If you’re like me, your transition to standard time might have been a bit (or a lot) of a cluster.
We can’t all be well-organized!
If your child is suddenly waking up in the middle of the night, or crazy early in the morning, don’t despair.
Hope is not lost.
The main thing is, stay consistent. Keep aiming for an early (but adjusted-to-standard-time) bedtime. Wake your child in the morning by 7 am, even on weekends. Keep the midday nap starting between 12-1 pm, regardless of how early your child woke up.
And if your child (still) takes a morning nap, don’t let it get too early, even if your child is waking up quite early in the morning. In most cases, a first nap (after the first four months of life) should be between 8:30 and 9 am.
