Tips from the Vance County Parenting Task Force
Healthy, happy children need regular sleep.
Most infants sleep a lot. As babies grow older, they sleep less and less. Soon, their routine includes regular time awake combined with naps. Eventually, they no longer need naps.
Children feel best if they have a regular bedtime. Having a bedtime routine helps children settle down and prepare for sleep.
Most children under the age of 12 need 10 to 12 hours of sleep to feel their best.
