Spring Ahead is here, and for families on a schedule, this is often a challenging time of year. Babies can be very particular about their schedule, especially babies who have gone through a sleep coaching or routine training program. A time change is the ultimate monkey-wrench in the smooth gears of routine.
You may be thinking, “What am I going to do!? I spent a lot of time getting my baby on this routine, and now it’s going to be all messed up! What does this mean for my sleep?”
Never fear, the Sleep Experts at Concierge Doulas are here to help!
First and foremost, it’s important to recognize that even adults struggle with time change. It’s a bit of a bump in our biological clock, and it takes a few days to adjust. Babies are the same way—you can expect your baby to take about 3 days to adjust to the new time.
In these 3 days, you may notice your baby is more fussy, and may need more reassurance going to sleep. This is normal, and we encourage you to keep your routines as intact as possible, while allowing a bit of room for extra comfort if it is needed.
If you have hired us in the past for sleep coaching services, you can contact your sleep coach with any questions during a transition like this. Your family is unique, and we can help you find what works. Keeping your family happy and well-rested is a priority of ours, and we want to make sure you are getting the support you need.
If you have questions about sleep coaching services and what that entails, give us a call at 866-706-3886. Sleep well, South Florida!
*Sleep coaching services are also available for non-Florida residents! Ask about our travel packages. We can’t wait to serve your family.
