Birth to Two Months What parents should expect. Most newborn babies have many sleep periods over the course of a twenty-four-hour day, most of which last between a half hour and three hours. As the newborn does not distinguish between day and Sleep Through the Stages of Life 17 night, there are many awakenings for the baby and the parent throughout a typical night. By six weeks, nighttime sleep episodes become longer and a more regular sleep pattern usually begins. The baby will sleep a total of fourteen and a half hours on average, with the range being between ten to eighteen hours.

If the baby turns blue, get medical help immediately as this is a sign of low blood oxygen. One to Three Years By one year of age, children are still napping but most of their sleep is now occurring at night. Naps are generally quite regular. By the age of three, these naps are shorter, and by the time the child is five years old, naps are generally not needed. Four to Thirteen Years Children in this age group need at least two to three hours more sleep than adults (see Chapter 1). Over the years, I have seen several families who brought in children that were falling asleep in class; they could not understand it because the child was getting as much sleep as they were.

On school nights, it may take them several hours to fall asleep, leaving a teen unable to get the approximate eight to ten hours of sleep he or she needs to wake on time and be alert throughout the day. A mother may find herself dragging an unwilling and unresponsive teenager out of bed. Thus, for the first few hours of the schoolday, a teenager may seem to be in a daze or may actually be asleep and consequently might perform very poorly. On weekends, these teenagers generally sleep until noon or even much later.
