The subject of sleep can often feel undefined or opinionated, and sleep certainly varies by individual. These regular rest patterns change as we develop and age throughout our lifetime. For children, sleep is an undoubtedly important aspect for both mental and physical developments. The earliest years in our lifetimes are the most turbulent in terms of sleep changes, durations, and needs.
