“How much sleep do my kids really need?”

\u201cHow much sleep do my kids really need?\u201d

The most recent sleep guidelines published by The National Sleep Foundation recommend the following:

Toddlers (1 to 2 years): 11-14 hours

Preschoolers (3 to 5 years): 10-13 hours

School-age children up to preteen (6 to 13 years): 9-11 hours

Teens (14 to 17 years): 8-10 hours

These might fluctuate a little from day to day, but they’re a good gauge for what’s healthy for your child’s growth and development. Remember, not getting enough sleep can have serious consequences for kids' ability to learn and develop, and can put them at risk for a variety of diseases like obesity and diabetes later in life.
