Cause Children Aged 5 Years Can Not Sleep Day And Night?
hello, my child is 5 years old 11 months. It’s been a few days he could not take a nap and sleep … I guess what is the cause huh
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Insomnia is a sleep disorder that can manifest as difficulty starting sleep, waking up during sleep, or waking up too early and not being able to go back to sleep. Insomnia in children can be caused by several possibilities, including:
The child is experiencing certain illnesses (such as having a cold cough, vomiting / diarrhea, an acute asthma attack, infection / itching of the skin), or are taking certain medications that can cause insomnia
Excessive stress on children (for example due to moving house, moving schools, changing situations in the family, conflicts in the family, etc.)
Consumption of foods / drinks that stimulate the brain (such as drinks containing caffeine)
Certain disturbances from the environment, for example rooms that are too noisy, lighting that is too bright, temperatures that are too cold or too hot, etc.
Irregular hours of sleep and sleep
Excessive stimulation before the child sleeps (lots of laughter or running around, including watching TV or playing games on the console or cellphone)
You should try to find a trigger for not being able to sleep your child first. If your child is currently experiencing a particular illness, then after the illness is cured, most likely the insomnia will also recover. If your child is taking certain medications that may have side effects of insomnia, you can consult a doctor who prescribes the drug for possible replacement of the drug. Some other things you can do:
Try to put the child to sleep and wake up at the same time every day
If the child often drinks drinks such as coffee, soft drinks, or energy drinks, stop immediately giving these drinks to children
Condition your child's sleeping environment to be more comfortable for children (darken the room, sleep in a place that is not noisy, set the temperature of the room to be more comfortable, etc.)
Avoid excessive stimulation before bedtime (including do not give too much time watching or playing games before the child sleeps)
Increase physical activity outside the home in the morning and afternoon
If the child's sleep still does not improve, consult a pediatrician for further evaluation and management.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
