How Much Sleep & When

This chart will help you to recognise how much sleep your child needs, on average, at each age bracket.

Also note the ‘Wakeful Window’. This is how long he can manage being awake between sleeps.

This will help you to determine when the optimum time is for getting your child to sleep so that he is just nicely ready for it, not overtired nor under-tired. It is amazing what a difference this makes!
