daylight savings sleep tips – spring ahead!

March 6th, 2009

Wohoo!  It’s time for more day light!  I know this means one less hour of sleep on Saturday night, BUT it could mean little junior sleeps in an “extra” hour too!  Here are my tips on handling this transition (which is MUCH easier than the fall time change).

1. Put your child to bed on Saturday night at the usual bedtime.

2. Change your clocks so they are one hour ahead.

3. Set your alarm to get you up at the usual wake up time and wake your child up to start the day (this means one less hour of sleep for your child).  OR, for those early risers, let them sleep in and take this opportunity to get them on a slightly later schedule.

4. Put your child down for naps and bedtime according to the time on the clock.
