Daylight Savings Time 4 Days Late

I really figured Daylight Savings time was going to screw us up with Ainsley. She is such a scheduled child that I assumed it was going to throw her for a loop.

Sunday morning, she woke up at 7:30. I was psyched. She adjusted. No problems there. That night she went to bed right on time. Sweet. No problems. It wasn't until Tuesday that things went haywire. She has been getting so cranky at 6:00 for the past few nights. She usually goes down at 7:00/7:30. I have had to stretch her through an hour of crankiness for the past 2 nights.

I had heard from a friend of mine that they adjust their children by 10 minutes every night for the whole week before. I always thought that was crazy. Now I'm not so sure.

What does everyone else do? Has anyone ever experienced a delayed reaction?

  1. Instead of 10 minutes every night for the whole week, you could just do 15-30 minutes for 2-4 nights. We never really adjusted Wesley, he just kind of adjusted himself. Since he's two we didn't do anything this time and really the only time we could tell was at naptime. He fell asleep in the nursery during church last Sunday because to his body, it was naptime. Its just like jet lag, eventually your body adjusts to the change - usually in about 5 days.
