Customized online sleep program helps babies and moms

Posted:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

A new study finds a customized online program reduces sleep problems among infants and toddlers.

Researchers found the length and number of night wakings were cut in half when more than 250 mothers participated in web-based intervention that gave customized advice on how to improve their child's sleep habits.

Their children also took less time to fall asleep and slept more at night.

And the mothers themselves slept longer, better and had fewer symptoms of fatigue and depression than moms who didn't participate in the program.

The customized sleep profile is a free resource from Johnson and Johnson, and can be found by clicking here.

The research was funded by Johnson and Johnson, but the company was not involved with the data analysis or writing of the study.
