  • I was chatting with Jess the other day and realized we still don't really have a routine all day.... I can't remember with the boys when they fell into a routine nap time? We still pretty much have an EASY routine- eat, activity, sleep.... but her naps are all over the place and we don't have a long one at all
     
    I'm not complaining too much bc her nights are fabulous- but i'm wonding if the other babies are having a routine nap time yet?

    L usually is up between 7-8am, eats, then usually has a nice nap in the morning until 9:30 or 10am.... then it's all over the place after that!

  • Noah is still doing the EASY too, but is slowly getting into a routine. He's up around 730-8am, morning nap from 9-11ish (sometimes he'll have a 3 hr nap here!)
    then afternoon nap around 1230-1pm (if it's a 1 1/2 hr nap he usually gets up for an hour and then back for a short nap before his next bottle (he still can't stay awake for much more than an hour at a time!)
    Then he has an evening nap from around 5-630, and still manages to sleep 12 hrs at night. I can't wait until he can stay up a bit longer so we can play!!

  • we are totally on a schedule here...i wont even say routine, because its not. the past week Lola has slept from 8 to 8. i found the secret for OUR success...when i get home from work, we take michael to school and then come home for breakfast (lolas) at 815am. Then at 955am she goes down for a nap (unswaddled and on her belly) until 1045am. then she is up and has lunch at noon. then, at 2pm she goes back down until 315pm (unswaddled and on her belly) after that, no more naps. I found that she sleeps much, much better overnight this way. sometimes she will sleep from 8pm until 945am! i know this sounds SO anal, but it works for us. i was much more comfortable with her napping schedule when i found that she is not the least bit fussy in the early evenings..i figured if she was sleepy, she would be irritable..but, she does take a little cap nap from 530pm until 550pm. I manage to sleep for about 3 hours during the day..when juan gets home, i am off to the gym, home, dinner and in bed by 7pm. then i am up at 930pm and get ready for work. God, im exhausted even typing this out.

  • No schedule here yet, and he's still getting up 1-2 times at night.

  • We really don't have a schedule here. Whether I'm home or Mike/Mom feeds her EBM bottle's, her last feeding is around 10:30pm and she is sleeping until around 8:00am and then will usually go back down for a couple hours. That's about the only "routine" things we do and even then it varies here and there. I don't think I'll try to get a schedule for awhile because our days are never the same here.
