  • Sleep and Your 1- to 3-Month-Old

  • Sleep and Your 4- to 7-Month-Old
    By this age, your baby should be on the way toward an established sleep pattern, including several naps a day and at least 7 or 8 hours of sleep at night.
  • Sleep and Your 8- to 12-Month-Old
    Certain sleep problems may crop up as your child approaches the first birthday, often due to his or her increased awareness of "separateness" from you.
