Spring Forward to a Better Night's Sleep
Daylight savings time change is a perfect time to readjust your child's sleep routine.
Early riser? Don't change their bedtime in real time. If his bedtime is usually 7:00, put him to bed at 8:00 tomorrow, it's the same as tonight on his body clock, but an hour later for you in the morning if he sleeps until the same time in the morning.
A child who usually wakes at 5:30 just might sleep until 6:30 with this change!
