A Sleep Schedule for
BabyFrom Infancy Up
By CARRY CLEVELAND MTER5, n.D.
The very young baby ought to
sleep practically all tbe time when
not being fed or bathed; at two or
three months, nineteen to twenty
hour; at aix months he should
sleep about twelve hours at nitrht
with only one regular raterrup
tioa at night for feeding. He
should alio have, both morning
and afternoon, a nap of about two
hours each period. These naps,
which may grow shorter, should
continue at the age of a year, with
twelve-honr oenod at night.
Later the morning nap may
grow shorter and shorter until it
is finally abandoned at the age of
two or so. Thereafter until school
interrupts, the afternoon nap ia
Nothing ia so essential to good
sleeping habits as strict regular

may entirely upset them. A sepa

should be enough cotton pads and
blankets so these articles need
never be left wet after the baby's
elothing have been changed.
Well Ventilated Room
The temperature ot the sleeping
room should if possible not be over
60 degrees, but well ventilated
without drafts. The windows
should be open all night, prefer
ably with a canvass screen.
