Average sleep needs


Please note that the ranges and totals given below are approximate, and that some children need less sleep while others need more. When helping your child learn how to sleep, you’ll want to shoot for the minimum of 11 hours at night and one hour for each nap. Paying attention to your child’s mood and behavior is the best gauge of whether your child is getting the right amount of sleep.
