What is your everyday schedule with your baby?

Mine is almost 5 months old, and I was wondering what your schedule for your 4-5 month old was. If you don't have one, and you remember what you did around that age, I'd like to hear about that, too.

    he still isnt sleepin threw the night, so i am going to try a cereal bowl with a bottle before he goes to bed, see if that helps...its what our ped suggested.....

  • I've never used a schedule with a baby, AT 5 months he just napped when he wanted, nursed when he wanted and played with me. That kept him busy enough.

  • I believe in schedule, that's the ONLY thing that has kept me sain throughout the whole process of being a new mom.
    My son is 5 1/2 months and this is his schedule.
    7am waketime [he wakes himself & plays in his crib until 8]
    8am 7 oz bottle, 930am nap [2 hr nap]
    12pm 7oz bottle + solids
    130 nap [1-2 hr nap]
    4pm 7oz bottle
    530 nap [45 min to 1 hr]
    7pm bedtime routine starts [solids, then bath, then bottle, then in bed by 8] [sleeps all night]
    Hope this helps.
