Daylight Savings Time Sleep Tips + Pampers Giveaway

This review was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Pampers. I was provided the featured product free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine.


Daylight Savings Time is right around the corner. We Fall Back on Sunday, November 2 at 2:00 a.m. and time changes can be a mom's worst nightmare. Messing up the sleep schedule we have worked so hard to achieve is frustrating for everyone, baby included. Don't worry, I have a few tips to help you through it.

Did you know that Pampers has done extensive research on sleep and they've learned that babies are more vulnerable to waking up when they're wet? Unlike other diapers that offer two layers, Pampers diapers have three absorbent layers that provide up to 12 hours of overnight dryness protection. It's Pampers hope to minimize sleep disruptions so that little ones get the sweet slumber they deserve and need!

According to the 2013 survey conducted by Pampers, almost one-quarter of moms (24%) felt that a dry diaper was the number one thing that enabled their baby to sleep through the night. As moms, we know the importance of sleep (we never get enough for ourselves) and it affects our children's physical and cognitive development, sociability and the really important day-to-day mood. That's why Pampers is so committed to keeping our babies dry through the most important parts of their day: love, play and sleep.

Daylight Savings Time Adjustment Tips
  • Start Early - Putting baby to be a few minutes later (earlier in spring) each night the week before the time change makes it a gradual adjustment
  • Keep It Dark - Blackout curtains are a mom's bff, they come in many price points, colors and sizes. Ever notice how you sleep in later in a hotel?
  • Noise - White noise seems to make everyone sleep a little sounder, even the simple sound of a running fan can improve sleep and block out noise
  • Routine - Continue your regular routine, just move a few minutes each day
  • Patience - Regardless of how you prepare the adjustment to take a little longer than planned
Join me for for a #PampersSleepChat on Wednesday October 29th at 9pm EST with sleep expert, Kim West (@TheSleepLady) to learn some tips for helping ease the transition and then, how Pampers diapers provide the superior overnight protection that can keep little ones asleep for longer.

  4. Keeping to a schedule seems to be key. Not feeling a wet diaper lets the child sleep and the parent as well.

  5. The spring time change always seemed to affect our family more than the fall one. We just try to stay really active on the Sunday when the time switches, and it helps us all to be tired when it's bedtime.

  44. Well, I have to say that I hate it getting dark so early, but once the change happens I like the fact that it is light in the morning earlier. I don't have any tips on how to adjust, I just make more comfort foods to ease the transition.

  45. The week before the time change move bed time up or back 10 minutes a day -- by the end of the week you will be adjusted to the new time.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I don't really have one-it has never been too hard for us

    ReplyDelete
  47. I really don't do anything...just accept it.

    ReplyDelete
  48. We try to do a little later bed time on the night before the time change. that first night is usually the worst. Our girls wake up ridiculously early the first morning, but adjust pretty well after that!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Adjust in increments, an hour can be a lot for a child, break it down into 15 or 20 minute increments.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Best advice is to try and keep to the regular schedule/routine as much as possible. I was worried that my son would wake up super early, but he didn't! Our 6 month old on the other hand....she gave us an early start! Julie smartsavvymama@gmail.com
