Ease Into Daylight Savings with Pampers! {Diapers & PJ’s GIVEAWAY!}

The end of Daylight Savings is upon us.  I honestly didn’t even realize it was that time already until Saturday evening when we climbed into bed.  Glad we noticed since my husband had to be at work on Sunday morning… and really, no one wants to arrive at work an hour before they have to be there.

I’ve actually really enjoyed the transition to an earlier sunrise.  Yes…. my child been getting up earlier.  Honestly, though– it’s quite the welcome change.  When we started school several months ago, I wanted to begin our day at 8:00 am each day.  It didn’t take me long to realize that wasn’t going to work.  My child rises with the sun, which was making it’s appearance around the time I was ready to get going with school.

Now, the sun is peeking through the blinds around an hour earlier, which means we’re up and going earlier as well.

That being said… many of my mom friends have been having major issues with the time change.  Their children are getting up earlier as well… much, much earlier.  So, how do you deal with it?  What can you do to get your child back on schedule?

Just know that you aren’t alone.  52% of moms say that their baby’s sleep patterns are thrown off when we “fall back” and daylight savings time ends.  Also know that Pampers is here to help.

Alongside Pampers, sleep expert Kim West has some tips to share to get sleep back on track:

  • Make sure that your children are well-napped during the day so that when the time change takes effect having a later-feeling bedtime isn’t as much of an issue.
  • To help your baby sleep more soundly, consider installing blackout curtains and using a sound machine.
  • Get outside.
  • To ensure that your children know when it’s time to sleep, rely on your established soothing bedtime routine.

If your child is still in diapers then you know– superior wetness protection is a must to ensure a good night’s sleep for your child and you.  Leaky diapers are miserable, and will inevitably interrupt sleep for the entire household.  Pampers Baby Dry Diapers come in sizes 1 through 6 and offer up to TWELVE hours of overnight protection.  A variety of features, including an “Ultra Absorb” core and snug sides ensure the diaper stays in place and gets the job done.

Additionally, one of my favorite tips for a good night’s sleep is always a new pair of pajamas.  This may not be so enticing to an infant… but my daughter has LOVED to get a new pair of pj’s ever since she was very young.  She’s five now and that still holds true.  Something about cozy new pajamas make her more excited to crawl into bed and stay there until morning.

Let’s get Daylight Savings off on the right foot.  One lucky reader is going to win a package of Pampers Baby Dry Diapers AND a new pair of pajamas from The Children’s Place!

    My kids we start by letting them stay up 15 minutes longer each night til the change happened and then got them back on track!

    I let my daughter stay up a little late leading up to the time change, so once the time changes, she’s going to bed at her normal bedtime.

    Since it takes place on the week-end, I always just let them stay up a little later on Fri/Sat nights & then by Sunday & the time change things get backto normal, w/regular bedtime on Sunday night for school on Monday!!! Great review, thanks for the chance!!!!!

    Start the adjustment period a week before 10 minutes a day each way. By the time its the day to change the clocks they are acclimated.

    We didn’t do anything different and had a cranky baby for two days :( Next time we will take a warm bath and use some Aveeno lavender lotion and try to go to bed a little earlier!

    I only have one baby that is 3 months old, so I don’t have any good tips quite yet! :-) Interested to see what everyone else says though.

    I always started early getting them changed to the right time. Putting them to bed a bit ahead for about a week until they were adjusted.

  8. Sandra VanHoey says:

    We had trouble for a few days because instead of waking up at 7 am, they woke at 6am. They finally adjusted but we did keep their same schedule

    We keep the kids up a little later the night it changes, we really haven’t had too many problems they adapt well!!

    we actually kept our kids up past their bedtime the night before the time change, that way they slept in til their “normal time” and napped at the normal time and were ready for bed at their regular time.
