Protocol of a jetlag


personal stories

How to explain a 11-months old the concept of time-zones. Exactly. You don’t. So here a little protocol of being 10 hours ahead of time. The usual sleep-rythm is sleeping 10 hours straight in a row between 7pm and 6am the following day.

Day 1:
Slept the night sleep in the plane.
Arriving around 10pm local time.
Went to bed around 11:45pm.
Woke up 1:30am.
Awake until 4:30am.

Slept until 2 pm.
Two naps of 30 min. during the day.
Went to bed at 9:30pm.

Woke up without going back to sleep at 1:30am.
Fell asleep at 5:20am.
Slept until 11:50am.
Then a 1 1/2 hour nap during the day.
Fell asleep at 22:45pm.

Woke up at 2:20 am – not really awake the whole time
Fell back to sleep at 3:45am
Slept until 10am
Two naps during the day 1:30h and 20min.
Fell asleep at 9:30pm

Woke up at 12:20am.
Really angrily awake during 3 1/2 hours.
Started the day at 1pm.
Had two naps of 30 min.

Day 6:
Slept at 12:30am until 11am!!!
One nap of 2 hours.
Fell asleep at 11:20 pm.
Slept until 7:30 am.

Now, after a really tough week for all of us, it seems, that she’s getting back to normal :) we’ve put her now every night a bit earlier to sleep, and that works out fine. Soon we’ll be really back to her normal sleeping rythm :)
