If so, when did you start this schedule? How did you develop it?
Is it constantly evolving, or has your child stayed pretty consistent with the schedule? (by evolving, I mean, number of naps, feedings, etc.)
I am a lover of a schedule and I believe that kids do well with them.
I mean I really have no evidence or knowledge to back that up. I guess it's just something I heard somewhere and it made sense to me.
Henry has fallen into a fairly predictable pattern, so I'm kind of just trying to solidify what he already does naturally, but here it is...
(I don't stand around with a stop watch and whistle, but we try to stick to it if we can.)
6:30 a.m.: Henry wakes up
7:00 – Henry has an 8 ounce bottle
7:00 – 7:30/8:00 – Playtime
7:30/8:00 – 9:30/10:00 – Nap time
9:30/10:00 – Henry has oatmeal cereal
10:00 – 12:00 – Playtime (tummy time, bath, errands, gym, etc.)
12:00 – 8 ounce bottle and baby food (If he can stay awake long enough. If he’s too tired move baby food to when he wakes up.)
12:15 – 3:00 – Nap time
3:00 – 4:00 – Playtime (baby food if he was too tired at noon)
4:00 – Henry has 8 ounce bottle
4:00 – 6:00 – playtime (May need a short cat nap or quiet time in swing about 5:15.)
6:00/6:30 – Henry has baby food
6:45/7:00 - Henry has 8 ounce bottle
7:00/7:15 p.m. - Bedtime
Moms out there. Does this sound about right?
Henry will be 6 months on Feb. 26th. Do you think he is eating enough or too much?
He is still waking up in the night about 2 or 3 a.m.
(Cut to me, banging my head against the wall.)
I think it is now a habit, and we are set to try and begin this sleep training biz on Tuesday night (I don't have to work the next day.) I am dreading/looking forward to this.
I feel like it is in his best interest. I just hope it doesn't make me jump out a window.
Or toss him out one.
Any advice is HIGHLY welcome!!!!
Thanks ladies and gents.
