No napping for kids over two

CHILDREN’S daytime naps should stop at the age of two.

Researchers say new evidence shows that children who take an afternoon nap past the age of two don’t get such good quality night time sleep. Researchers analysed data from 26 studies to find out what impact daytime sleeps had on a child’s night-time sleep quality up to the age of five years old.

They found some evidence indicating that napping beyond the age of two increases the amount of time it takes for a child to fall asleep at night and shortens the overall amount of sleep, but the findings on the impact of napping on behaviour and development are not clear.
