Babies don’t catch on regarding Daylight Saving Time

Daylight Saving Time ended this weekend. And while many in this country issued a huge “yawn of relief” for that extra hour of sleep, that couldn’t be said of our son.

Oliver, it seems, doesn’t have a concept of what Daylight Saving Time means. When 6 p.m. rolled around yesterday, he was ready for a meal and then bed. His little 8-month-old baby brain couldn’t fathom the fact that it was not 7 p.m.

And this morning? He was up and ready to go at 5 a.m., crying out to us with a noise that could be interpreted as, “Mommy and Daddy, come get me. It’s 6 a.m. Time to start the day!”

Hopefully we can get him back on schedule this week. Otherwise, it’s going to be a long winter.

  1. he’ll come around. just try to hold it off a few more minutes each day until he starts to develop the new routine…

  2. He was actually pretty good this morning, so hopefully he’s already got it figured out. Those first couple of mornings were rough!
