Healthy Baby Sleep: Basic Rules Healthy baby sleep Fundamental rules As with adults, for toddlers, sleep is a great way to process all the information the brain receives in a day. How much sleep do children need, and what does lack of sleep lead to at a young age? How much do children need to sleep The need for sleep varies with age. Newborns sleep about 20 hours a day, children from 2 to 4 years old - about 16 hours, 4-5 year olds should be provided 13 hours of sleep, children 6-7 years old should sleep 12 hours, and adolescents need 9 hours of sleep.

Then, for a small child, the colors and shapes of the drugs are dangerously reminiscent of some of their favorite treats that may not only poison him, but also suffocate him! To react quickly in the event of an accident, always have the number of the poison control center closest to you handy.



Good use of the first aid kit and medication

The pharmacy should contain everything you need to treat small wounds, some basic medicines that you can use without medical advice, not to mention the medicines that your doctor will have prescribed for you. In use, you should systematically throw away medicines and expired products, and never give on your own initiative those prescribed by the doctor for a disease which seems similar to you.
Moisture and heat can spoil pharmaceuticals. The pharmacy should therefore be in a dry place at room temperature. It should always be placed high up and if possible locked, so that it is out of the reach of children.
