Here’s how much daily sleep is good for young people


The amount of sleep that young people need daily varies depending on their age. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) recommends the following guidelines for daily sleep duration:

  • Infants (4-12 months): 12-16 hours per day (including naps)
  • Toddlers (1-2 years): 11-14 hours per day (including naps)
  • Preschoolers (3-5 years): 10-13 hours per day (including naps)
  • School-age children (6-12 years): 9-12 hours per day
  • Teenagers (13-18 years): 8-10 hours per day

It’s important to note that individual sleep needs can vary depending on factors such as genetics, lifestyle, and health. It’s also important to prioritize quality sleep by maintaining consistent sleep schedules, creating a comfortable sleep environment, and avoiding activities that can interfere with sleep, such as consuming caffeine or using electronic devices before bedtime.
