Some people say that the human body has the strongest growth hormone secretion at 21: 00 ~ 1: 00 a.m. and 5: 00 ~ 7: 00 in the early morning. Keeping your baby asleep during these two periods will allow your baby to grow taller. Is that right?
In fact, this is only a very preliminary scientific result. For the interpretation of these scientific research results, we can only understand that this phenomenon was found in the group that participated in the research. But we cannot apply these preliminary scientific research results to all groups of people and extend this to make a conclusion that sleeping during these two time periods will make people taller.
What Time is the Best Time for the Baby to Sleep at Night?
What time is the best time for the baby to sleep at night? To answer this question, we must first figure out what time does the baby get up.
Because sleep does have a certain relationship with the height of the human body. But this relationship is mainly reflected in the total amount of sleep. That is to say, as long as to ensure the total amount of sleep in a day is enough, the baby’s height potential can be guaranteed.
But if the baby’s long-term lack of sleep or suffers from sleep deprivation, it will not only affect the baby’s height and growth, but also affect other aspects of health.
And with the growth of age, the total amount of sleep the baby needs every day is constantly changing. And each baby has individual differences.
Take Children Aged 3 to 5 Years Old as an Example
Children between 3 to 5 years old need a total of about 10-13 hours of sleep every day. In order to facilitate easy and simple memory, it takes about 12 hours. If the child does not take a nap during the day and wakes up at 8 in the morning, then he will fall asleep at about 8 in the evening, so that he can guarantee 12 hours of sleep, which meets the overall requirements.
But sometimes it’s not easy for parents to judge the child’s sleep by getting up and falling asleep, we can observe the baby’s mental state during the day. If the state is good and the baby is very energetic, it usually means that the baby’s sleep is enough.
There is no need to be too entangled with preliminary scientific research information such as the most vigorous growth hormone secretion from 21:00 to 1:00 in the evening and 5:00 to 7:00 in the morning. In order to make the child grows tall and maximizes his height potential, what parents can do is to ensure that the child has enough total sleep every day. And each child’s sleep needs are very different. Usually if the child is in a good mood and full of energy when he is awake, that means his sleep is basically enough.
