How To Get Through The Clock Change

Autumn can be an excellent time for your little one’s sleep – the darker evenings make it much easier to get a good amount of wind downtime and a peaceful bedtime when it’s dark outside.  

As always, though, there is something that comes along to mess up your well-planned sleep routine! And in Autumn, that can often be the clock changing. This can cause havoc with your little one’s sleep and usually means that you end up getting up even earlier. And no one wants that, particularly if you have an early riser already!

In 2022, the clocks will change in the UK on October 30th at 2 am.

I know that many parents worry and struggle with knowing the best way to deal with time changes like this. But, when you’re sleep-deprived and exhausted, the last thing that you need is something else coming along to mess up sleep even more. It can be especially difficult if you feel like you’ve got into a good routine and are worried about it all going wrong again. If your little one is a very early riser already and you don’t want to deal with an even earlier start to your day.

If you’re already dreading the disruption, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! We’ve put together a handy cheat sheet that will help ease you and your wee one through the time change. I give you a couple of options to decide which one will work best for you, and we even added some sample schedules to keep you on track.

Good luck!
