So people with kids… what is your strategy with time change? The first time the time change mattered to us with Jack was when he was about 9 months old and we were “falling back” in 2010. Fortunately he was already on a schedule and we decided to just move him slowly, so 4 weeks ahead of time we bumped him back 15 minutes at a time. I think last year we took a similar approach only we did it a week out instead of a month. This year we sort of fell into it when on the same day both of the kids magically slept in til 8:10 and 8:20 and I decided DONE!
So I’ve been putting Harper down at like 8:40ish and Jack down around 8:55-9ish and I consider their schedule moved and now I can’t wait for the time to change so I can go ahead and start thinking in normal times and not “well it’s 1 so it would be 12 so we should have lunch” type of things.
But I’m curious about how other parents handle the time change in case there’s a better way and I’m missing it! (Going the other way is easier to me.. just put them to bed earlier and wake them up earlier a few times). And also when they’re older I don’t see myself putting this much effort into it, only since their sleep schedules still seem so delicate sometimes!
