Daylight Savings Time is approaching – in less than a week to be exact! Moms, are you ready? Did you know that over half of parents think that the sleep disruptions caused by DST are worse than taxes? Pampers sent along a bundle of items with the time change in mind, and will be sending one to a reader, too!
If you have a baby like mine, OH, that 7-7:30 suggested time in The Sleep Lady’s book is so funny right now (and yes, I’m going to read it, or ask my husband too – you forget a lot in 4 years!). Especially considering that in a week, it’s going to be an hour later on the clock! It’s tough to change baby’s sleep schedule to match our clock-driven ones.
Through Pampers‘ extensive research on sleep, they’ve learned that babies are more vulnerable to waking up when they’re wet. And a dry night means baby is more likely to be more rested, less fussy and more content the next day. This is so true. Baby F is my third and when they don’t sleep at night, it does not mean they sleep more during the day. Pampers diapers provide up to 12 hours of wetness control to help your baby sleep through the night.
The other thing that really helps is allowing your child to develop soothing mechanisms. So far we’re 2-1 thumb suckers vs. pacifiers. My son (aged 4) loves the Cloud B products. LOVES. They really help him to feel comfortable in a darkened room. I won’t like, he has 3 Octo-Lights. And now a Turtle. He was crazy excited about it and goes right to bed knowing that his lights are there if he wakes up scared.
The Cloud B. Constellation Turtle projects soothing non-distracting lights that a baby can gaze at as she falls asleep. Most importantly they turn off automatically after 45 minutes. With older kids you can pick out the constellations, too.
How are you getting ready for Daylight Savings Time with your baby?
