Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

There is no particular reason for the same. It has been noted that in cases where children are exposed early on to the mobile screen, the sleep cycle may be disturbed. Also, you have to note if the child has any blocked nose or coughing that may be disturbing his sleep. However, if the child is growing well in terms of weight and height, you need not worry.
