How much sleep does your child need by age

I often get asked “how much sleep does my child need?” The answer may surprise you. Babies and children need a significant amount of sleep to support mental and physical development. This chart will help you determine if your little one is getting the restorative sleep they need. Not only is the amount of sleep important but also the time in which your child sleeps is essential. We want to catch a wave of sleepiness as it is forming, avoid catching them too late, as the wave is starting to crash and the child is overtired and harder to soothe. Email me at ali@goodnightsleepsite.com to book your complimentary 15-Minute Initial Consultation and see if your little one is getting the amount of sleep they need for their biological age.
