Kids are so peaceful….when they are sleeping! But how much sleep does your child really need?
According to pediatricians, children between the ages of 3-5 need 10-13 hours of sleep per day. This sleep does not necessarily need to be continuous however. Children at this age usually still nap.
So what’s a good bed time for your preschooler? Well that depends on naps, and what time they get up.
Example: Your child gets up at 7 am. They nap for 2 hours. According to pediatricians, your child should be in bed between 8 and 9 pm.
So how can you help make sure your child is getting enough sleep? Consistent bed times, nap time schedule, and limiting screen time before bed is a great place to start!
