Today marked the start of Daylight Saving Time, which means you had one less hour of sleep last night. But how is it affecting your baby?
Here are some quick tips to adjust to “springing forward:”
Watch baby’s cues – They may be harder to put down at bedtime or wake up when they’re not supposed to and that means they might be cranky and need more naps than usual these next few days. Try to notice when they’re tired before it hits the dreaded “over-tired” phase.
Feeding schedules – Your baby’s feeding schedule might be a bit off with the time change, so be sure to follow their lead when they show signs of hunger.
Shut out the light –Just like it helps adults, making the room darker might be helpful. Room-darkening curtains are a good option in the nursery.
Be patient –Some babies have no problem adjusting to the time change; while others might take a few days. Remember to be patient.
