The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between caregiver mental illness, breastfeeding frequency and duration, and infant sleep and sensory profiles. Neurotypical infant–maternal dyads took part in the IDAHO Mom Study. The findings suggest that maternal mental health, actual or perceived, has an influence on sensory processing profiles in infants and toddlers.
