SIESTA

Project SIESTA (Study of Infants’ Emergent Sleep Trajectories)is a longitudinal study of (1) linkages between infant sleep quality during the first two years and infant socioemotional development (e.g., quality of infant-parent attachments, infant behavior problems and behavioral competencies); (2) how parenting of infants at bedtime and night time (from video-recordings), beginning at 1 month of age through 24 months, affects the development of infant sleep quality over time.
