How much sleep does a kid need?

While The Parent Panelists and Shevonne Hunt take a week away from the mic, we've got a special episode of a brand new Babyology podcast every parent should listen to.

Ain't That The Truth with paediatric emergency nurse and CPR Kids founder Sarah Hunstead helps sort fact from fiction when it comes to raising a healthy family. This first episode looks at just how much sleep a child needs per day.

Subscribe to Ain't That The Truth wherever you get your podcasts for answers to common parenting questions such as;

  • Are growing pains real?
  • Are leftovers really safe to eat?
  • What should you do if your child chokes?

Subscribe to Ain’t That The Truth, a Babyology podcast. Listen in through your usual podcast app – or online.

And don’t forget you can email the podcast if you’d like to give Dr Google the cold shoulder and get some real talk on your kid-related curly question.
