First off, this is a great article, and the sleep test that I was welcomed with had shown that I have a score of 49%, which leaves a lot to be desired for. I am happily married with two kids, that are a 3 year old daughter and 6 month old son. I am not getting enough sleep.

I hope that this is just a phase, but has lasted for years now and we are getting sick a lot, even when our daughter doesn’t go to the kindergarten. So we have to do something.

The improvements offered here are great, and we will try to go to sleep at the same time, and we will change our mattress. Also we should discipline ourselves to disconnect from our electronic devices, which can be a bit difficult, but we have to do something. 

Thank you for the great article.


Sleep is like a superhero for your body. Adults need around seven hours, but it’s okay if you need more – it all depends on the person and their needs. Babies and kids need even more sleep to grow strong – I do remember sleeping more when I was a child. The provided sleep tips are like magic tricks for better sleep. Stick to a routine, make your sleep spot cozy, and avoid screens before bedtime.

Thanks so much for a great article, well-researched and especially the sleep chart. Super helpful. 

I knew how much sleep adults needed and I was on top of healthy sleep habits when my child was young, but I didn’t know how much sleep was optimal for him now that he’s 10-years-old. 

We have just started our long summer school holidays and he is going to sleep way later than usual, especially when he has a friend sleeping over. Am I doing him a disservice by not insisting he sticks to his regular bedtime routine?  

I have been quite lax about sleep time these holidays, thinking I’d let him have his fun, but I don’t want to do that to his detriment.
