So I just realized today that we have to put our clocks ahead an hour this weekend. Not a happy time – losing an hour of sleep. Years ago I worried about how it would affect my baby’s night time schedule. I came up with this idea, and it has worked well ever since.
After nap time I move all the clocks forward one hour. That means I lose an hour in the afternoon which isn’t a huge problem since it’s a Saturday. I try to have a laid back day on that particular Saturday. The nice thing is that I don’t get everyone finally wiggled into bed around 8 or 8:30 and realize that I really have to count it as 9 or 9:30. That’s not a nice feeling.
Try this, especially if you have little ones. I think you will find it to be a lifesaver mentally which will affect you positively emotionally and physically too.
Do you have any tips for making this transition easier?
