Is your child having trouble falling asleep and staying asleep? Do you have questions about what to expect with a newborn baby’s sleep schedule? How many naps is enough for a preschooler? Why is sleep important for my child?
All of these are important questions regarding sleep in newborns, infants, toddlers, and preschool age children. Sleep is changing and evolving over the first five years of a child’s life, and it is an important part of their physical, emotional, and psychological development. Understanding what healthy sleep looks like for newborns, infants, toddlers, and preschool age children and why it is important is a great way to not only improve the quality of your child’s sleep, but also the quality of sleep for parents too.
Healthy sleep looks different at different times of early childhood development. To see what healthy sleep looks like at each stage, select the group that most closely matches the age of the child for more information.
