Children’s Naps Effect Their Health

Team HTV Feb 21 2015

According to a recent study, napping beyond the age of 2 is linked to poor sleep quality in young children, although the impact on behavior and development is less clear-cut.

Length/quality of sleep links to child-health, thus it’s encouraged for toddlers to take a nap. By the time a child is 2, he is getting most of his sleep at night. Napping beyond the age of 2 lengthens the amount of time it takes for a child to fall asleep and shortens the overall amount of night-time sleep he/she has. It’s suggested that in pre-school children with sleep problems, it may be worth looking at whether they take regular daytime naps.
