9.) Not sweating the schedule. At home we have a routine and stick to it, but given our short trip and the time change, we threw the schedule out the window and just assumed we’d skip naps, and it ended up working really well. Laurel was still getting up close to Eastern Standard Time in the mornings (ugh!) but then after not napping through the day for the most part, she fell asleep instantly at bedtime. We ended up not really shifting all the way to West Coast time, which made jumping back into the routine at home on our return surprisingly easy.
Happy travels! This adventure boosted my confidence and I'm thinking next stop, Europe!
