Baby Sleep is Affected by Time Changes: Are You Prepared?

Baby Sleep is Affected by Time Changes: Are You Prepared?

Child sleep is sensitive and can easily be negatively affected by time changes. The best way to handle it is by being prepared! And, it's easier than you think. 

SMALL CHANGES, 4 DAYS AHEAD OF TIME

When it comes to 'fall back' - when we change the clocks back in the fall - it's a set of simple 15-minute changes that you start 4 days ahead of time. 

EXAMPLE, IF BEDTIME IS USUALLY AT 7:00 PM

Picture this scenario. Your child usually goes to bed at 7:00 pm, the time change takes effect on a Sunday. You simply make bedtime 15 minutes later each day starting on Wednesday, 4 days before the time change. This is what you do: 

  1. Wednesday night bedtime: 7:15 pm
  2. Thursday night bedtime: 7:30 pm
  3. Friday night bedtime: 7:45 pm
  4. Saturday night bedtime: 8:00 pm
  5. Sunday, change the clocks back one hour and your babe goes to bed at 7:00 pm again!

WHAT ABOUT IF MY CHILD NAPS? 

Same thing! Just push naps 15 minutes later each day, starting 4 days ahead of the time change. Example: Your child naps at 1:00 pm each day. 

  1. Wednesday naptime: 1:15 pm
  2. Thursday naptime: 1:30 pm
  3. Friday naptime: 1:45 pm
  4. Saturday naptime: 2:00 pm
  5. Sunday, change the clocks back one hour and your babe goes for a nap at 1:00 pm again!

A little bit of planning ahead of time will save you a lot of headaches. You've got this, mom and dad!

Sizing

Sizing Your MoBoleez Hat

MoBoleez hats come in two sizes:

The vast majority of mommas are very happy with MoBoleez's sizing but, like all clothing, there will be children on either end of the spectrum (very large or very small for their age) that will not fit into our specified size range. Please take note of whether baby is on either end of the spectrum and order accordingly. If you're not sure, send us an email here and we can help you choose the best size and design for you!

NOTE: As mentioned, please choose your size carefully. If your hat doesn't fit your baby, you can exchange it for a different size directly with MoBoleez. Please see our return policy here
