Earlier this summer, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine updated their sleep recommendations for kids according to age. Here are the new recommended guidelines for parents, based on a 24-hour period (including nap times):

  • Infants 4-12 months: 12-16 hours of sleep a night
  • Kids 1-2 years of age: 11-14 hours of sleep a night
  • Kids 3-5 years of age: 10-13 hours of sleep a night
  • Kids 6-12 years of age: 9-12 hours of sleep a night
  • Teens 13-18 years of age: 8-10 hours of sleep a night
