THETFORD, U.K. - Oct. 25, 2019 - PRLog -- How much sleep do our kids need?

The start of a new school, college, or university year brings with it a wealth of new things to get our heads around – this includes new learning schedules, new friends, harder homework, new exam goals, and new social opportunities such as after-school clubs or youth groups. But all this activity and excitement requires a lot of energy, stamina, and a positive mindset… and our ability to perform well in all of these areas is highly dependent on the quality of our sleep.

So, with most kids back to school this September, and older teens off to college and beyond, we've been investigating just how much sleep they need and how parents can help make this happen.

Recent research has found that the minimum sleep required by babies and young children varies from nine to a whopping 17 hours, per night:

•        Newborn to 3 months – between 14 and 17 hours
•        Infants from 4 months to 11 months – between 12 and 15 hours
•        Toddlers (https://www.bestbedsdirect.co.uk/bunk-beds.html), between the ages of one and two – between 11 and 14 hours
•        Pre-schoolers, between the ages of three and five – between 10 and 13 hours
•        School-aged children, between the ages of six and 13 – between 9 and 11 hours

The need for a decent night's kip doesn't stop once they hit the age of 13, either.
