Gratisun.site - Sleep Foundation reported, most babies up to the age of one year will nap 1-4 times a day to meet their sleep needs. But when brain development has reached maturity, the less nap time the child needs.

This condition is the reason children aged 18-24 months only need one nap every day. They usually take an early nap with a duration of less than an hour. Research shows that the reduced duration of naps will make children sleep better at night.

Yes Moms, children under the age of five are still in dire need of a nap even though the duration has been reduced. Moreover, some toddlers often experience problems such as waking up or difficulty sleeping at night. Napping will help toddlers get their energy back after sleep deprivation the night before.


At what age do children need to take a nap?

Well, as explained earlier that every child's sleep needs are different, then there is actually no right age until when the child still needs a nap. A journal published in Oxford Academic shows that 60 per cent of three- and four-year-olds still need a nap but the rest don't. Most importantly, just make sure the child's sleep time can be fulfilled according to his age.

However, there are some signs that can indicate if the child still needs enough nap time. For example, when a child's behavior changes negatively at night, such as being more irritable and fussy. Then when the child looks very tired after a full day of activity, be it learning or playing.

If this is the case, then the little one certainly still needs his nap time, Moms. Lack of sleep will actually have a negative impact on the child's emotions. Allow children to nap but by reducing their duration slightly to help them prepare for the transition from their long nap habits.
