Daylight savings time used to be a fun time when I was a kid. An extra hour of sleep in the fall and an extra hour of daylight in the spring. Now that I am a mother daylight savings time is a time I anticipate a bump in the road for my kids sleeping schedule. We’re lucky that our kids sleep as well as they do; they go to bed at 8pm and get up at 8am. When we know the “change in the clock” is approaching we try hard to adjust their bedtime by 15 minutes each day. After a few days we’ve caught up to the correct time and things seem to be back on track.
One great way to gear my children up for bedtime is by watching the Pajanimals on Sprout TV. If you have never heard of the Pajanimals before I’d highly recommend you check them out. They are soothing and calming and help my children relax and unwind before bedtime. Sprout TV is the only place where you can regularly watch Squacky (the favorite of my twins) and their friends. Furthermore, Sprout TV is the only 24 hour channel dedicated to pre-school television. I love that I never have to worry about what my kids are seeing when we watch Sprout!
Sprout TVs website offers a great collection of tips and tools for dealing with many bedtime issues ranging from dealing with daylight savings time to Dealing with scary dreams.
