How Much Sleep Do I Need?
Sleep guidelines from the National Sleep foundation below have noted that sleep changes as we age, although there is no 'magic number' as individual sleep needs vary.
|(0–2 months)||12–18 hours|
|(3–11 months)||14–15 hours|
|(1–3 years)||12–14 hours|
|(3–5 years)||11–13 hours|
|(5–10 years)||10–11 hours|
