Daylight Savings: Spring Forward and Sleep

Updated: Mar 9

It's daylight savings time again?! Really? Didn't we just turn our clocks backwards yesterday? We think we are getting into a good pattern with our children's sleep and then the clock changes again. So here I am again to share with you how to help your child get through the spring forward time change.

I have good news for you though: while we lose out on an hour of sleep as adults, our children will "sleep later" based on what time the clock reads on the day of the change. So, if your child normally sleeps till 6am, they will sleep until 7am that day 😁 Good stuff, right?! This scenario works really well for kids who are not sleeping until a normal time.
