Survey Says: Parents Need Help With Sleepless Infants
A new study is being put forward by the University of British Columbia to gather data on the patterns and solutions of living with a sleepless infant. The intent of the study is to help parents cope with babies who have trouble sleeping through the night.
Offering Canadians tips for keeping their youngsters asleep, can improve the sleep patterns of the entire family. This can eliminate large amounts of stress that accumulate when family members are unable to acquire eight hours of uninterrupted rest.
240 families are being recruited for the 2 1/2 year program titled, ‘Rocky Sleep Study.’
The lead researcher is Wendy Hall, a nursing professor at UBC. Hall has studied similar programs in Australia that attempted to educate parents on the 24-hour cycle of baby care. She also did a pilot study in 2004 with 40 families in Vancouver.
With her new plan, Hall will be able to accumulate much more data for finding similarities in the successful patterns of parents who are able to deal with restless infants.
Simmons Mattress Gallery is always in favour of improving sleep patterns. We wish Wendy all the best in her efforts.
