Optimal sleep is essential to normal growth and development and aids recovery. Studies show that sleep has a role in the development and function of the brain. Sleep deprivation may have negative impact on the health and development of the newborn and lowers the threshold for pain which has been proved in adult sleep deprivation studies. Preterm infants require more than 18 hours sleep per day for normal growth and development. Over 2 million children today have some type of sleep disorder (National Institute of Lung and Heart Disease, 2015). As there are only few studies conducted on effect of nesting on sleeping pattern and physiological parameters and also nurses in NICU are not giving much significance to sleeping pattern of premature infants. So the investigator felt the need to conduct a study on this area of interest.
