All children need between 10 to 11 hours of sleep. Despite this, putting your child to bed can sometimes seem like an impossible task. Unfortunately this doesn't get any easier as your child begins to become more independent.
Ensuring your child has a set bedtime is the best start, as is ensuring they have the right environment in which to sleep. No-one wants to sleep on a bed that isn't right for them and doing so can leave you feeling exhausted and ill tempered. A medium to medium firm mattress provides the right support as your child grows, and helps to prevent stiffness from growing limbs.
