Daytime snooze for kids could spoil peaceful nights

CHILDREN who have daytime naps after they turn two years old could be poorer sleepers at night, new research has found.

The Queensland University of Technology research reviewed 26 global sleep studies related to children five years old or younger.

It found there was "overwhelming evidence of unnecessary napping", with data showing napping after the second birthday lengthened the amount of time it took children to fall asleep at night.

But it found no firm evidence of any effects of napping on behaviour, health or development of children.
