This was back in the end of October on daylight saving. It’s coming up again but this one is the good one. The only difference in my advice would be to do the opposite. Start by following the new clock and then put your child down for naps and bedtime a half hour later (which, by the old clock is a half hour earlier then you would normally put him down). Slowly adjust those nap times and bedtime back to the original time as the wake time becomes more likes it’s norm. So for example: in the past, your child took a nap at 9am and 1pm and went to bed at 7pm. On the first day of the time change this will be the new schedule: 9:30, 1:30 and 7:30. We are only stretching the time by a half hour so it’s something but it’s not too much for the child to tolerate and eventually over a couple of days you can push it a little bit earlier and as the wake time becomes normal.
