Be Ready For Daylight Savings With A Pampers Sleep Chat & {Pampers Prize Pack Giveaway!}

“This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Pampers. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.”

We have a little joke about Halli being our own little Sleeping Beauty. She goes to bed about 7:30pm, and then sleeps until 8am, sometimes 9am-ish. Then she sleeps again from 1pm-3pm in the afternoon. She puts herself right to bed and it isn’t ever a fight. She loves sleep. Halli has a really big personality. She is sassy, independent, and so energetic. If she gets overly tired look out! Her sassiness turns into full on grumpy monster. With the upcoming Daylight Saving time change I have been a little worried about what it will do to her sleeping routine. Last daylight savings time she was a mess for weeks before she got into her regular schedule. She was so tired and so grumpy so everyone else was a little on edge. Halli loves to sleep, but she desperately NEEDS a good nights sleep as well.

Daylight Saving Time will be here before you know it! It is quickly approaching on March 8th. The traditional “springing forward” is not only on the top of my mind, but for lots of other parents too.  A recent survey conducted by Pampers found that 77% are concerned with Daylight Saving Time affecting their child’s sleep pattern. More than half of parents surveyed dread the anticipated disruption to their child’s sleep schedule more than tax season!

Since Halli sleeps such a long time at night I need a diaper that will keep her dry and leak free. Pampers is the only one we use at night time. It has been the only one to hold up to her long night’s sleep. Another survey conducted by Pampers found that nearly one-quarter of mothers (24%) felt that a dry diaper was the number one thing that enabled their baby to sleep through the night. I use to worry about her waking up wet because her diaper had leaked, but I don’t anymore. Pampers diapers offer up to 12 hours of overnight protection and are up to three times drier than ordinary diapers. Pampers has been leak free every time so she has been able to get a good night sleep. A good night sleep mean Halli will be happy and good to go in the morning for our busy day.

  1. Nici r says

    We have never dealt with time change because we are in AZ. But maybe keep a bed time routine so they still know it is bed time.

  2. Stephanie Phelps says

    My best tip to get kids to sleep during daylight savings is to start the week of putting them down 10 minutes earlier than usual and do this every night by the time it rolls around you will be on track!

  3. Heather Baker says

    Room darkening curtains did the trick for my girls.

  4. Lori Mahan says

    Keep the routine the same, but make sure the curtains are shut if the sun is still shining. I made the mistake- once- of letting my kids stay up until it was dark and talk about a cranky morning.

  5. Rebecca Parsons says

    Having darker curtains and a sound machine always seems to help the sleeping better during daylight savings time.

  6. shelly peterson says

    Daylight savings time hasn’t effected our sleep routine, so we just stick to our normal routine.

  7. vickie couturier says

    we stay on the same schedule,and adjust it some the week before the time changes but usually everything stays the same

  8. Jessica Beard says

    Sticking to the same bedtime routine has always worked for us.

  9. Laura says

    I’m actually pregnant with my first, due in just 9 weeks! I have no tips yet, but I’ve been absorbing as many tips as I can get!

  10. Melissa M says

    We start putting them to bed earlier and earlier each night about 2 weeks before the time change.

  11. Leigh Anne Borders says

    I agree with the statement above and it is what we do. We begin the week before with changing our bedtimes so that it is not too hard to handle when the change occurs.

  12. Claudia says

    we have a regular sleep routine and we don’t really get affective with time savings, thank you!

  13. Betty says

    We used black out curtains when stationed in England. The country is situated much further north and during summer it was not dark until after 10. The best tip I was given was to ease the kids into the change to daylight savings time. Whatever your routine is – bath, teeth, books, arrange it so that the routine is started 5, 10 min earlier each night. By the time we spring forward your kids are going to sleep at least half an hour earlier. That means they may be tired but it is not such a drastic change.

  14. Trisha Burgess says

    I start a week early and adjust each night by 10 mins until we are on schedule for the day of time change!

  15. Michele P says

    I try to get my grandsons accustomed a week or so before it actually happens by putting them to bed earlier and we also do fun activities which tire them out right before bedtime!

