Parental sleep-related practices and child sleep problems: A systematic review.

Project Details

Description

This systematic review aims to identify the relationships between parental sleep-related practices and sleep problems in children aged 1-6 years old.

Theoretical models have identified wide-ranging factors that may influence child sleep. One of the most direct associations is suggested to be between parental bedtime behaviours (methods used by parents to settle their child to sleep at night, or if they wake overnight) and poor child sleep. However, there are other broader parental sleep-related practices (e.g. endorsement of appropriate bedtime routines and 24 hour sleep hygiene habits) which may also be important.

All quantitative peer-reviewed articles that include an exploration of the relationship between parental sleep-related practices and child sleep problems will be included.

See Protocol for more detail.
