I let my babies set their own schedules. I do have a bedtime routine but no actual bedtime until they are older. We have a basic daily routine that we do as a family (get up, eat, get dressed, chores, etc.) but nothing specific for baby.

I started a bedtime routine from the beginning, bath, bottle bed .. then did a daytime routine around 4 mths old or so
How old is your baby? I would just start putting him down for naps around the same time every day ans go from there.. as he gets older, you can tweek it as you go along, do what works best for both of you

We let baby determine schedule. He nurses on demand, sleeps when he wants, etc.

 I had a bedtime routine from about the 2nd month; warm bath at 7pm, rock and bottle. I don't really have a set schedule. DS wakes, eats and naps when he wants. However, I don't let him nap after 4pm or he will never sleep at night. If it's getting late in the afternoon and he still hasn't napped, I would rock him a while. Normally he'd go right to sleep.

As DS got older, he got use to my husband and I schedule, so now he does eat breakfast, lunch and dinner when we do. He still naps when he is ready though.

We don't have a strict schedule but my son naps around the same time and goes to bed around the same time every day.

dd doesn't really have a schedule (she's 16 months). i let her sleep whenever, though she usually eats when i do. she actually probably sleeps later than most kids her age, otherwise she wouldn't see her dad most weeknights. but i also stay home with her, i wouldn't keep her up if we had somewhere (like daycare) to go early in the morning,

We do bedtime routines and started around 6 weeks. We never did "set times" for snack/meals but we would do them in the same order everyday, for instance after morning nap we'd have snack, etc. but if the baby slept longer in his nap we didn't wake him up to snack. kwim?
