Is anyone else having a difficult time to believe that the lazy, hazy, days of summer are coming to end?
Fall always brings busy schedules as the kiddos return to school. As I think back about those days in my home, I remember how challenging the "early mornings" and packed evenings can be. One of the most important things for a smooth transition is an improved FAMILY sleep schedule (Yes, Mom and Dad...for you too!)
After checking in with WebMD.com, I thought I'd share
sleep hour recommendations I found for specific ages:
1-3 years old: 12-14 hours (including naps)
3-6 years old: 10-12 hours
7-12 years old: 10-11 hours
12-18 years old: 8-9 hours
The article I saw didn't have specific information for Mom and Dad. Everything I've read in recent years, sleep recommendations for adults are similar to the 12-18 year old group.
This week, I'll be sharing a few helpful tips on falling asleep quickly, and improving the quality of sleep your family gets. "Talk" to you again soon!
