Sleep disorders in children

Everyones body uses the circadian method, which is based on a 24 hour cycle that regulates our bodies during the day and night. 

However sometimes this cycle can be disrupted by many external factors. Children are particularly sensitive to these disruptions because they do not control their environment .

These are some of the factors that can disrupt a childs sleep.

  • Diseases of the ENT or digestive sphere
  •  Changes in the daily schedule (sleep  travel sickness)
  • lifestyle (diet too sweet, lack of physical activity, blue lights before bedtime …)
  • their bedroom  (temperature, lights, noise …)
  • Family or school issues (disputes, illnesses, bad report cards …)

Causes of sleep disorders
When a child is confronted with one or more of these external factors, their  sleep can be affected in several ways:

Difficulty falling asleep
The child is reluctant to go to bed or tosses and turns . Or is overtired and crys.

Dreams and nightmares are a way for the child’s brain to integrate all the information received during the day. However, if nightmares are happening way too much and result in not being able to fall asleep , they can affect the quality of sleep.

Night terrors
Night terrors take place during the phases of deep sleep and without the child waking up. However, like nightmares, they can make it harder for them to get back to bed.
