Background and Objective: Sleep problems can result in a wide range of negative consequences, including inattention and behavioral problems, such as irritability, emotional instability, hyperactivity, as well as poor academic performance. The present study aimed to investigate sleep habits and effective factors influencing them among children admitted to the pediatric wards of Be’sat Hospital in Hamadan in 2019.

Sampling was performed via convenience method in different shifts based on inclusion criteria. Data were collected and completed using Children's Sleep Habits Questionnaire and demographic information form in the form of interviews with children and parents. Data were analyzed in SPSS software (version 23) using t-test and chi-square.
Results: Based on the obtained results,  15.5%, 69.95%, and 14.55% of the children had good poor had very poor sleep habits, respectively. There was a statistically significant relationship between sleep time and daytime sleepiness (P=0.000) so that children who slept late were more sleepy during the day. There was a statistically significant relationship between sleepiness and waking up in the morning (P=0.000) so that children who woke up early were more sleepy during the day. There was a statistically significant relationship between sleepiness and sleeping behavior (P=0.000) so that children who did not have a proper sleep-wake pattern were more sleepy during the day. There was a statistically significant relationship between mother's education and waking up (P=0.000) so that children whose mothers had an academic education had a better sleep-wake patterns and their waking time was later than other children.
Conclusion: As evidenced by the results of the present study, children's sleep habits are influenced by various factors, such as parents 'sleep habits, parents' hours of sleep, and waking up  time.
