Pediatric Sleep Expert & Founder Courtney Zentz helps families prepare to fall back this weekend with a clear plan, to avoid sleep regressions, protests, and bedtime challenges that can come with this change.

Tiny Transitions Sleep Consulting is preparing families across the United States for the upcoming end to Daylight Savings, observed November 1, 2020, and means we are set to “fall back” one hour in most states when we wake Sunday morning. This change often brings about a disruption in sleep for many families burdened with sleep challenges in the home. Courtney Zentz, the Founder of Tiny Transitions, and her team of Certified Sleep Consultants across the United States are preparing families for sleep success with a strategy to get through the change.
“Sleep is the foundation for which the house is built,” says Courtney. “Now, more than ever, sleep is critical to maintaining a strong immune system, emotional balance, and peak cognitive function for children and adults.”
Families can choose to adjust before the change, to prepare their body clocks for the adjustment, or after the change takes place. Both take about a week for the body clock to re-align to the new time.
· Before Daylight Savings Preparation: To prepare for the adjustment before Daylight Savings, you are going to push your child’s naps and bedtime 15 minutes later each day until you reach an hour later. This way, you ‘fallback’ to their original bedtime. It takes about a week for the circadian rhythm to adapt and adjust to the change.
· After Daylight Savings Adjustments: You start with changes when you wake Sunday morning. You split the difference and put your child down 30 minutes earlier for naps and bedtime, for four days, as their body will think it’s 30 minutes later. You then go back to the normal time, and again, it will take a week for the circadian rhythm to adjust following the change. Our personal choice is to handle it this way.
