Sleep can be one of the most common areas of concern for parents. Is my baby sleeping enough? Too much? What is the safest way for them to sleep? How do I sleep train?
Every child is different when it comes to sleep. But there are certain principles that can help you understand your baby's sleeping habits. Newborns can sleep up to 17 hours per day, usually in 1-2 hour spurts. As they age, babies require less sleep: about 12 hours or so for a 1-year old. Some will easily transition to sleeping through the night while others may struggle.
