So. How did the switch to Daylight Savings time go for you? Please put your observational data, including anything you did to ease the transition and whether it worked or not, in the comments. Don't forget to put your child's age, and anything else relevant (normal bedtimes and waking times, how many times your kid normally wakes up, etc.)
8-year-old: Did not want to go to sleep at the normal bedtime for 4-5 days. Woke up an hour later than usual for the first 2 days. No other symptoms. (Bedtime at 8:30, wakes on his own any time between 6:30 and 7, no night wakings.)
Almost-5-year-old: Did not want to go to sleep at the normal bedtime for 7-8 days. Woke upan hour later than usual for the first 4 days. No other symptoms.
(Bedtime at 8:30, wakes on his own around 7. No night wakings.)
37-year-old: Could not fall asleep before 1 for the first 4-5 days. Could not, for the life of me, wake up when my alarm went off at 6:15 for the first week, and still struggling with it, although I can fall asleep at night now.
Please participate so we can see if particular ages are more susceptible to the spring change vs. the fall change. Thank you!
