Abstract
Night waking and crying are very common in infancy and can cause problems for parents and families. This study surveyed 218 healthy Korean infants from 3 months to 2 years old to determine their night waking and crying patterns. On average, 83% awoke and 28% cried more than once per night. Ninety-eight percent of the babies slept with a member of the family. Infants with transitional objects or nighttime habits (e.g., finger sucking, touching and/or playing with mother's or own hair, touching a part of mother's or own body) cried more frequently. In terms of the maternal response toward the crying babies, most of the mothers used traditional methods, such as patting/holding, feeding, changing diapers. Only one mother ignored the crying baby, and none used medication, delayed response, or white noise. Sixteen percent of the mothers indicated that their babies' crying constituted a problem for them.
