We have just returned from holidays where the time was 4 hours behind.
DD was having a nap at 330-430pm there and so now goes down at 730-830pm.but then stays up til midnight... Am I right to do the routine I want where to follow back home ie last night we did bath and story at usual 7pm time or should I be just letting her stay up until she is tired and gradually work backwards???!
Anyone with any experience or advice, I'd be really grateful
When we came back off hols in the summer it took about 3 daýs to get the boys back into a normal routine. We had a five hour behind difference to make up and rhe first few days they were going to bed about 9.30 but within 3 days was back to 7.30. A good idea to wake them at roughly the normal time in the morning no matter when they went to sleep this will make them more likely to go to bed earlier
I travel a lot (and don't have the luxury of having jet lag as I have to work when I get there and be mum and work when I get home) and I swear by keeping strictly to the time zone you are in. Its important to get as much sunlight as possible too. Get out in the afternoon and give dd as much exercise as possible so she's nice and tired from the fresh air
