Midday Fix: Daylight savings time sleep tips for children

Daylight Savings Time

How to Prepare:

On Saturday, wake your child earlier so they can get to bed earlier (if they usually go to sleep at 7:00 p.m., shift it to 6:45 p.m.)

Shift mealtimes, naps and bedtime

Don’t sweat it if you don’t have time to prepare

To adjust your Child to Daylight Savings Time:

Stick with the same by the clock schedule or move your nap timing a ½ hour to help adjust to the time change.

Expose your child to light in the morning

Lower the lights and allow for a longer bedtime routine

Use blackout shades to help keep the room dark and conducive for sleep
