colic.
  • Hearing noise.
