  • I do my best to schedule all appointments AFTER school for my SKs. My DD is only 22 months, so I actually try to schedule hers during the day so that the appointments dont get in the way of extra curriculars, dinner, homework, or bedtimes. As for morning or afternoon for doesn't matter too much as long as I can be home before 4pm. Her naps are flexible.

  • I actually take them to the latest appointments possible, so usually after dinner.Transportation reasons.

  • Depending of the age of the child. If already in school we take the children to an afternoon app. For the babies the earliest the better.

  • When they were young and before school, I preferred the mornings.  Naptime was in the early afternoons.  When they became school age, I didnt have much choice...had to be afternoons

  • I usually try for late morning... enough to not feel rushed in the morning but not miss lunch or anything. So 9:30-10:00. Otherwise I try for sometime after nap... like around 3:00

  • I like to try and get one of the first appts. of the day because my Dr. is always running behind. I'd rather have to wake my DD a little early and be seen right away than have to sit in the office wondering how late she will be this time.
