About Sleep

  • Healthy Sleep Habits

    The normal amount of sleep varies depending on the age of your child. A 2-year-old needs 10 to 12 hours a night, plus naps during the day. By age 6, a child usually has dropped naps, but still needs 10 hours at night.

  • Infant Sleep

    If you know anything about your baby’s sleeping pattern, it’s probably that it doesn’t coincide with yours. But learning more about your baby’s nighttime and daytime sleep needs can help you recognize what’s normal—and what’s not.

  • Nightmares and Night Terrors

    A night terror is a partial waking from sleep with behaviors such as screaming, kicking, panic, sleep walking, thrashing, or mumbling.

  • Sleep and Your Child

    Without enough shut-eye, children are more likely to struggle with their school studies, do poorly on the playing field, and suffer depression.
