View Full Version : Help! Routine change up!
06-17-2009, 12:15 PM
I just started back at work after 3 months of maternity leave and my son is in daycare. He had a good schedule going when he was at home but now he is hardly sleeping while he is at daycare so when he comes home at 3 he wants to sleep all evening. That means that he is hardly sleeping at night when we put him in his crib. Any suggestions on how to get him back on the schedule he had before?

Chances are the daycare is going to run on their own schedule, not his. They can't accommodate every single child's individual schedule. So you probably won't ever get him back on what he was doing before he started daycare. You're going to have to get him to adjust and adapt to a new schedule.
If he needs a nap when he gets home, let him take one, but wake him up after a while, in time for his next scheduled feeding, and keep him up to play and whatever else he used to do in the evenings. Then he should sleep better again at night.
