  • From day one. It just became more elaborate. Things like stories, brushing teeth and quiet time with the lights on were added while things like nursing and lotion were dropped as they got older

  • My first son I started a strict routine at 2 months. The same routine he still loves today at almost 3 yo.
    My second son had his own little biological clock from about a week old, so I integrated him into big bro's routine at about a month old.
