A recent long-term study found that toddlers who slept less than 10 hours per night or had many night-time wake ups tended to have more emotional and behavioral problems at age 5. Another popular study found that 69% of children suffer from one or more sleep problems a few nights per week. Typical sleep requirements for children are as follows: newborns should be getting 16-18 hours, children aged 2-10 should get up to 10 hours and adolescents need 8-9 hours of sleep.
