Daylight Savings: Sleep Tips to SPRING FORWARD!
On Sunday March 10, we will be moving the clocks forward one hour. This can be exhausting for our littles! On average, most kids + adults will lose 40 minutes of sleep night one.
A few sleep tips to help manage:
1. Starting tomorrow [Wednesday], you can adjust your baby’s clock for naps + sleep by 15 minutes per day. By Sunday, your child will be fully adjusted to the new time. This means waking + putting baby down 15 minutes earlier per day.
2. Do nothing, roll with the time change and expect a little bit on wonky sleep.
* Remember to spend the next few nights this week getting a full, good night’s rest. This will be especially important leading into next week.
* After Sunday, take your little one out for a walk first thing in the morning to expose him/her to the morning sun. This will help promote sleep!
Good news is, spring is finally upon us!!
