Top 3 Tips for an Easy Daylight Savings Clock Change

Daylight Savings is just around the corner, leaving many parents nervous of what's ahead. It can throw a curveball into your baby's sleep routine but don't worry, I am here to help! In this blog, we'll explore my top tips to help your baby transition smoothly to the upcoming clock change.

Tip #1: Stick to Your Routines

A short, sweet, and simple nap and bedtime routine is your secret weapon during the clock change. It serves as a powerful signal that it's time to wind down for sleep.

But remember, it's not a one-time fix. Consistency is key and your baby will start to trust the predictability of it all. Start this routine today with a 15-minute wind down before every nap and a 20-30 minute routine before bedtime each night.

Tip #2: Embrace Natural Sunlight

Harness the power of natural sunlight. What does that mean? Getting outside in the fresh air and the sunshine in the early morning and late afternoon. Whether it's checking the post or taking the dog for a walk first thing in the morning, or enjoying an afternoon tea picnic in the garden, finding ways to soak up that natural sunlight will help baby adjust quicker.

Tip #3: Darkness Matters at Night

Let's talk about the importance of creating a cozy, dark environment at night for your baby's sleep. The clock change can leave your baby feeling tired at the wrong times. Think of a dark room as setting the stage for better sleep.

Investing in blackout blinds is a great solution, but if that's not feasible, get creative! .You can use tin foil, cardboard, or dark-coloured sheets to block out any unwanted light. A darker room helps bore your baby to sleep, no matter the time on the clock.

Armed with three simple strategies you should be well-equipped to navigate the transition to daylight savings smoothly.
