WHY A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP IS SO IMPORTANT


Well-rested children are healthier and happier. They have more energy and a better starting point for learning, than children who have had a poor night’s sleep.

Our brains aren’t fully developed until the age of 21, and until then a good night’s sleep is one of the brain’s most important building blocks. It is especially necessary for younger children to enjoy a good, long sleep every night.

Your child’s day is filled with new experiences, and at night, your child needs peace and comfort, so that all new impressions can be processed. If your child doesn’t get a good night’s sleep, all the impressions pile up and the brain won’t be ready to welcome the next day’s many experiences.

Quality sleep boosts your child’s ability to focus, remember and be creative, just as sleep is crucial to the successful development of your child’s reading and mental maths skills.

Not enough sleep, poor or restless sleep can soon lead to a significant deterioration of the mental processes going on in your child’s brain, affecting their ability to concentrate and handle challenges.

The younger the child the greater the need for sleep

Children's sleep needs are to some extent individual, but studies show that many children sleep too little. So, the recipe for a good night's sleep often starts with changing the number of hours your child sleeps. The younger the child is, the more sleep he or she needs.

A child of 11 months will typically need to sleep between 12 and 15 hours a day, while a young person of 17 needs to sleep between 8 and 10 hours.


If your child doesn't get enough sleep, you will soon notice a negative development. Your child will learn less and lack concentration.

0-2 months: 14-17 hours
3-11 months: 12-15 hours
1-3 years: 11-14 hours
3-5 years: 10-13 hours
6-13 years: 9-11 hours
14-17 years: 8-10 hours
18+ years: 7-9 hours

HOW TO GIVE YOUR CHILD THE BEST NIGHT’S SLEEP

Children who have been active and had plenty of fresh air during the day will fall asleep easily at night. Similarly, a worry-free day also has a positive impact on the depth and quality of your child’s sleep. YOU CAN ENCOURAGE HEALTHY SLEEPING HABITS BY FOCUSING ON THE FOLLOWING FOUR AREAS: A HEALTHY INDOOR CLIMATE Make sure the bedroom is a nice environment to be in. Air the duvet and pillow before making the bed. The moisture from the mattress can then evaporate, making the indoor climate healthier. Air the bedroom every day and create a comfortable temperature at bedtime – preferably between 18 and 21 degrees. REGULAR BEDTIME ROUTINES Encourage your child to go to bed and wake up at about the same time every day. This helps them develop a natural, regular day rhythm, so they find it easier to relax when going to sleep. COMFORT Choose a mattress, sheet, duvet and pillow that can give your child the best support and comfort. HEALTH AND SAFETY The bed environment must comply with the highest safety requirements and should be free from harmful chemical substances. Ideally, you should choose OEKO-TEX certified products.

Choose the right mattress

Just like good sleeping habits promote good sleep, your child will benefit from a physical bed environment appropriate to their age, size and development.
