I love reading other people’s blogs and looking at schedule posts–it’s always so helpful to see what other people do, and I find that I get a lot of ideas or tips from seeing them. So far, I haven’t been too good about writing these, but I figured I would share a current schedule for those that are in the same stage to reference. Hopefully I can remember to do more schedule posts next time around, ha!
7:30 Awake for the day
8:00-10:00 Play Time/Errands/Baby Classes & Snacks
12:30-2:30 Nap Time
2:30-5:30 Up from nap, afternoon play & snacks
5:30 Dinner Time
7:00 Books and Bedtime
7:30 Lights Out
A couple things I wanted to mention in regards to our schedule:
· Wakeup time, nap time and bed time always vary. For example, he woke up early today (very rare for him!) at 6:30, so nap time was earlier and so was bedtime. If he sleeps in and wakes up later–everything is usually pushed an hour later. We are very flexible with the times normally, it’s just the schedule/order that really stays the same!
· Obviously, everyday looks really different. Some mornings we go to mommy & me classes and run errands, others we go out and about meeting friends for play dates, and some days we are just home. Our “play time” activities always vary on what’s going on.
· Lorenzo has been a wonderful nighttime sleeper basically from the start, and he has been sleeping through the night since he was around 9 months old. However, naps have been a struggle ever since he was little. We worked with Sleep Yay Consulting to get those down, so I highly recommend contacting her if you need sleep help!
If you have a little one close in age to ours, is your schedule similar or quite different? I’d love to hear!
