Mayo Clinic Minute: Are Your Kids Getting Enough Sleep?

School-aged children ​need 10 to 12 hours of sleep per night, ​and many children are getting only 7 to 8 hours per night – sometimes even less. Many parents are sleep deprived themselves and think. For one thing, one of the factors that can reduce the immune system’s ability to fight off infections is not getting enough sleep, and as we know, kids in school are constantly exposed to contagious illnesses such as colds from classmates. Lack of sleep in children has also been associated with health problems ranging from obesity to mood swings, as well as cognitive problems that can have an impact on a child. Aim for a bedtime that allows your child to get at least 10 to 11 hours of sleep.

If your child is not going to bed early enough, make bedtime earlier by 15 to 20 minutes every few days. Set a regular sleep schedule. Your child’s bedtime and wake-up time shouldn’t vary by more than 30 to 45 minutes between weeknights and weekends. 12 to 14 hours of sleep in a 24-hour period (including naps) 3to 5-year-olds.

11 to 13 hours a night. 5to 10-year-olds. 10 to 11 hours a night. Tip: Summer break messes up most kids’ sleep schedules. Reset your little one’s body clock now so he’s used to.

Zandieh offers a guideline base d on your child’s behavior: “If a child is 3 years old and doesn’t nap and is a wreck the whole day, then that child still needs a nap.” Having an established sleep routine at night (for example, taking a bath, brushing teeth and reading a book) helps signal the brain that there is about to be a shift to. “Sleep might actually impact a child’s normal development, and this is of great concern to paediatricians.” Read more: Child snoring linked to behaviour problems> Not getting enough sleep also alters the immune system, including an increase in the body’s level of inflammation. If a child gets up early off their own accord, the chances are they’re getting plenty of sleep; if they get up and they’re walking around yawning the rest of the day or have droopy eyelids, they aren’t. Those are the obvious signs.

There are others, however, that aren’t so immediately apparent. Keep your eye out for the. If your child seems to need more or less sleep than the guidelines suggest, don’t worry. ‘Children are all individuals, so don’t get fixated on the recommended number of hours sleep,’ says Vicki Dawson, founder of the Children’s Sleep Charity. ‘The most important thing is a child. So (speaking generally, not in regard to medical issues) the key is to get your child to sleep when they ought to sleep, and keep seeing to it.

Yes, I mean for night time, and yes, I mean for nap time. While each individual child has different sleep needs, the recommended sleep range differs among each age group. Children in elementary and middle school, ages 6 to 12, should get between 9 and 12 hours of sleep.

For teens, ages 13 to 18, the recommendation is 8 to 10 hours of sleep each night.
