In the beginning of May I will be traveling with my 3 month old back to the states. How on earth do you switch a 3 month old time wise. 13 hours seems impossible as it completely switches night and day! I also want to know how flying that far with a young baby is. I know there are people out there who have done this and can help out a worried first time mom! Thanks!
I made the move here with a just-turned-two-year-old and I won’t lie to you, it was tricky trying to get her to switch day for night. For a while she was waking up for the day at 3 or 4 am. But so were we. One day she fell asleep for her “nap” at 2pm and didn’t wake up until midnight that night! Of course then she thought it was morning and asked for breakfast. Even at age 2 she wouldn’t listen to reason– she slept when she was tired, she was awake when she wasn’t. I think it was about two weeks until she seemed to finally adjust to the new time zone. I can’t say I did anything special to make that happen. Not sure there is anything I could do. It might just take some time. But if anyone has any tips to help make a smooth transition, please share!
