What's your 15-24mos old toddler's schedule like?

Here's my son's schedule who will be 15mos on the 12th (I'm definitely ALL about schedules haha):

9:30-10AM: Wake up!
10AM: Have 6oz of whole milk then some sort of breakfast food (waffles, eggs, yogurt, oatmeal).
11AM: Snack (a couple whole wheat crackers, or some cheerios) with a couple ounces of water.
12-12:30PM: Nap time
2-2:30PM: 6oz cup again with some sort of fruit or grilled cheese.
3-3:30PM: Snack (half piece of whole wheat bread or piece of cheese) & a couple ounces of water.
4-4:30PM: Nap time
6-6:30PM: 6oz cup again with whatever veggies I can get him to eat haha
7-7:30PM: Snack (a few pieces of fruit or some of whatever I'm having) & a couple ounces of water.
9PM: Bedtime! :]

I try to give him a bath every day but a lot of the time it ends up every other day. He's so cute as far as reading though, he's gotten to the point where he brings me his favorite books for me to read. :]

  • OP: Oh & where is your toddler at for height/weight/etc?

    My son's been pretty much in the middle since birth. He's pretty good at stopping when he's full & we try to keep the majority of what he eats healthy.

  • 18 months tomorrow:
    7am -- wake up
    7:05 am -- eats a yogurt (she won't drink milk)
    7:30 -- eats breakfast
    9:30 or 10 -- snack
    11:30 or 12 -- lunch
    12:30 -- nap -- usually until 3 or 3:30
    4:00 -- snack
    5:30 -- dinner
    6:30 -- clean-up, bath, books, tooth brushing, potty, songs
    7:30 or 7:45 -- lights out
    I have another daughter, almost 3, who shares a room and shares this schedule (except she drinks milk upon waking in the morning and after nap, and usually naps for 1.5-2 hours).

  • we dont really have a "schedule" but a routine. my sn is 22 months old. he isnt always up the same time, but it's usually around 830 lately. he likes to watch cartoons while I make breakfast, and depending on any errands or playgroups during the morning, he usually gets lunch before his nap, which is normally around 2 or so hours long. when he's up he gets lunch (if he didnt make it to lunchtime) or a snack. we play the remainder of the day and I do some house upkeep, SO arrives home anytime between 430-6, one of us makes dinner, DS gets a bath and story/lulluby around 8 and he's in bed by 8:30'ish

  • 21 mos TODAY! Before this schedule he would knock out at 10am but I slowly moved his nap with parent ed and storytime at the library.
    Mon- wakes up, nurses a bit, breakfast, snacks, naps (nurses) right after, nurses a bit when he wakes up, lunch, early dinner, bath (not everyday :P), read a book, then sleeps (nurses).
    Tues-Thurs - wakes up, nurses a bit, breakfast, parent ed/storytime at the library, park, snacks, naps later (nurses), nurses a bit when he wakes up, lunch, early dinner, maybe bath, sleep (nurses) He's beat these days.
    Fri - wakes up, nurses a bit, breakfast, therapy, plays independently, snacks, naps and so on...

  • The condensed version of our schedule: wake up, eat, run until it's time to eat again, eat, run until we fall down for nap time, nap, eat, run until it's time to eat again, eat, run until we fall down for bedtime.
    The other version:
    7am:wake up, eat breakfast
    10am: cup of juice and some yogurt
    noon: lunch
    1pm-2pm: nap and another snack when he gets up
    4pm: couple pieces of cheese or fruit or something
    6pm: dinner
    8:30: bed time.

    He's a really good eater so getting in all the veggies is never an issue. there's no real schedule but those are the times things usually happen and then it's pretty much free play during the day as we just go from thing to thing as he feels like it. Reading is a major high point in his day right now. This week there are about three books he has to read repeatedly for about an hour or so. He's 95th percentile in height and about 50th in weight. Always has been since day one. :)

  • My son is 29 months now, but when he turned 2 his schedule went like this:

    8am: wake up, eat breakfast, usually a fruit and a grain (a banana and cereal is what he wanted 9 times out of 10!) plus water
    11am: lunch, usually a protein, a veggie, and a fruit plus milk
    12pm: nap
    2pm: up
    3pm: snack something light, changed it up, maybe fruit, maybe crackers, maybe yogurt
    6pm: supper...I try to have a meat, a starch, and a veggie, plus water
    7pm: bed

    He drank water all day long as he pleased, too. He seems to have become more of a juice fan since turning 2 for some reason, but we still water it down with half water. :)

  • Oh, and he was always around 50% for weight and 95% for height. We try to feed him relatively healthily, though we certainly aren't above feeding him pizza or hot dogs sometimes, and we are a little funny about him drinking anything besides water, watered-down juice, and milk, but he goes to his bio-dad's one night a week to live on Mt. Dew, Pop Tarts, and Happy Meals.
