My 4.5 year old boy only sleeps 9-10 hours the most a day, no naps, is that enough? What about yours? Thanks for sharing!

Sleeping Concern

Yes, 4 year olds need 9-12 hours of sleep each night so I think that is fine :)

I think so too. I'm a bit concerned with this question.

I am so jealous. I wish I could sleep nine or ten hours.
Young children, especially infants and toddlers, should sleep more than us adults. Once the child reaches your son's age, like 4 or 4 and a half years old, they start requiring less sleep. 9 or 10 is more than enough. Now, if you are tired and need a nap and you can't because your boy is awake, that is a different problem. Maybe make him sleep less at night so he would want to nap during the course of the day. Also, he is approaching school age and you could get an hour or two while he is there,

"Only", that's quite a bit. I'm not understanding, what is the problem?

I think for kids at 4 years old should have 10-12 hours of sleep a day. But as they grow, they require less sleep.

You've never met a teenager than. They could sleep all day if we let them.
