Numerous studies have shown that sleep is just as important in a child’s development as nutrition.
The National Sleep Foundation compiled two years of research to release a new info graphic on sleep recommendations for each age group. Although it may not seem like they never sleep, newborns should ideally be sleeping between 14 and 17 hours a day.
Sleep recommendations for infants drop slightly to 12 to 15 hours with a maximum of 18 and a minimum of 10.


Preschool age children should be getting a minimum of eight hours of sleep and a maximum of 14.
The recommendation for school age children is that they sleep nine to 11 hours a night with an adequate range going to a minimum of seven and a maximum of 12. A consistent bedtime routine is very important for a child, especially during the school year, so thank you Nicole for your question. Between 4 to 6 years, your child needs 11-13 hours of sleep per night (most children this age don’t take naps).


Emily is 10, by the way, so she needs a good 10 hours of sleep to wake up fresh and alert at 6:30am. Bedtime varies from child to child, mostly depending on their age, but also based on their own individual needs.
