Everyone is affected by the time changes we have twice a year, but I’m always excited for the spring ahead change. Not only do we gain more daylight hours, but that means that spring is around the corner! Unfortunately not everyone is excited about these time changes. It can throw off routines, make for ineffective workers for a few days, and create some really cranky kids! There are ways to get your kids ready for time changes about a week leading up to the big day.
The way we prepare for time changes varies on the season. In the fall we turn the clocks back by 1 hour, so a week before the time change we put the kids to bed 10 minutes earlier each night. By the time the week is up, the hour is made up for and they have already adjusted by taking these small steps. In the spring, we do the opposite. Since we turn the clocks ahead by one hour, we put the kids to be 10 minutes later each day for a week leading up to the time change. Sounds easy? Well, it is! The mornings take a little more time to adjust, but by making small changes to their routine each night, it’s not so bad. We even adjust dinner time to accommodate the changes.
Pampers knows that any change in routine can be difficult for younger children as well as their parents. This year, Daylight Savings time is March 8, 2015. Keeping your baby dry during these changes may help ensure a better night of sleep for everyone. Pampers Baby Dry keeps them dry for up to 12 hours, making it a great solution for nighttime wetness protection.