  16. Amelia Drew says

    We change our schedule a little every night about a week before the time change

  17. Vanessa Richard says

    darker curtain seems to do it for us my son has never been effected always had dark curtains

  18. Angie says

    It was always hard when they were younger when it was still light out, to make the kids go to bed on time, but i’d take them to the park, etc to tire them out1

  19. sandra says

    we let them stay up a little later so they’ll sleep in

  20. Ann B. says

    I think letting them stay up later works just fine.

  21. Vicki Wurgler says

    we just stick to our normal routine-doesn’t seem to affect us much

  22. Linda Madden says

    Heavy lined drapes helped my babies.

  23. JLin says

    no nap

  24. courtney b says

    read a bedtime story 🙂

    it helps my daughter sleep better…

  25. Amanda Alvarado says

    We keep the same routine and bed time. It hasn’t been too bad adjusting in the past for dd…now I, on the other hand, have a hard time no matter if the routine stays the same or not!

  26. Kenny Hall says

    We use blackout curtains

  27. Devon F says

    Thankfully we never had a problem with transitioning to daylight savings time. Make sure room is dark helped

  28. Em Mahr says

    My best tip is to start the new bedtime and morning routines changes gradually so my little one doesn’t feel the effect of the whole hour all in one night.

  29. Rebecca Orr says

    I don’t think we have ever had an issue with it honestly. But we keep a pretty consistent bedtime routine including warm baths before bed. A warm bath has always made my kiddos sleepy…so it is the best time to do it for us.

  30. Shannon F says

    I usually just stick with our bedtime routines and she doesn’t even notice a difference. lol

  31. Dawn Monroe says

    Change your schedule slowly and block out the light and noise.

  32. sara wood says

    Don’t change anything!! Just put them to bed when you normally do and stick to a routine.

  33. Kristin Goodson says

    We go to bed at the usual time, but maybe a little earlier if possible! My son usually adapts to the change well.

  34. Stacey b says

    Slowly start adjusting their sleep schedule a week prior to the time change!

  35. Alina Hahn says

    We try to start the bedtime process earlier than normal – kind of ease our son into going to bed. Turn off the lights, lower the sound on the tv, etc. We also try to keep him busier during the day too.

  36. Julie L says

    We go to bed about 15 min earlier for a few days to make up the time difference. And blackout curtains make a world of difference too!

  37. Amanda Boerst says

    We gradually put him to be sooner/later before the actual time change and that seems to help quite a bit

  38. We have dark curtains in her room & we try to put her to bed a little earlier.

  39. Nannypanpan says

    I make sure the curtains are drawn so it’s dark in the room yr round for sleep

  40. Cynthia R says

    We pull their dark curtains tight, when they see the light they think it’s still awake time. Also as the time change nears we get them to bed a little earlier each night until we are nearly correct when the time change comes.

  41. Terri S. says

    We have a bedtime routine with our 2 granddaughters: bath, brushing teeth, reading a story and saying bedtime prayers. They both have very busy days and are pretty exhausted by bedtime so the time change doesn’t really affect them.

  42. Kristi C says

    We use blackout curtains and try to keep household noises at a lower level until the younger ones have adjusted.

  43. I gradually send them to bed earlier the week before daylight savings time.

  44. Julie says

    We use a black out curtain as well as a white noise machine for both of the kiddos. It seems to work and the time change doesn’t affect the kids. Julie

  45. brittany says

    my tip would be to just keep the same routine the same and that way they dont get confused. Try what you can to keep it around the same time.

  46. Anita k says

    This will be the first time,so we are reading all the great advice and try our best.thanks so very much for sharing.

  47. darby says

    I am not due until June-so I suppose I will know in a year!

  48. shirley says

    We never have trouble with time change the kids never seem to notice.

  49. I always keep the same routine. That way my kids don’t get all mixed up which ends up with some cranky kids!

  50. Elizabeth says

    Start sending them to bed earlier so they fall asleep at the normal time.

  51. Ellie Wright says

    My kids have a routine bedtime, but we do have dark window curtains, so the change in time does not bother them.

  52. christine j says

    i make sure my kids get plenty of rest

  53. Tina Konegan says

    I let them go to sleep when they were tired even if it was an hour earlier

  54. Sharon Kaminski says

    My best tip for the baby sleeping is playing some lullaby music.

  55. Sara says

    We use light blocking shades all year so it isnt as big of an adjustment

  56. McKim says

    We always do a warm bath and reading in bed to slow them down.

