How can I help her adjust to ending daylight saving time (moving clocks back)?

Adjusting to daylight saving time in the fall (moving the clocks back) can be tough – for you and your baby! To help make the transition a bit easier, start putting your little one to bed 10 to 15 minutes later each night for about a week. In the morning, let him sleep about 10 to 15 minutes later. If he wakes at his typical waketime, limit the amount of light he is exposed to for that 10 to 15 minute period in the morning. Go ahead and expose him to a good amount of daylight when it is actually time for him to wake up to help his body clock understand that it is time to start the day!

If you want more information on what to do when you have to move the clocks forward, check out this post.
