Description

Excerpt: Infant sleep problems increased the odds of childhood overweight (but not obesity) at grade 6. However, the observed associations varied according to the definition of sleep problems used. More research is needed to construct a single definition of infant sleep problems in order to more accurately predict overweight or obesity later in life.
