I have been learning the same progression for Time in a Bottle, and I have small hands/ short fingers. Positioning my thumb further down the neck helps with the reach for the c#. When you move down to c you can switch your pinky to 3rd fret/ 2nd string and grab the c with you ring finger. I have spent a lot of time going back and forth from the D to D/c#: Nothing like practice!
