Healthy Sleep: Sleep Schedules

When putting together the components of Healthy Sleep, a sleep schedule plays a very large part. The hours of sleep that your little one needs is also important.  Do you know how much sleep your child needs?

The balance of a sleep schedule and amount of sleep plays along with the other components of healthy sleep:  Sleepy Cues, Sleep Environment. All of these together ensure that your little one is getting the rest that they need.

After your baby reaches 4 months of age it is important to honor their biological clock and get them on a schedule. Before that time, you want to sleep them when they are tired – and they don’t usually stay up for long periods of time.

The below video and images should give you a good idea about how much sleep your little one should be getting – lined out by their age.

The better that we can honor our little ones sleep, the better that they will sleep.
