Navigating Your Child's Sleep Schedule at the End of Daylight Savings Time

Navigating Your Child's Sleep Schedule at the End of Daylight Savings Time

Remember the good old days before you had kids when you looked forward to the clocks “falling back”? 

Before you became a parent, the time change meant that you could sleep an extra hour before work on Monday. No need to hit the snooze button. Leisurely watching the morning news in bed. An extra cup of coffee. 

Let’s take a moment to savor those memories before we process what the end of daylight savings time means for your child’s sleep schedule.

Daylight Savings Time Sleep Tips

It’s that time of year again - time to spring your clocks forward this Sunday.  I know that some of you are panicking about how the time change will affect your child’s sleep schedule.  No need to worry because I have your back!  Here are some simple techniques that will help make your child’s adjustment to the new time as easy as the spring breeze…..

Step 1 - Do nothing.  I recommend not changing your clocks Saturday night.  Instead, wake-up, drink your coffee (if you’re lucky), eat breakfast and then adjust the clocks.  That way your family will gradually adjust to the new time throughout the day as opposed to being smacked in the face by it on Sunday morning.
