Children differ in how much sleep they need, how long it takes them to fall asleep, and how easily they wake up. If you are concerned about your child’s sleep habits, talk with your child’s doctor. Your child’s doctor may ask you to keep a sleep diary to help track your child’s sleep habits.

Here is a sample 1-week chart you can copy and fill in. Fill in the month/date/year under each day of the week. Keep in mind that sleep problems are very common, and with time and help from your child’s doctor, you and your child will overcome them.
