A good night sleep is essential for children’s development. Maintaining continuous sleep is among the developmental tasks of infancy and a pattern valued by parents. Yet, night-waking is common during the early years and most likely serves development. Parents often seek advice not only to ensure that the child is getting a good night sleep but also in order to decrease prolonged nighttime caregiving. In this talk, aspects of children’s and their parent’s needs will be highlighted and finding from a series of studies, including intervention research, will illustrate the interplay between developmental and parenting tasks. Drawing from evolutionary, motivational and neurodevelopmental framework the multiple challenges of nighttime parenting will be discussed.
