- Babies sleep for about 17 hours each day.
- Older children only need 9 or 10 hours a night.
- Most adults need around 7-8 hours sleep each night.
- Older people need the same amount of sleep, but will often only have one period of deep sleep during the night, usually in the first 3 or 4 hours, after which they wake more easily. We also tend to dream less as we get older.
