How much sleep do you and your child really need

[ 0 ] 05/02/2015 |

The National Sleep Foundation has released the updated official recommendations of how much sleep do we, our babies and kids really need. These are the results of a world-class study with 18 leading scientists and researchers working on this for over 2 years. The figures are the result of reviewing over 300 current scientific publications on the subject.

Please keep in mind that our babies, children, and teens need significantly more sleep than us to support their rapid mental and physical development and even as little as 30-60 minutes less sleep can impact them a lot. The National Sleep Foundation recommends for babies and kids that that an early bedtime (between 7:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. works best for babies and kids through school age) and a consistent, soothing, wind-down routine with no screen time—such as TVs, tablets, and the like—will lead to better sleep.
