Scale validity was performed using its content analysis, translation, and reliability by Pearson coefficient. Results: The results showed that infants in sleep state had maximum rate of light sleep 3.65±3.27 and minimum rate of deep sleep 0.24±1.05 and in wake state had maximum rate of active awake 1.90±2.09 and minimum rate of quietly awake 0.18±0.68. Also Infants had states with stress 7.75±1.96 more than states without stress 3.65±3.27.
