  • breakfast, lunch, nap, dinner. Let the times fall where they fall. My LO lies down for a nap between 1 and 2 and gets up between 4 and 5 and she is 2 1/2.

  • well with my 20 month old we do this
    he gets up at 7:30am has breaktfast at 8am
    plays with toys from 8am till 11:30am sometimes we run arrands instead durring that time or we go to play group on thursdays.
    at 12 he has lunch
    then its nap time from 12:30 to 2 sometimes 2:30 depends.
    then its outside play unless its to cold and then we play inside with books or blocks
    he usually has a snack after nap. Then we make Dinner at 5:30 and eat by 6pm
    at 7pm he takes a bath and gets ready for bed. we have quit time from 7 to 8 by reading books or playing quitly in his room. at 8pm its bedtime.

  • I have twins. Twin boys. When they were little, they are 11 now. I kept them on the same schedule. They ate at the same time, went to sleep at the same time and I even woke them up at the same time. You set the schedule , not them. You get the picture. Hope this helps.

  • Get up in the morning, breakfast, play time, 10 - snack, 11.30 lunch, 12.00 beddy time, 2 - 2.30 waking up, singing, talking, reading, after snack, 4 - 4.30 tea, more playing, 5.30 - 6 dinner, 6.30 - bath, story time, 7 - bed.

    In play times I take them to the park, baby groups, etc. But I usually take them home at sleeping time. So they can have a proper rest. It works quite frankly. Except when one of them is ill.

    You can do the same routine from 6-month-old with an additional nap from 9 to 10.

  • Morning: breakfast, get dressed, story time, play time, arts & crafts or learning activity, singing/dancing, play time
    Midday: lunch, nap/resting
    Afternoon: snack, learning activity, play time
    Evening: dinner, play time, baths, stories, bed

    I try to give mine at least two outdoor play times each day, even if it's only for a few minutes. I usually don't expect them to spend more than about 20 or 30 minutes on any one activity, so there could be even more play times or learning activities added in to fill the voids.
