Experience of Treatment and Adherence to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia for Patients with Depression: An Interview Study.
CONCLUSION: The study suggests: focusing on adherence throughout treatment; actively using support from relatives and therapists; preferring individual treatment; and prioritizing behavioral treatment components, with cognitive components introduced later in the treatment course when the negative effects on cognitive functioning due to sleep restriction have diminished.

Neighborhood Socio-Economic Factors and Associations with Infant Sleep Health.
Conclusions Consistent with the socio-ecological model of sleep, neighborhood-level, family, and individual factors influence infant sleep health. Policy efforts to increase neighborhood safety and public health initiatives to increase awareness of the importance of sleep could help improve infant sleep health.

Trajectories of Insomnia Symptoms and Associations with Mood and Anxiety from Early Pregnancy to the Postpartum.
CONCLUSIONS: A small group of pregnant women experienced consistently high and elevated insomnia symptoms throughout pregnancy and another larger group endorsed consistently elevated but subthreshold symptoms.

Correlates of Sleep Duration in Early Childhood: A Systematic Review.
CONCLUSIONS: Young children from low-income households, single families, or having overweight parents may be at risk for short sleep duration. Promoting healthy sleep duration from an early age appears essential. Effective practices may include encouraging an earlier bedtime, limiting screen time, and establishing a regular bedtime routine. The absence of consistent evidence in the psychological, cognitive, and emotional domain as well as the physical environmental domain warrants further research.
