1 Sleep Guru's Advice for Adjusting to Daylight Saving Time
Just when you've got your bub into a regular sleep routine, daylight saving time comes around and everything is turned upside down when the clocks change. It's amazing how one hour's difference can wreak havoc on your carefully calibrated schedule.
To help you try to bring everything back into line, POPSUGAR Australia asked sleep guru Elizabeth Sloane, author of The Gift of Sleep, for her advice on how to adjust to daylight savings. And while she says it can take up to a week to adjust fully, there are a few things you can do to make the transition much easier.
"A lot of mums get very angsty about it, especially if they've got early morning sleepers," says Elizabeth. "Newborn babies are usually not effected by the start or finish of daylight saving time. However, older babies and children can be affected for a week or two and you may have an overtired little one on your hands as a result," she explains on her website. "It's the combination of a change to their body clock and also that they find it harder to fall asleep when it's still light outside!" she adds.
