Babies sleep a lot because they are growing so fast. They also have many new experiences to go over—people’s faces, voices, colors and shapes, the tastes of foods, or playing with a rattle. Everything is new to a baby. Children from 6 to 12 years old need an average of 10 to 12 hours of sleep. Teenagers need about 9 to 10 hours of sleep. But many teenagers don’t get enough sleep, so they often feel really tired during the day.