  57. Tarah says

    Black out liners for the windows, so at least it’s dark in their room, if not outside.

  58. Cheryl Larimer says

    Add room darkening curtains to his room and add extra activities to tire him out.

  59. Margaret Maggie Porter says

    blackout curtains work wonders!

  60. Brittney House says

    We gradually get them into bed earlier.

  61. Darlene Carbajal says

    I don’t know how to answer this questions since I have no kids, but thanks!

  62. Janet W. says

    One of my best tips is to have a sound machine, so no matter what time of year it is, the sound will always make them feel sleepy and ready for bed!

  63. stacey trim (@trimgirl) says

    Keep the room as dark as you can

  64. Katy P says

    I honestly don’t have any tips. It throws my children off every time. We just slowly try to work the bedtime up over a few weeks after the change.

  65. Sumeet B says

    I start about a week earlier and change their bedtimes by about 15 minutes each day

  66. Stephanie Galbraith says

    You can tire them out, that is usually your best bet.

  67. Amanda B says

    I don’t have a great daylight savings tip. We always just wing it. If it requires planning, it doesn’t happen in my house. That’s just how we roll.

  68. Shannon says

    We’ve actually been liking the time change for our baby. Now rather than waking up at 5am he wakes up at 6am the new time. I am hoping he doesn’t adjust

  69. Heather in VA says

    I’ve thankfully never had trouble with my girls waking early or not wanting to go to sleep. They are both great sleepers.

  70. thalia h says

    my way of making sure that time change doesnt affect my baby that much is holding off on naptime till almost bedtime and it usually works well. i just keep them entertained through the day 🙂

  71. Christine says

    We don’t change anything. Stick to our normal routine.
    Thanks for the chance!

  72. shaunie says

    Go to sleep an hour or two earlier than normally

  73. Dijah W says

    We tend to wake them up an hour earlier. It’s easy since it’s light outside when they get up. They fall into a regular routine that way.

  74. Nipa says

    I just let the kids adjust themselves and go with normal routine

  75. Lesley F says

    We have never had a problem with the time change. We just stick to our schedule

  76. Lisa L says

    My tip is to stick to the same wake/bed routines and change it a few minutes each day until daylight savings

  77. trixx says

    A few nights before, adjust wakeup/bedtime to the new schedule to let your child get used to the change

  78. Theresa Smith says

    Just having a little shorter nap seems to do the trick.

  79. Mary Rutter says

    Just the same routine. I never had to adjust the time.

  80. Starla B says

    What a wonderful prize pack. I usually just start the schedule a few days ahead of when time change is supposed to happen. That way, no surprises will happen. Everything will already be routine!

  81. just shut the drapes and relax. thankyou, ken

  82. We haven’t really had issues but I think sticking to a schedule and routine is key!

  83. Mary Anderson says

    I make the bedroom as dark as possible.

  84. Lisa V. says

    My daughter didn’t know the difference and neither does my grandchild.

  85. Erica B. says

    Put them to bed early.

  86. Laurie Emerson says

    I moved dinner up an hour. This way they have plenty of time to play before bath time and are ready to go to sleep.

  87. Stephanie Larison says

    A bath before bedtime, with lavender soap works great!

  88. Breanne says

    Start making bedtime earlier and earlier the week before.

  89. Kaitlin says

    I’m pregnant with my first baby so I know I will encounter the daylight savings time in my near future! I will either put my baby to bed early or later to adjust to the time change.

  90. Tina Reynolds says

    We keep a bedtime and do a warm bath before bed

  91. Erika says

    Start the adjustment a week or so early! With my daughter, it takes time for the adjustment, so we start our bedtime routine a little earlier than what we normally would. Warm bath, warm bottle, cozy PJ’s, her fave teddie bear, dark curtains, a sound machine, and snuggles!

  92. daisy says

    read a bedtime story

  93. Carolyn Daley says

    Start introducing your child to the time change little by little during the week until they are adjusted. You can always darken the room.

  94. Samantha says

    We gradually change her bedtime earlier and earlier each day until the actual change!

  95. Jennifer Herman says

    The best tip I can offer is to keep it nice and quiet.

  96. Jackie says

    White noise machine!

  97. John Herman says

    Mae sure that the room is quiet and the shades are dark in color.
