Good Sleep Patterns For Children Aged 19 Months?
Hello, my child is 19 months old, habit of sleeping in the morning at 9.30 till.d. 12.00 even more about 2-3 hours, Because I wake up sometimes at 7 or 8, and sleep at night at 9 or 10 at night, is that a good sleep time for my child? Because I worry that this will be able to disrupt its development, Please enlighten me,
Thank you for the question.
At the age of 19 months, naturally the baby will sleep for 10 to 13 hours. At this age, babies are also generally able to adapt well to changes in day and night, so that their night's sleep will be longer (usually in the range of 9-12 hours) and more restful than in the daytime (usually between 1-4 hours). There is no standard at what time babies should sleep and wake up in their daily lives. However, it will be much better if he is accustomed to going to bed early (before 9-10 o'clock at night), so that he is more refreshed when he wakes up in the morning and can do his activities better.
With regard to the condition of your baby, apparently there is nothing you need to worry about considering the pattern of sleep is good enough. What needs to be improved is how to keep your baby from sleeping too late at night. Besides not being good for growth and development, this certainly can also make you tired when taking care of your baby.
So, as little as possible, try to get your baby to wake up early or limit his nap time. In addition, also encourage your baby to be active in the afternoon, so that at night, he can more easily sleepy and sleep more soundly.
That's all our explanation. For more details, try to consult further with your doctor or pediatrician.
I hope this helps.
