We thank all the parents and children who took part in the Infant and Kids Sleep Studies; the Maternal and Child Health nurses from the cities of Bayside, Darebin, Hobson's Bay, Manningham, Monash, and the Shire of Yarra Ranges who helped recruit and deliver the intervention in the Infant Sleep Study; and Lisa Quinn and Emily Roberts for their help with recruitment and data collection. Author contributions and access to data: HH and MW conceived and led the original study, and AP led the six-year-old data collection phase. AP wrote the manuscript with critical input from MW, OU and HH. AP had full access to all the data in the study and takes responsibility for the integrity of the data and the accuracy of the data analysis. Sources of funding and support: The Infant Sleep Study was funded by the Australian National Health & Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Project Grant 237120 and the Pratt Foundation, and the follow-up Kids Sleep Study was funded by the Foundation for Children (Project Grant 180 2009). The authors' work was independent of the funders (the funding source had no involvement). AP was supported by a Melbourne Research Scholarship (The University of Melbourne) and the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute (MCRI), MW by the NHMRC Population Health Career Development Awards #284556 and #546405, and HH's postdoctoral position by the NHMRC Population Health Capacity Building Grant 436914 and Career Development Award 607351. The MCRI administered the grants and provided infrastructural support to its staff but played no role in the conduct or analysis of the trial. MCRI research is supported by the Victorian Government's Operational Infrastructure Support Program.
