Why 20 month don't sleep through the night and what is recommended number of hours for 20months each day? Tia

The average hours a kid between 1-3 years old sleeps is around 12-14 hours. However, the exact hours each kid needs depends on the individual, so it is a case by case basis. As for them not sleeping through the night, from TCM perspective, it may be due to an excess of heat in the heart, which may cause the kid to be overactive in the day and restless at night. You may want to bring him/her over to see TCM and try pediatric tuina which is useful in such situation.
