Now, let's talk about a challenge that you and your baby will face annually. It's that special time of year when we all need to adjust our clocks forward, bidding farewell to an hour of precious sleep. But don't fret! We've got three simple steps to help your bundle of joy adjust to the new time and keep that sweet snoozing on track.
Step 1: Take it Slow.
Slow and steady wins the race, right? Start shifting your little one's sleep schedule earlier by 15 minutes each day leading up to the big time change. That way, they won't be in for a shock when the clocks spring forward.
Sun's out, buns out! Make sure to get plenty of sunlight during the day, as it helps regulate our body clocks. Take your little one outside for a stroll, or open up those blinds and let the sunshine in.
Babies thrive on routine, and it's even more important during this time of year. Keep your little one's bedtime routine consistent, even with the time change. This will help them feel secure and ready for a good night's sleep.
There you have it, folks! Three easy peasy steps to help your little one adjust to daylight saving time. So go ahead and enjoy that extra hour of sunlight with your happy and well-adjusted babe by your side. Happy snoozing!
