The 1st study of its kind measuring the link between daily growth  and sleep show the two are inextricably linked. Details are reported in  the journal Sleep.
Specifically, growth spurts are tied to an increase in total daily  hours of sleep as well as an increase in the number of daily sleep  bouts, the time from the onset of sleep until awakening.
“Little is known about the biology of growth spurts,” says Michelle  Lampl, the study’s lead author and professor of anthropology at Emory University.
