First off let me say I am sorry I was MIA this past Friday and Monday. My family and I left for the beach on Thursday evening and we came home on Monday. We were wore out and I like to unpack immediately so I didn’t get to posting. Sorry!(Pic from google images, not my own (: ) So who doesn’t want a baby who sleeps all night?
As the title suggests I have created the perfect schedule for MY family. And this baby schedule may work well for yours as well. If I haven’t said it before then I will say it now.. we live by a schedule in my house. Blame it on the military or just liking to know a routine but a schedule or routine can make a big difference. Being a health professional who specialized in children and pregnancy I wanted to analyze everything, especially with my first baby! Let’s admit it, babies make us crazy.
So on to my routine. Every morning baby K wakes up somewhere between 6:30am-8am. We take our bottle when we wake up even when it is early which it has been lately.
At 8am I make some baby cereal either rice or oatmeal and I mix in a little fruit. I usually try to get baby K to take a little snooze around 10am.
At 11am I give a partial bottle and 2oz of fruit. Back to play time!
At 2pm I give another full bottle and then it is nap time. Baby K usually takes about a 2 hour nap between now and his next meal.
5pm we get another partial bottle and 2oz of veggies. Play time is full swing.
By 7:30pm we are taking our bath and getting ready for bath time. (Of course I have a bath time routine!) Then a full bottle and off to bed to get a full nights sleep and start it all over again the next day!
I don’t use many measurements because your baby may be younger or older. Every baby is different so please use your own reason when it comes to your babies found amounts. Of course follow your pediatrician orders.
This schedule has been implemented even since I was breastfeeding. It has allowed us to get baby K to sleep all night and knows when it is time to eat. I know he is getting full and all the nutrients needed to grow.
Hope y’all are having a great week! Talk to you soon!!
