Daylight Saving Time

Daylight Savings Time, DST

Daylight Saving Time, or DST as I like to call it, is every parent’s worst nightmare. Just when you think your child is on a reliable schedule, the clocks change and everyone is thrown for a loop! 

At least with the springtime change, the end result is that your children will sleep “later”. All the grumbling about kids waking up at 4:00 or 5:00 am typically happens in the fall.

The number one question I’m asked by clients and friends is how to handle DST, and my advice might surprise you…

Personally, I like to just do nothing! I don’t bother with shifting the schedule by 15 minutes every other day over the course of a week. 

Frankly, it’s just too confusing and who can keep track. The only thing I really do is continue to wake my children at their typical morning wake time. So on Sunday morning, if your kids are typically up at 7:00 am, they may want to sleep until the clock says 8:00 am. 

In order to keep them on schedule, wake them at 7:00 am even if that means they are a little cranky in the morning. Then simply carry on with your day offering naps at the regular times. Within a few days, your children will be fully adjusted!
