Have you ever laid tossing and turning just because of the annoying pain in your neck or shoulder? Have you noticed why this happens when you lay down to sleep after a long busy day? 

Your sleeping position may be the culprit of this ache, and you might want to consider some painfree sleeping positions. Best sleep positions will reduce  shoulder pain, and you will wake up happy in the morning. Sleeping in the right way will support the body correctly, and you will be able to have a restful night sleep.

If you are experiencing pain in your shoulders,  my recommended sleeping positions are

  • Back Sleeping Position
  • Semi-Fetal Sleep Position
  • Freefall Position
  • Starfish Position

No one can deny the role of sufficient deep sleep in a child’s mental and physical development. Every parent  knows how imperative it is for children to have a deep sleep. If for any reason, a child does not get proper and deep sleep, he will throw endless tantrums, be super cranky and not even eat properly.

Sleep requirement for children varies according to age.

  • Babies between 4 and 12 months should stay asleep for 12 to 16 hours.
  • Toddlers between 1-2 year should sleep between 10 and 13 hours a day.
  • Children between 6-12 years should ideally get 9 to 12 hours of deep sleep.
  • Teenagers aged 13 to 18 years should sleep 8 to 10 hours a day.
