BACKGROUND Duration and quality of sleep affect child development and health. [...] Key MethodDESIGN This study is a systematic review of published, original research articles of any design. SUBJECTS Children aged 0-5 years. Expand
Systematic review of the relationships between sleep duration and health indicators in the early years (0–4 years)
TLDR
Despite important limitations in the available evidence, longer sleep duration was generally associated with better body composition, emotional regulation, and growth in children aged 0 to 4 years. Expand
Daytime napping in preschool-aged children; is it to be encouraged?
  • L. Wiggs
  • Medicine
  • Archives of Disease in Childhood
  • 2015
TLDR
Experimental work does support the idea that there are certainly, frequently bi-directional and reciprocal, causal relationships between child sleep patterns and aspects of both child and parent neurobehavioural functioning and health. Expand
Many naps, one nap, none: A systematic review and meta-analysis of napping patterns in children 0-12 years.
TLDR
Global evidence regarding napping patterns in childhood is examined, and patterns of napping cessation and duration observed in children aged 0-12 y are described, to focus on understanding of the underlying mechanisms explaining individual variations in napper patterns and the extent to which patterns ofnapping may represent a marker of child development. Expand
Correlates of Sleep Duration in Early Childhood: A Systematic Review
TLDR
Young children from low-income households, single families, or having overweight parents may be at risk for short sleep duration because of the absence of consistent evidence in the psychological, cognitive, and emotional domain as well as the physical environmental domain. Expand
Associations between sleep duration, adiposity indicators, and cognitive development in young children.
TLDR
Promoting longer total sleep, including more than nine hours of nighttime sleep, appears important for maintaining healthy adiposity levels in young children and cessation of napping may be associated with better working memory in preschoolers. Expand
A review of developmental consequences of poor sleep in childhood.
TLDR
In conclusion, poor sleep can no longer be disregarded, yet methodologies that are more rigorous and a scope beyond health may foster a better understanding of the role of (poor) sleep across childhood neurodevelopment. Expand
Sleep and its relation to cognition and behaviour in preschool‐aged children of the general population: a systematic review
TLDR
Results point to an association between sleep, behaviour and cognition as early as preschool years, but the strengths of associations reported in the articles were relatively small, and thus require large sample sizes to ensure statistical detection power. Expand
What parents want: parent preference regarding sleep for their preschool child when attending early care and education.
TLDR
A disjuncture between parent preferences and current sleep policy and practices in ECE is highlighted, which will guide appropriate practice and support parent-educator communication regarding sleep and rest. Expand
Investigating the association between sleep parameters and the weight status of children: night sleep duration matters☆,☆☆
TLDR
Night sleep duration is a consistent independent predictor of body mass in young children and is identified as a complex relationship between sleep and body mass that implicates sex. Expand
Midday napping in children: Associations between nap frequency and duration across cognitive, positive psychological well-being, behavioral, and metabolic health outcomes.
TLDR
Overall, napping was significantly associated with higher happiness, grit, and self-control, reduced internalizing behavior problem, higher verbal IQs, and better academic achievement, although specific patterns varied across frequency and duration for different outcomes. Expand

Meta-analysis of short sleep duration and obesity in children and adults.
TLDR
Cross-sectional studies from around the world show a consistent increased risk of obesity amongst short sleepers in children and adults, and a estimate of the risk is obtained. Expand
A case-crossover study of sleep and childhood injury.
TLDR
The findings show that inadequate sleep duration and lack of daytime naps are transient exposures that may increase the risk of injury among children. Expand
Associations between sleep duration patterns and overweight/obesity at age 6.
TLDR
Persistently short sleep duration (<10 h) during early childhood significantly increases the risk of excess weight or obesity in childhood, and appears to be independent of other obesogenic factors. Expand
Sleep and obesity in preschool children.
TLDR
Short sleep duration is positively associated with obesity in preschool children, and short nighttimeSleep duration is significantly related to bedtime and co-sleeping with caregivers. Expand
Sleep deprivation and accidental fall risk in children.
TLDR
This study is the largest so far to assess the association between sleep deprivation and childhood injury and evidences a protective effect of naps in children. Expand
Shortened nighttime sleep duration in early life and subsequent childhood obesity.
TLDR
Shortened sleep duration in early life is a modifiable risk factor with important implications for obesity prevention and treatment and napping does not appear to be a substitute for nighttime sleep in terms of obesity prevention. Expand
Adverse Associations of Infant and Child Sleep Problems and Parent Health: An Australian Population Study
TLDR
Examination of relationships between child sleep problems and maternal and paternal mental health and general well-being in each of the infant and preschool-aged groups found infant sleep problems are strongly associated with poorer maternal mental health. Expand
A Study of the Association between Sleep Habits and Problematic Behaviors in Preschool Children
TLDR
Although nocturnal sleep, nap, and total sleep duration did not correlate with total CBCL score, it showed a high positive correlation with wake‐ up times, bedtimes, and ranges of variation in both wake‐up and bed times. Expand
Sleep duration from infancy to adolescence: reference values and generational trends.
OBJECTIVE The main purpose of the present study was to calculate percentile curves for total sleep duration per 24 hours, for nighttime and for daytime sleep duration from early infancy to lateExpand
Relationship between sleep/wake patterns, temperament and overall development in term infants over the first year of life.
TLDR
It is suggested that concerns regarding sleep characteristics should become a significant aspect of clinical assessment and diagnosis of developmental delay or behaviour problems, particularly in the first year of life. Expand
