PREPPING FOR TIME CHANGE
- The Traveling Turtle said... This comment is totally not related to the 45 minute nap but I found myself wondering about time changes. My husband said I was crazy for even thinking about it now, but what do you do with a BW baby when the time changes? How do the schedules relate to that and stay on track? I am thinking mostly of bed time and morning wake ups. We both work, so she has to be awake by a certain time and we have worked her into waking around 7:00-7:15 so we can be to work on time..... but if she wakes at 6:00-6:15 with the time change it will throw it all off. Do you have any advice on this or am I just overly paranoid for no reason?

TIME CHANGE DIFFICULTIES
- Heather said... So sorry to be off the subject, but my question pertains to my 13 month old. She has been greatly affected by the time change, and is getting at least an hour less of sleep at night, as well as taking short (45 minute) naps in the morning and afternoon. Any ideas? Do you think it is all is b/c of the time change, or is something else going on?

Katherine said... Heather I am dealing with the same thing with my 5 month old. He's waking up 1-1.5 hours earlier in the mornings (I just leave him but I hate that he's awake) and his naps are ridiculous. He's waking up 45 minutes into them, fussing for about an hour, and then finally falling back asleep for 45 min-1hour. He used to wake up at 45 minutes and fuss for maybe 5-10 minutes, now it's literally an hour. Will this work itself out if I continue to "ignore" him? I watch him on the video monitor so of course I know he's fine...

heather said... Katherine-Don't you love your video monitor? I don't know what I'd do without it! :) Any luck for you this morning? We were still over an hour early. Will this ever work itself out???? I'm hoping for better naps today.

Katherine said... Oh I really don't know what I'd do w/o the video monitor. It's such a sanity saver! Up early this am, but he actually took a pretty decent morning nap. Working on nap #2 right now. He's in there squealing like a little girl :) It's his newest "skill" haha.

Plowmanators said... Heather, I would bet it is the time change. The short naps are likely because she is getting less sleep at night. See this post: http://babywisemom.blogspot.com/2008/11/time-change-troubleshooting.html
