Babies need to sleep because sleep renews energy and their bodies are using up so much energy growing that they could not go a full day without taking naps. So while they are sleeping, their bodies are resting and renewing themselves so they can continue on learning all they are learning and their cells can reproduce and make more bone, skin, hair and anything else that keeps getting bigger as they grow.
