NON schedule moms-i dont have a schedule for my 1 yr old
My son is 13 months and we've never really had a set nap schedule, eating schedule, etc. Our morning routine has always been the same but throughout the day I don't plan nap times or meal times. It works for us, mostly, but I'm just wondering how many of you do the same and if its had any negative outcomes so far in your toddlers moods, activities, etc. I've read tons and tons about schedules being important for little ones so theyll know what to expect, but my toddler doesn't seem to mind. the reason Its like this is because after he grew out of the infant stage (feed for 10 mins, sleep for three hours, so on ) , he never really stuck on certain nap times. Our family doesnt have a set meal time ever since my parents got divorced when I was 12. My ma and i eat when were hungry, but we still get in the three meals a day and still sit at the table as a family. He eats when we eat unless Of course he's hungry before. And his bedtime routine only consists Of reading Goodnight Moon then being swaddled and nursed to sleep. He loves this, it works. I'm just needing reassurance this won't impact him negatively because so far the families that do the same as us are just fine and their kids are a little older now and they go to bed the same time and take their one nap the same time.
Oh another thing, his bed time is Pretty consistent unless he refuses to sleep , which he's been doing a lot since he discovered walking and babbling.
