OMG im sooooo jealous, here is my current routine

6.30-7.30 wake 7oz bottle bout 1/2 hr after wake up
breakfast 1/2 r after bottle
12ish lunch
1-2ish nap for 1hr tops  ::)
5/5.30 dinner
7-7.30 bed 7 if early nap or seems real tired


We still can have a lot of stirrings for his dummy  ::) but cant complain too much as he made the transition to bbb 3 months ago with NO probs at all  ;D

If he is ill he will sleep more and eat less but otherwise this is it, I would love him to have a lovely long nap but if he does he either wont sleep til V late or wakes super early in the morning sigh.......

well- sort of in flux here..
usually goes like this:
6AM wake up raring to go! potty time to try anyhow..
7AM breakfast
9:15 nap for 1 hour
11:30 Lunch
2:30 nap for 1 hour
6 PM supper
8 PM bedtime

Of course, that is an ideal day. Before the flu, we had some 1 nap days:
6:45 wake
12-2 nap
7:30 bedtime

My son just turned 3, so not sure we belong here anymore! But thought I'd post our routine, just in case....

8:30/9 am wake

9:30 breakfast

10-12 activities, classes, errand running

12:30 lunch

1:30/2 nap (depending on when woke in AM)

Sometime between 3-4:30 wake up (he does 1.5-2.5 hour naps; his naps are more variable now than they've ever been! But never shorter than 1.5 hours)

4:30-5:30 various types of play

5:30 make dinner with mom

6:00 dinner

6:30 play with daddy

7:00/7:30 upstairs to start bedtime routine

8-8:30 in crib for the night.  He's been falling asleep really fast, based on the silence after I leave the room!


This routine has been working really well with us.  We had a rough patch where he was so tired at nap time that he fell asleep during wind down! And then of course woke up while being transferred, resulting in 10 minute naps.  :P  I finally wised up and shortened his wind down and also do whatever I have to to keep him awake, including tickling! That has been working great and now he's back to having consistent long naps again!  Bedtime is typically 4 hours after he wakes up from nap, and I've found much longer than that and we enter OT territory.  He has less A time now than he did a year ago, so not sure why that is!  But I'm getting about 2 hours daytime and 11.5-12.5 hour nights, so I'm happy!

This is what we're doing now, although nursery days are a little different (she goes 3 days/week) She's 2yrs 5months next wk.

7/7:30 awake and drink of milk
8:30 breakfast
10ish snack
11:30 lunch
1:00 nap (at nursery this is earlier, more like 12, but works better to keep at 1pm at home, otherwise we start getting EWs)
             (typically sleeps 1.5-2hrs at home or 30mins-1hr at nursery)
3:30ish snack (then she has a few more little snacks before dinner ::)
6:00 dinner
7:30 bath (every 3 days as ecsema gets bad if more often)
8:00 milk, bedtime routine
8:30 in bed, lights out

She's always been a max 10.5 hrs nightslep girl, but we're now sometimes getting 11 or more hrs ;D Very pleased she's doing so well!

-Small lunch: 10:30
Nap 11:00-13:00
-Big snack: 13:30

Bedtime! 18:30

This has been our routine for the last week. Before that he was on 2 naps and EW since 11months.

Hopefully in a month or two we'll have a new one on here once we manage to shift his day later!! :)

Ella is 3 years 4 months. She has always needed more sleep than the average and still needs a long nap. Last year around this time she started EW and taking ages to fall asleep at night. I assumed she was on her way to dropping her nap and started shortening it. That totally backfired and she I realized that she was actually borderline OT and needed her nap extended. When we made the nap a little later and allowed her to sleep longer, she began having longer nights. I learned that the phrase "sleep begets sleep" is still so true as they get older. She still averages 12.5-13 hours of sleep a day.

7ish: awake
7:30: breakfast
8:00: Morning chores & get ready for the day, free time
8:45/9:00: MWF: leave for preschool, TTH we do some type of project or activity during the morning
11:30/12:00: Lunch
12:45: nap (sleeps 2-2.5 hours)
3/3:30: up from nap, time with Mom, independent playtime in bedroom
4:30/5:00: dinner
Playtime with sister
6:00ish: get ready for bed
6:30: stories and relax for bed
7:00: bedtime (asleep 8ish - needs downtime in bed before sleeping)
