    "but I can't figure out the purpose of adding 子." - Do you understand what the 子 means in itself? What do you think the sentence would mean without it? Does it seem grammatical without it? How would you analyze it? Basically - what is your thought process here? In order to properly explain why something is done, we must first understand why you expect it not to be done.

よく寝る is a relative clause, which modifies noun 子.

So whole "よく寝る子だ。" means "(She) is a child, who sleeps well/often."
