Daylight Savings

Spring forward!

Daylight savings time. The dreaded time adjustment that no parent is excited for!
Daylight savings happens during 2 different times during the year
  • Fall
  • Spring

Spring time is the time when we start to get to have more daylight into the evenings! However, the also means during Daylight Savings, we will need to move our clocks forward!

So, on the first day of Daylight Savings, our clocks will go from 7pm to 8pm, but our bodies will still think it is 7 pm!

How do we adjust our child’s internal clock to help make this adjustment?

There are two methods:

  1. Wing it! (If you know me at all, you know I don’t “wing” anything haha)!
  2. Adjust their bedtime schedules a tiny bit every night
How to adjust your child’s schedule the week before DLS:
  • Move your child’s bedtime by 10-15 mins earlier every single night!
    1. This will get them used to going to bed a tiny bit earlier so when that first night of DLS hits, they will already be on that schedule!
Here is an example of what your adjusted schedule the week before Daylight Savings would look like:
