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.
