Newborns (0-3 months):
 ideal for a newborn baby to sleep 14 to 17 hours a day, but from 11 to 13 hours can be enough. Newborns are advised not to sleep more than 19 hours
Infants (4-11 months): 
recommended time between 12-15 hours. At least 10 hours of sleep may be enough. Babies should never sleep more than 18 hours.

children in this age group are recommended to sleep 11-14 hours, but the accepted range is 9-16 hours.
