    Any suggestions on how to help a 13 mo. old with a 3 hour time change? We're coming from the W Coast. We'd love to get to the park early in the day but not sure if we should keep on her normal schedule or try to switch to FL time? Anyone deal with this?

    Hi Heidi - we've traveled with our kids to other time zones before, from the East Coast to the West Coast.  In my experience, my kids can usually deal with about an hour to an hour and a half time change per day.  So, I usually try to adjust them over two to three days.  If you are going for a week or more, I'd definitely suggest switching your child to East Coast time.  Otherwise, it will probably be too confusing to be on West Coast time with the sun rising and setting on East Coast time.

    Have a great vacation!
