This is What Toddler Jet Lag Looks Like

We recently returned from a nine-day trip to England and Scotland, and while Baba G did really well with the six-hour time-zone difference while we were gone, he's been having a rougher time adjusting now that we're back.

Exhibit A:

He is the definition of inconsolable once he gets going.

We're hoping he'll finally get back to normal tonight or tomorrow night (we returned Saturday). For me, I always seem to take three or four days to sync up to my old schedule again, so maybe it will be the same for him.

For the past three nights he's slept from 7 p.m. to 3:30 a.m., but then wakes up every 30 to 40 minutes after that point. Normally he sleeps from 7 p.m. to 7 or 7:30 a.m. (I know, we're lucky).

The good news is that some tasty mac 'n cheese seemed to help get him out of his funk shortly after his freakout above.

We learned A TON about traveling with a toddler during this trip, so stay tuned for more on that front soon!

  1. Poor Des! But I have to admit I watched that part where he flips around like three times--it's just weirdly impressive. And speaking of impressive I can't believe what a big boy he is with the utensils!

  2. Not to worry...his daddy often acted that way and he never took an international flight at that age....but look how sweet he turned out ! Des is growing so fast and I am truly impressed with how he feeds himself. Auntie MA
