Hello! We’re happy you’re here. Landing on this blog means you’re taking the very important first step in your child’s sleep journey - and that’s understanding how much sleep impacts your child’s health.
More and more research everyday is revealing the correlation between poor sleep, sleep deprivation, and a myriad of health issues.
“In the short term, a lack of adequate sleep can affect judgment, mood, ability to learn and retain information, and may increase the risk of serious accidents and injury. In the long term, chronic sleep deprivation may lead to a host of health problems including obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and even early mortality.” - Division of Sleep Medicine at Harvard Medical School
