Although this is the time change when we lose an hour of precious sleep, it also has many benefits.
For our little early risers it means they will naturally sleep an hour later. (yay!) This will be the case for a while until their bodies get used to the new rhythm and daylight pattern.
Another benefit to this transition is that we don’t need to make any schedule adjustments to prepare for this time change. Since the only real change you will see in your child is their wake time, we use it to our advantage. For babies who are on a 2 nap/day schedule, keep nap times more or less the same (around 2 hours after wake) For babies who naturally wake later, (around 7am) they will now be waking closer to 8 am. This might shift their nap schedule an hour later for a bit but it will eventually regulate as their wake time naturally moves earlier.
Bedtime can be kept relatively the same, and as always should reflect the quality of day sleep your child has had. If you think your child could benefit from the extra hour of sleep go ahead and use it to your advantage!
