It’s daylight saving time again. This Sunday at 2 a.m., the clocks jump ahead one hour to extend daylight hours.

OHSU Doernbecher pediatrician and children’s sleep specialist Elizabeth Super, M.D., has some suggestions for making the transition easier for kids and their parents:

  • Shift children’s sleep schedules slowly, moving their bedtime up in 15-minute increments each day leading up to the clock change.
  • Try to get as much light and exercise possible during the day.
