Abstract

Infants with iron deficiency anemia (IDA) and stunting explore and interact less with their environment. They may also be fatigued more often, suggesting their sleep may be affected. It is unclear whether fatigue in these infants is due to poor nighttime sleep or if it is compensated for with frequent naps or longer sleep.
