Adjusting Baby to Spring Ahead with Daylight Savings

Adjusting your mind and body to daylight savings time can be rough (especially when new moms are lacking in sleep as it is), but it’s even more important to help baby adjust with ease. So as we prepare to spring ahead this Sunday and lose an hour of sleep, keep these tips in mind for baby’s routine:

  • Start putting baby to sleep 10 minutes early the week leading up to daylight savings. This will help the adjustment seem more gradual.
  • Keep your bedtime behavior consistent.
  • After the change if it’s too light out for baby’s bedtime, try using room-darkening curtains in your nursery.

Like all things, hang in there and you will be just fine. We know one thing is for certain, we sure hope all this mentioning of springing ahead means the spring weather is on the way!
