Infants and toddlers who exhibit sleep problems--a common issue, any parent will tell you--may have a greater risk of developing sleep disorders later in life, a new study published in the journal Pediatrics has found.  The study reports that one in 10 infants and toddlers fall into the risk category, and urges pediatricians to screen for sleep issues and signs of potential problems, chiefly regular snoring that can signal later onset of obstructive sleep apnea.
