How many children sleep at 5 years old, preschoolers

The time has passed when the daughter slept all day and night, waking up only to eat and change clothes. With age, her need for sleep decreases and this is normal. And yet, how much should a child sleep at the age of five?

Of course, children do not have to anyone, and even more so to sleep. But despite this, for some reason tables are made, according to which the normal amount of sleep for a five-year-old child is about ten hours a day.

It seems to me that you should not blindly strive for these indicators, because sleep is very individual. All children are different, and the alarm should be sounded only if deviations from the norm are significant.

Recently, I wrote a separate article that daytime sleep is still necessarily present in the daughter mode of the day. And the duration of this dream is rather big – 2-3 hours, no less. And even despite the late morning rise, in the afternoon the daughter herself goes to bed.

Here we have a small failure in the form of a late end, but otherwise it does not work. We usually have a very active evening – here we have gymnastics, and we need to cook dinner, do our homework, play with toys, talk to dad and cartoons … I want to be in time, but time is short. So it turns out a close later, closer to midnight.

This fact is a frequent cause of discontent of my mother. Even though we live separately, she often remembers blaming me for the night in the yard, and the child is still not in bed.

Therefore, in those days when the daughter sleeps with her grandmother, she, to grandmother’s joy, falls asleep already at 22. But she wakes up as early as she falls asleep. And this early rise only pleases the grandmother, neither I nor my husband are among the larks.

Although, even if we take, for example, a break at midnight and our usual rise at 8, it turns out to be quite the normal duration of a night’s sleep – eight hours. And if you add to it 2-3 hours of daytime, sleep, then here’s a figure from the plate – 10-11 hours, which is quite consistent with the norms for a five year old child.

Returning to the beginning of the article, I want to note once again that each child is individual. And if such a regime is convenient for my daughter, then I have absolutely nothing against it. Especially, given the fact that it is convenient and me too.

The children of my friends, despite the same age, sleep in completely different ways. One boy from three years old refused to have a nap, but still lays down late and wakes up early, but the daughter of another girlfriend goes to bed early – no later than 21, wakes up late – as much as the kindergarten allows, and then also sleeps sometimes during the day.

In my child, I immediately see the reasons for lack of sleep – it becomes excessively capricious, the behavior is rapidly deteriorating, I want to call it something, I don’t know what. And if a child is alert, healthy and cheerful, then it only means that he has enough sleep and trying to adjust it to some tables is not worth it.

And how many hours a day do your children sleep?
