OBJECTIVE. Our goal was to describe the variability of sleep duration (time in bed per 24 hours) in healthy children from 1 to 10 years of age in comparison with growth measures. METHODS. A total of 305 children were followed with structured sleep-related interviews and measurements of height and weight 12, 18, and 24 months after birth and then at annual intervals until 10 years of age. SD scores were calculated, and smooth curves were fitted by smoothing splines through the SD scores. The… 
The stability of sleep patterns in children 3 to 7 years of age.
TLDR
Sleep patterns in children are not particularly stable, showing considerable variation both within a week and across the years, yet characterization of these children might provide further information regarding how sleep benefits health.
An actigraphic study of the sleep patterns of younger and older school-age children.
TLDR
The objective of this study was to document the duration, schedule, variability, and week versus weekend discrepancies of sleep in three distinct age groups within the school-age period.
Trajectories and stability of self‐reported short sleep duration from adolescence to adulthood
TLDR
Habitual short sleep duration during middle adulthood is not sustained from the time of early adolescence, rather, these trends appear to be formed during early adulthood.
Sleep patterns and their age-related changes in elementary-school children.
TLDR
Older children sleep less than younger children; the main reason is late bedtimes, which may be due to socio-cultural factors, high levels of nighttime and recreational activities, and/or excessive academic activities.
Association between sleep duration and intelligence scores in healthy children.
TLDR
The results argue for an extension of the original theory-referring not only to daytime but also to nighttime behavior, which concludes that children with higher daytime cognitive efficiency show increased nighttime efficiency (reflected by shorter sleep duration).
Stability and change in daytime and nighttime sleep in children attending daycare
Many young children experience insufficient or poor quality sleep, which may have implications for adjustment and cognitive performance. This study tested group-level changes and rank-order stability
Normative developmental trajectories of actigraphic sleep variables during the preschool period: A three‐wave longitudinal study
TLDR
This study is the first to model the developmental trajectories followed by several sleep variables during the preschool period and shows a linear decrease of daytime, total, and nighttime sleep duration, and a linear increase of sleep efficiency and proportion of nighttime to total sleep.
Sleep and physical growth in infants during the first 6 months
TLDR
It is suggested that sleep is related significantly to physical growth as early as in the first months of life, supporting increasing evidence from recent studies demonstrating a link between short sleep duration and weight gain and obesity in young children.
Actigraphic sleep and developmental progress of one-year-old infants
The aims of this study were to pilot methods to monitor the sleep of infants, as well as explore the relationships between infant sleep and physical, cognitive and motor development. Fifty-two
Infant growth in length follows prolonged sleep and increased naps.
TLDR
Sleeping and length growth are temporally related biological processes, suggesting an integrated anabolic system, and infant behavioral state changes may reflect biological mechanisms underlying the timing and control of human growth.

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 late
Sleep habits and height at ages 5 to 11.
TLDR
It was shown that there was a weak negative association between sleep duration and height, and variation in sleep duration between children is unlikely to have an important influence on growth.
A Longitudinal Study of Bed Sharing and Sleep Problems Among Swiss Children in the First 10 Years of Life
TLDR
Developmental changes in separation-attachment processes, cognitive capabilities to develop self-recognition and nighttime fears, and motor locomotion may contribute to the particular age trend of night wakings and bed sharing during early childhood.
Short-term and long-term variability of standard deviation scores for size in children
TLDR
Girls' SDS scores have significantly more long-term variability than those of boys, while there is no significant difference between the sexes for short- term variability.

TLDR
Comparison of the growth standards of healthy Swiss children born 1954-1956 with those of previous Swiss studies and of recent foreign studies revealed only minor differences.

TLDR
The decline of slow-wave sleep during adolescence may reflect developmental changes of the brain rather than changes of sleep regulatory processes.

TLDR
Maturational changes of homeostatic sleep regulation are permissive of the sleep phase delay in the course of adolescence as well as aspects of sleep homeostasis.

TLDR
Severe sleep problems were found to be correlated with parental worries and anxiety concerning infant health, infant feeding problems and intensive parental interventional behaviour during the evening and night.

TLDR
The results indicate a sex difference in the association between sleep problems and pubertal development among females, and there was a significant increase in sleep problems with increasing puberal development score, but not among males.
