Parents wring their hands over infant sleep patterns. And so when those patterns change, parents tend to panic. But if your baby is sleeping more or napping at weird times, maybe he or she is just growing. So says a study in the journal Sleep.

父母们都对宝宝的睡眠习惯了如指掌。所以,一旦这种习惯改变,难免慌张。但是,如果您的宝宝越来越贪睡了,或者在一般不睡觉的时候睡着了,可能他正在成长。这是《睡眠》杂志的一项研究。[详见米歇尔·兰普尔和迈克尔·约翰逊的论文《睡眠时间影响婴儿长高》]
It’s known that levels of growth hormone rise during certain stages of sleep. So researchers wanted to know more about the link between sleep and growth. They recruited the parents of 23 infants. The parents took careful real-time notes on infant sleep patterns for between four and 17 months. They also noted whether the babies were breast- or bottle-fed, and whether they had signs of illness such as rashes or diarrhea. And the babies’ body length and weight were measured regularly.
据了解,成长激素会在特定的睡眠阶段上升,因此,研究人员想要更深入的了解睡眠和成长之间的关系。他们招募了23名婴儿的父母,让其详细记录了婴儿4至17个月的实时睡眠习惯,同时也记录了这些婴儿是母乳喂养还是奶粉喂养的,以及他们是否有皮疹或腹泻等疾病的迹象。他们定期测量婴儿的身高和体重。

The researchers found that periods where infants slept more overall corresponded with growth spurts and also a gain in weight and body fat. Both genders experienced that correlation, though boys had more and shorter sleep episodes than girls. The scientists note that increases in sleep may lead to increases in waking, as growing bones produce growing pains. So if your baby’s sleeping a little funny, maybe she’s just growing up.
研究人员发现,婴儿“贪睡”的时期,总的来说身体都有成长更快的苗头,同时体重和脂肪增加。男女宝宝都是这样,虽然男宝宝睡得更多,但睡眠时间更短。科学家们指出,睡得越多,当然醒的机会也越多,因为在长骨头的时候,宝宝会有成长的疼痛。所以啊,如果您的宝宝越睡越“搞笑”时,他正在快快成长。
