Abstract

This study examined breastfeeding and sleep in 77 dyads of mothers and infants 6-11 months old. Data revealed no significant difference in sleep patterns between breastfed and non-breastfed infants. Controlling for variables including breastfeeding status, only infant nighttime sleep duration was significant in predicting maternal short sleep duration.
