Oh Baby! Daylight Savings Time

I received two interesting, but opposite questions yesterday, so decided to answer them in back-to-back blogs.

The first was asking how to handle baby’s schedule on the day we “fall back” and end daylight savings.  Specifically, what should you do about baby’s routine – feedings, naptime and bedtime?

Easy!  Just follow the clock.  Don’t even think about what time it “should be”, just change your clock and do feedings, naps and bedtime according to the “new” time.  Baby might take a few days to adjust, but in my experience, the adjustment is minor.  It helps mom’s sanity not to have to do any math while looking at the clock and it seems that baby has a near seamless transition this way.

And this all goes for toddlers and preschoolers too!
