  • My child isn't here yet, but i think i'd want to go with the flow for the most part, but have a schedule for other things, like dinner and bed time for kids.

  • We definitely have scheduled activities but for the most part we just go with the flow. We typically eat around the same time and nap around the same time but to be on a strict schedule everyday is just not my style.

  • We have an order of things, not a watch the clock kind of schedule so I would say that we are a combination. The kids wake up, eat breakfast, I nurse the baby. We run any errands we need too or play, do crafts. Then time to eat again. My older boys then nap or at least rest for an hour. Then we play some more. They usually have snack mid afternoon, while I feed the baby. We eat dinner between 5:50 and 7 depending when dh gets home. The evening is play time with daddy, baths, snack and bed between 8 and 9.

    My kids are 2, 3, and 8 months.

  • Its a little of both here...some things are scheduled, like all meals, bath time and bed time, but free time is kind of a toss up depending on how the day unfolds or if we have something planned.
