(Daily Mail) – A daytime nap is an essential part of every baby’s routine.

It allows newborns and toddlers the downtime they need to cope with crucial physical and mental development that happens in a child’s early years.

But scientists now believe daytime naps are also vital in helping to boost a baby’s memory.

The first study of its kind, carried out by a team at the University of Sheffield and Ruhr University in Bochum, Germany, has identified a link between sleep and babies’ development in their first year of life.

Their findings reveal half an hour’s nap can boost a baby’s memory, helping them retain the new skills they have learned.
