View Full Version : What is your baby's schedule
04-20-2009, 04:42 PM
I am looking for moms w/ a baby about the same age as mine to let me know what his/her napping/sleeping schedule is like. This is my 4 1/2 mth old daughters schedule:
10am: get up for the day
11am-12pm: Nap w/ 4 oz bottle
2pm-5pm or 3pm-6pm: Nap w/ 6 oz bottle
7pm-8pm: Nap w/ 4 oz bottle
845pm-930pm: Nap w/ 4 oz bottle
1015pm: I starting putting her to sleep
1030pm-1045pm: Lay her in the crib
2am: Wakes for comforting (sometimes i let her CIO)
5am: Wakes for 6 oz bottle
10am: Gets up
She puts herself to sleep at nap times but I do put her to sleep before I lay her in the crib at night. Sometimes she might wake and I let her CIO.
Any advise/"sample schedules" would be appreciated.

My daughter is 5 months, and has the following schedule:
6:30 am:get up/nurse
10 am: nurse
12-2 pm: nap
2 pm: nurse
5 pm: nurse/veggies
6:30 pm bath time
6:45-7:00 pm: book time with big brother
7:15 pm: nurse
7:30 pm: bedtime
She sleeps through the night and rarely wakes up (wish I could say the same of her older brother!)
We have earlier mornings because my husband and I both work, and she goes to bed a little later than she'd prefer because she shares a room with her big brother, so we have to compromise a little there. She always gets laid down in her crib when she's awake (she has never cared for falling asleep in people's arms).
I do know that things like sleeping through without needing a bottle can vary a lot between babies.

Well, I adjusted her naps yesterday and her last nap was at 630-7. Gave her a bath at 9 and she was in bed by 930 and slept until 430 this am. It is now 1030am and she is still asleep. I think every week I will make bedtime 30 mins earlier. I would love to fo to be at 730 or 8 ( but I have a 2 1/2 yr old that doesnt go to sleep before 11pm) Thanks ladies- I am going to steal your schedules some. Except for the earlier mornings- I dont know how you do it. LOL. Thanks again.

My DD is 5 mos. The start of her schedule varies, but after she wakes up this is the norm:
Morning: wake up, eat a fruit and a bottle (6oz)
3 hrs after wake up time is nap time for 45mins to 1 1/2 hr.
(sometimes a little before/after 3hrs)
Afternoon: wake up, eat fruit or veggie and a bottle
same nap time
Evening: wake up, eat a veggie and a bottle
7:45 pm bath time, story time and then bed time by 9:30pm.
she will usually wake up once throughout the night for a bottle and then back to sleep.
