Why Do Babies Need More Sleep Then Grown Ups?
Babies require more sleep than adults. The smaller the baby the more sleep they need.
When babies are little they do nothing but sleep and eat. They are always growing while they are sleeping. Young children also grow but not as fast as babies. They don’t need as much sleep as a baby, but they do need more sleep then adults.
Grown ups need sleep for a period of rest for their bodies. While they are sleeping the cells that a worn are being replaced. As long as they get more sleep, grown ups are ready for work the next day.
The bodies of grown ups only need food for energy. But bodies of babies need food for growing bones and muscles. Bodies of babies also need food for energy when they start turning 2 and 3.
