Your child’s brain rests as well. This means that sleep enables the body to regenerate and to facilitate the immune system operation by the more intense synthesis of immune antibodies.
How much sleep does my child need?
Children’s sleep demand changes depending on their age and development stage. Over time, the total amount of sleep reduces gradually and the night sleep length increases.
