Argh – the dreaded clock change! But this time around don’t panic! Generally babies & children find the transition when the clocks go forward easier to cope with than when they go back and it rarely takes more than a week for little ones to adjust. Plus, if you have an ‘early riser’ the clock change can actually help move things in the right direction!
Here are some tips should you wish to make the transition a little easier.
On 28th October, the clocks will go back 1 hour as daylight saving time ends. It’s amazing how much just a one-hour change to our daily schedule can fill a parent with dread! Your precious little one, who has been waking between 6-7am will now potentially be starting their day at 5-6am – far too early for most of us. Sadly your little one’s internal body clock won’t change automatically when the household clocks do! Most babies/children will just adjust naturally to the time change after a day or two however, if you want to prepare them in advance, and avoid losing an hour of precious sleep you can follow these simple steps!
