my 5 year old loves to eat healthy food. he likes vegetables, fruits, fresh juices, less junk foods and drinks water a lot. he does play basketball with his dad when he don't have school in our backyard. the only dilemma i have is he doesn't sleep in normal hours. sometimes he stays up around 1am which i believe is alarming. he doesn't sleep right away after 1am. i don't want to believe that my son has insomnia. i don't know how to deal with it. my son is healthy.

There's a lot of things why kids got something like that,maybe they're not comfortable of their bed or they feel hot though the weather is not hot.

Chels,try to get Soya Milk for him or just try to read a bedtime story maybe that could help. :)

Insomnia is a serious problem. If you observe that your baby is getting less than five hours of sleep, then this should cause an alarm. Remember that sleep apnea is possible for infants. Head to your physician for a quick check-up on your baby and follow your doctor's advice. It also won't hurt to add in some extra tender loving care. Soon enough you and your baby would be spending the night quiet and steady.

I have insomnia, so I wouldn't wonder why if my child will soon have it. I am aware that is a bit unhealthy but it is not excessive NO sleep at all. I can handle it. :)

insomnia is a given. i'm glad that i don't have it but my husband has it. when kids has it, it will be tiring and parents worry so much about their child's health. it affects their thinking and growth.

i think its not normal for a child he's so young to have insomnia, let a doctor check him
