The National Sleep Foundation just issued new recommendations for how many hours of sleep infants, children, and adults need as they age. That’s critical information for parents. The announcement gives us all the chance to take stock of sleep habits in our own homes: Is your child getting enough? Take a look:

  • Newborn (0-3 months) 14-17 hours
  • Infants (4-11 months) 12-15 hours
  • Toddlers (1-2 years) 11-14 hours
  • Preschoolers (3-5 years) 10-13 hours
  • School age (6-13 years) 9-11 hours
  • Teens (14-17) 8-10 hours
  • Young adults (18-25) 7-9 hours
  • Adults (26-64) 7-9 hours
