Sleep Regression vs Sleep Disturbance?
Sleep regression is for a negative change in a baby’s sleep.
Sleep disturbances are medically diagnosed disorders related to all aspects of sleep.
We've prepared categories that focus on how sleep regressions could fit into the whole umbrella of sleep disturbances.
Babies may have a harder falling asleep.
Children may only be getting a fraction of their usual amount of sleep.
Kids are experiencing a disturbed sleep pattern.
This may also be classified as transient or persistent.
Of all of the categories, this one has the least amount of overlap. Even so, during a sleep regression:
Babies experience frequent night wakings.
This group of disorders may not be the strongest fit, either. However, let’s look at the first aspect of this again.
No sync between sleep-wake schedule and real-life work
Babies going through developmental leaps
Children experiencing a normal development of separation anxiety
Children and nightmares make for a long, difficult night
Sleep regressions and sleep disturbances won’t be the same sooner.
Medical studies may catch up to the already-accepted public vernacular – at least as related to sleep regressions, sleep disorders, and sleep disturbances.
