Healthy Sleep

By Nina Cavalli and the American Academy of Pediatrics

Sleep needs vary from person to person, but there are some guidelines from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine for healthy sleep for infants and children.

The following are guidelines and not absolute times for a 24-hour period. Also, remember these hours include naps in the younger age groups.

  • Infants (4-12 months): 12-18 hours
  • Toddlers (1-2 years): 11- 14 hours
  • Preschoolers (3-5 years): 10-13 hours
  • Grade School- (6-12 years): 9-12 hours
  • Teens (13-18 years): 8-10 hours

The following are tips from the American Academy of Pediatrics and persona- practice for healthy sleeping habits, which have been found to be beneficial.

1. Keep a regular daily routine. This includes daytime activities (meals, activities, play time, etc.) and a bedtime routine.

2. No electronics 1-2 hours before bed. This includes ALL electronic devices such as TV, cell phones, computers…anything with a screen. Al- screens emit blue light, which causes a decrease in a person’s melatonin level (a chemical in our body that helps with sleep).

3. For older children/teens: NO cell phones in bed as this WILL disrupt sleep when they ring in the middle of the night.

4. Be active during the day. Living in Florida, we can be outside most of the year enjoying the fresh air and sunny weather (don’t forget the sunscreen).

5. For older children (>5): No napping during the day/after school. This causes a disruption in the sleep cycle and can cause worsening sleep habits. Instead, let the child go to bed early and try resetting the sleep schedule gradually.

6. Avoid over-scheduling. Take time to wind down and give children the downtime they need.

7. For infants and toddlers: Do not put them to bed with a bottle of juice, milk or formula. Water is okay. Anything other than water can cause tooth decay. Feed or nurse, then put down for sleep.

8. White noise may be helpful for some children as a constant background noise may “lull” a child to sleep. There are free apps that can be used. Do not use music as background.

Parents understand the importance of getting enough sleep and how sleep affects the overall health of their child (and you).

Remember you are the role model for your children and set a good example.

What clients are saying ...

Dr Bob has been seeing my twins since they got out of the NICU and we love him. Very attentive, very nice, knowledgeable and understanding.

We recently moved so now it takes us up to 45 minutes to get there when it used to take us 15 minutes but we’ll never change doctors.

The office is always clean and the staff is super nice, highly recommended

I love Celebration Pediatrics. The office staff is so kind and always willing to accommodate me when I need a last minute appointment or to reschedule. The doctors and nurses are also incredible.

My family loves Dr. Anwer, he is a remarkable doctor. You can tell he is very passionate about his career and genuinely loves his patients which is so important. He doesn’t treat my kids like just another patient but instead takes his time to ask questions and really understand our concerns.

I really could not recommend this office and Doctor enough!

Our daughter said for the first time that she loved going to the doctor and that the doctor was very funny and kind to her, and like a parents made us feel safe, she explained everything to us, the treatment towards us was wonderful, recommended a thousand percent,

Dr. Toma is wonderful. Amazing ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Fantastic doctors, nurses, and staff! Patient, listen, educate, answer every question, and spend adequate time with each patient.

I have found that the doctors at this location are intelligent and educated in a wide realm of topics which makes the experience much richer, especially when it is your first child!

Quick to get patients a visit when needed and we usually don’t wait more than 5-10 min to be seen.

We are very happy and pleased to have found this place for our girls. We have recently moved from another state and the transition to this office was very smooth.

The staff was so helpful in making sure that the needed records for our girls were obtained from our prior provider. Our girls also loved the visit with NP Janil.

Would highly recommend this office.

We had our first newborn appointment at the practice and felt so comfortable. Monica was very easy to talk to and eased some of our little worries as first time parents.

She was patient, sweet, and very knowledgeable!

We left our appointment feeling very secure and with the practice that we chose!
