Sleep advice for children

If your child's sleep is disturbed at night, it makes it harder for them to function during the day. It also raises the risk of problems with behaviour and learning.

Most sleep problems can be treated or managed.

Evelina London Children's Hospital has produced Kids Sleep Doctor, an app for iPhones and iPads. Kids Sleep Doctor can help you understand your child's sleeping and waking patterns.
