Every parent of a toddler is eventually faced with the challenge of moving their little one from two naps down to one. It’s one of the top sleep questions we hear from parents. Before we get into the specifics of an effective and successful nap transition, you should know that I firmly believe that naps are a fundamental component of healthy sleep. A child who gets enough rest during the day will sleep better at night than one who doesn’t.
When everyone is sleeping well with your little one still in a crib, it can be daunting to think about making a change that could disrupt it all. But whether it’s time to move them for their own safety (hello climbers!) or you need the crib for another baby on the way, know that moving your little one from their crib to new bed doesn’t have to be scary. Being prepared for the change is a key factor in making a successful switch, and so we’re sharing tips on what you can do to help things along, even before the crib comes down.

On Sunday, November 4th, clocks go back one hour when Daylight Savings Time ends, and as a result, we gain a bit of extra sleep. Obviously getting more sleep sounds blissful, but it’s not quite so simple if you have young kids. Parents often worry about how it will affect their family’s sleep and wonder when their child will adjust to the new time schedule. The good news is, that when it comes to both the spring and fall time changes, our body clocks will naturally adjust on their own. However, you may need to give your kids a bit of help, which will also make the shift that much easier.
