chronological EASY samples, 10-12 months

Sample EASY routines for 10 to 12 month olds

Please Note: These are merely sample routines that have worked for moms who followed EASY/BW principals and have decided to share them by posting online. If you still have questions about your individual LOs routine, feel free to post a question on the board.

Key Notes:

*Lots of LOs are beginning to have newfound mobility (or a lot MORE if they are already pretty mobile). If they havenít already been crawling, itís likely to start up. If they are already crawling, they may start standing and cruising. Often LOs try out their new skills, like pulling up, in their cribs! Generally speaking, these are phases and will pass. Sleep may be hindered by these acrobatics but should get back to normal once the novelty has worn off. Offer TONS of practice time during Awake periodsÖ.even practice IN THEIR CRIB. Hang out in their room and sort laundry or straighten up while they play peek-a-boo pulling up and sitting back down. OH and by all means--TEACH them how to bend their knees to get back down. You may find yourself coming to the rescue in the middle of the night when they pull up but canít get themselves back down.

*Nap refusals or EWs may begin to appear. This is an age of nap and routine tweaking. LOs are often crying out for increased A times and a bit less daytime sleep. It is sometimes tough to find what works best for each individual baby. Read the following links if you are struggling with sleep as they may help you figure out the best approach for this age range.

10/11 Month Old: Has sleep gone wonky?

*ALTHOUGH LOs head toward one nap, most are not ready until between 12 and 18 months to fully switch to just one nap each day on a regular basis. Be flexible and be prepared to have to continue working on naps to ensure your LO does not get OT which can lead to not only a cranky, exhausted baby, but a cranky, exhausted mommy, as well.

10 Month Sample Routines

3 hrs. A time
2 naps-one of 1 hr. and the other of 1 hr. 45 mins.
Total daytime sleep: 2 hrs. 45 mins.
