This Sunday, Daylight Savings Time ends, and for parents, it can be a nightmare. I know that Ziggy has a hard time adjusting to the time change. He has a hard time sleeping and there are many tears, form him and me. There’s lots of babywearing, and pacing the floors while holding him in my arms, trying to get him to sleep.

There are some great tips from Kim West, aka, “The Sleep Lady” to help ease you through this rough transition. Some of her incredibly helpful tips include-

– To help your baby sleep more soundly, consider installing blackout curtains and using a sound machine. Although the days are getting shorter, there may still be some natural light present, especially in the morning as well as noise when you put your baby to bed. To mitigate these, install blackout curtains and use a sound machine to help buffer outside light and sound. Black out shades are great for children with early rising issues, which is often a problem after the fall time change, especially if your child was already getting up before 6:00 a.m.

– Get outside. It’s getting colder, so bundle everyone up and take a morning walk, just 20 or 30 minutes to make sure that you and your baby get some sunshine, which will help your circadian rhythm adjust to the time change. If you can’t manage a morning walk, make sure that the blinds are open as you start your day, and keep them open up to 45 minutes before nap and bedtimes to help your child adjust to the time change.

– To ensure that your children know when it’s time to sleep, rely on your established soothing bedtime routine. Routines are comforting for children, so make sure that you keep your baby’s routine the same, although you will be starting it a bit later due to the time change. Make sure that you are changing your baby’s diaper right before you tuck them into the crib to help prevent wet diapers at night and unnecessary nighttime awakenings. If your baby often has diapers that leak during the night and require a change, please make sure to use overnight diapers that can keep your baby dry for up to 12 hours to help limit your baby’s sleep disturbances.

While we used to cloth diaper, we stopped when we started on the potty training journey. There were too few diapers getting wet or soiled for me to be doing a load a diapers every three days. We made the switch to disposable diapers for night time, and I’ll be honest, I was quiet concerned. We still cosleep, so a diaper leak would be a major inconvenience all the way around.

Ziggy and Pampers

Ziggy loves his new Pampers Baby Dry and his new PJs, but just wants me to put the camera down and pick the book up so we can go upstairs to bed!
