END OF DAYLIGHT SAVINGS
With the end of Daylight Savings coming this week, it can make things really tricky
You asked, and we listened, here is our sleep solution for DS ending.
The “THE TRADE OFF”.
You simply need to trade off in 15 min increments till you have made up the hour you are going to lose with the end of Daylight Savings.
So STARTING TONIGHT at Sleeptime
If your child usually goes to bed at 7pm for example. Tonight push it out 15 minutes later to 7:15pm.
The morning after push wake up time 15 minutes later, so if it was usually 7am wake up will now be 7:15am. Push any nap time forward by 15 minutes. (So if 1st Nap is at 9:30 make it 9:45- shift everything by 15 min forward.)
At this sleep time push it forward another fifteen minutes( half an hour later than the normal 7:00pm) so that sleep time is now at 7:30pm.
Wake up is pushed also another 15 min so it is now (half an hour later)7:30am. All naps should be starting now 30 min later.
Tonight push sleep time forward another 15 min so sleep time will now be 7:45pm (45 min later than normal).
Push wake up time forward 15 min, so it will be 45 min later than normal (7:45am). All naps should be pushed forward too another 15 min, (45 min later from normal nap time.)
Push sleeptime forward another 15 min. This will mean you have “traded” a full hour that will be lost. Instead of the normal bedtime at 7pm it will be a full hour later at 8pm.
Wake up is pushed forward a full hr so it will be 8am wake up now. All naps should be an hr later than normal time.
NIGHT 5 (Saturday)
Bedtime is at 8pm tonight. Before you go to bed tonight turn clocks back an hour. When you wake up in the morning your little one will wake at the new normal time of 7am.
