Day 160 - Switching the schedule

Today's First Time Parenting Tip - Move schedule times by 10 minute increments for success

The time might come when you have to move your baby's bedtime or feeding time for whatever reason. Either you're going back to work, have a change in your daily routine, or you realize that putting him to bed at 7:00 is just to early for you.

Rather than trying to force the issue cold turkey and cause yourself and your kid a bunch of stress, try moving the schedule times in 10 minute increments. For instance, if you want him up later and going to bed later, move all his feedings and routines up 10 minutes. Repeat until you're on the schedule you want. It's pretty simple. You can also spread out feedings or move naps using the same tactic.
