BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Randomized trials have demonstrated the short- to medium-term effectiveness of behavioral infant sleep interventions. However, concerns persist that they may harm children’s emotional development and subsequent mental health. This study aimed to determine long-term harms and/or benefits of an infant behavioral sleep program at age 6 years on (1) child, (2) child-parent, and (3) maternal outcomes. METHODS: Three hundred twenty-six children (173 intervention) with… Expand
Behavioral Interventions for Infant Sleep Problems: A Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
Both graduated extinction and bedtime fading provide significant sleep benefits above control, yet convey no adverse stress responses or long-term effects on parent-child attachment or child emotions and behavior. Expand
Behavioral interventions for pediatric insomnia: One treatment may not fit all.
TLDR
Pediatricians should incorporate evaluation of infant separation anxiety to assessment processes, and favor more gentle treatment approaches, such as Camping-out, over Graduated extinction for highly anxious infants. Expand
Behavioral Management of Sleep Problems in Infants Under 6 Months – What Works?
TLDR
Education directed to parents about the use of simple, prescriptive, behavioral techniques is effective in improving infant sleep, and long term follow-up studies have failed to find any negative effects on the child, either from a psychological or physical perspective. Expand
Effect of behavioural-educational intervention on sleep for primiparous women and their infants in early postpartum: multisite randomised controlled trial
TLDR
Evaluated the effectiveness of a behavioural-educational sleep intervention delivered in the early postpartum period in improving maternal and infant sleep in primiparous women and their infants using an internet based randomisation service. Expand
Consistent use of bedtime parenting strategies mediates the effects of sleep education on child sleep: secondary findings from an early-life randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
Investigation of whether parent's consistent use of recommended bedtime strategies with infants was a mediating mechanism for improved child sleep found it to be an important factor that influences child sleep self-control in later development. Expand

TLDR
The findings suggest that parents with low cry tolerance and high distress-attribution cognitions derive less benefit from these interventions, and may thus require augmented care. Expand
A systematic review of prevention and treatment of infant behavioural sleep problems.
TLDR
Some support for short term effects of behavioural treatment strategies were found, but more studies are needed to establish evidence. Expand
The joy of parenting: infant sleep intervention to improve maternal emotional well-being and infant sleep.
TLDR
A single consultation using a behavioural strategy to improve infant sleep was effective in improving infant sleep and in increasing maternal emotional well-being, with a significant increase in the C and P scores, and a significant decrease in the F scores. Expand
Behavioural infant sleep intervention does not have long-lasting effects on children’s emotions or behaviour, or maternal outcomes
TLDR
Children who were randomised into a community-based, behavioural sleep intervention at 8 months showed no long-term adverse consequences on measures of behaviour, psychosocial functioning and salivary cortisol at the age of 6 years when compared with the ‘usual treatment’ group which had also had problematic sleep. Expand
Systematic review and meta-analysis of behavioral interventions for pediatric insomnia.
TLDR
Moderate-level evidence supports behavioral interventions for pediatric insomnia in young children, however, low evidence for children, adolescents, and those with special needs (due to a lack of studies that met inclusion criteria) highlights the need for future research. Expand

Long-term Mother and Child Mental Health Effects of a Population-Based Infant Sleep Intervention: Cluster-Randomized, Controlled Trial
TLDR
The sleep intervention in infancy resulted in sustained positive effects on maternal depression symptoms and found no evidence of longer-term adverse effects on either mothers' parenting practices or children's mental health. Expand
Outcomes of infant sleep problems: a longitudinal study of sleep, behavior, and maternal well-being.
TLDR
Persistence or recurrence of infant sleep problems in the preschool years is common and is associated with slightly higher child behavior problems and maternal depression scores, which suggest that depressive symptoms are a result rather than cause of sleep problems. Expand
Improving infant sleep and maternal mental health: a cluster randomised trial
TLDR
Implementing this sleep intervention may lead to health gains for infants and mothers and resource savings for the healthcare system. Expand
Randomised controlled trial of behavioural infant sleep intervention to improve infant sleep and maternal mood
TLDR
A brief community based sleep intervention based on teaching the controlled crying method effectively decreased infant sleep problems and symptoms of maternal depression, particularly for “depressed” mothers. Expand
Adverse Associations of Sleep Problems in Australian Preschoolers: National Population Study
TLDR
Sleep problems were common, and compared with children without sleep problems, children with sleep problems had poorer child health-related quality of life, more behavior problems, and higher rates of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. Expand
Outcomes of Child Sleep Problems Over the School-Transition Period: Australian Population Longitudinal Study
TLDR
Compared with no sleep problems, persistent and incident sleep problems predicted poorest health-related quality of life, behavior, language, and learning scores, whereas resolving problems showed intermediate outcomes, and randomized, controlled trials could determine if population-based sleep interventions can reduce the prevalence and impact of sleep problems. Expand
Infant sleep problems and postnatal depression: a community-based study.
TLDR
Maternal report of infant sleep problems and depression symptoms are common in middle-class Australian communities and there is a strong association between the 2, even when known depression risk factors are taken into account. Expand
Behavioral treatment of bedtime problems and night wakings in infants and young children.
TLDR
The findings indicate that behavioral therapies produce reliable and durable changes and support is provided for graduated extinction, bedtime fading/positive routines, and scheduled awakenings. Expand
A systematic review of treatments for settling problems and night waking in young children
TLDR
Given the prevalence and persistence of childhood sleep problems and the effects they can have on children and families, treatments that offer long lasting benefits are appealing and these are likely to be behavioural interventions. Expand
A nightly bedtime routine: impact on sleep in young children and maternal mood.
TLDR
It is suggested that instituting a consistent nightly bedtime routine is beneficial in improving multiple aspects of infant and toddler sleep, especially wakefulness after sleep onset and sleep continuity, as well as maternal mood. Expand
