How Much Sleep Your Baby Needs

02 September, 2018 | DD Staff

Babies need structured sleep schedules to thrive and also for healthy brain development. Children are different and your baby may need more or less sleep than his or her peers. But it is important to have a general idea of how much they need and how their patterns change as they grow older.

Download our Guide To Baby Sleep and be a step ahead of the curve. Also read sleep consultant Julie Mallon's article 'Hear My Cry' to know more about the role a father can play in his child's growth and development.

Always consult with a qualified medical professional or childcare expert when taking important decisions regarding your child and their health.
