  • if your baby's schedule is pretty consistant go with her flow and make that her schedule! If not a schedule, at least the same routine!

  • My son was never on a schedule as an infant. He would eat every 4 hours or so and just cat nap throughout the day. Once he was a toddler, be got on a schedule. Napping same time in the morning then in the afternoon. Bedtime was always 8 and he would wake up between 5 and 6. Schedules are nice for when you have nothing to leave and do outside of the house. But Its nice when there is no schedule and u can just go. You don't have to worry about naptime, and getting home in time for that. If any of that makes sense. My daughter is 6 months and she also has yet to get on a schedule. She will sleep when she is tired. This makes it easier for me as now my oldest is in kindergarten in the mornings. Hope this was somewhat helpful.
