Take a look at an article I found on the National Sleep foundation's website https://sleepfoundation.org/sleep-topics/children-.... We all know sleep is important.... so why are we still tucking our bedding? Messy sheets = restless sleepers.....it's time to rethink our kids bedding Hint: zippers are not the answer.
Every living creature needs to sleep. It is the primary activity of the brain during early development. Circadian rhythms , or the sleep-wake cycle, are regulated by light and dark and these rhythms take time to develop, resulting in the irregular sleep schedules of newborns. The rhythms begin to develop at about six weeks, and by three to six months most infants have a regular sleep-wake cycle.By the age of two, most children have spent more time asleep than awake and overall, a child will spend 40 percent of his or her childhood asleep. Sleep is especially important for children as it directly impacts mental and physical development.
