Daylight Savings Time and Your Child’s Sleep

This Sunday, at 2AM, daylight savings time occurs and we “Spring Forward.”
Parents oftentimes ask me how they should adjust their child’s sleep schedule.
Here is my reply:

Because bedtime relies on parental timing of active/quiet time, bathing, and dinner (and these parental cues are adjusted to the new clock time), then we can disregard the change in clock time.

If 6:30 PM is the right bedtime for your child on Saturday, then 6:30 PM is the right bedtime for your child on Sunday too.

Dr. Weissbluth will be talking about infant sleep today at 1 PM for our New Parent Support Group- all our families are welcome to join.

For the families in our practice, your Sleep Apps should automatically adjust 🙂
