Parents are often baffled by the sleep needs of their children. This is partly because many parents are themselves sleep deprived. But also because sleep needs for children are constantly changing.

Over the years I have answered hundreds of questions happily. But it occurred to me that even when I tell parents the answers to their questions, they often ask again at a later time. So I decided to make a cheat sheet in the form of an info graphic to help parents quickly gauge if their child is getting enough sleep and what to expect at any age.

I hope this proves helpful for many of you. If it is, let me know.
