My toddler is quickly approaching preschooler!   Ahhhhh!  :)  He will be 32 months May 1st.  We are a whole lot more flexable now than a year and a half ago.  He also gets snacks if he asks and water or kefir if he is thirsty.

Wakes between 8 and 9 {vast improvement from 5 am!}
Breakfast after teeth brushing and face washing
Play, arts, get outside and water the garden
Between 12 and 1 is lunch
Rest/Nap time for about an hour if he doesn't sleep and until 3 if he does sleep
Get up and run a fast errand {go to post or grocery or sometimes the park or duck pond}
Home to help me prepare supper
DH arrives home and we sit down to eat no later than 6:30
After supper we go for a walk around the block and back home by 7 ish
DH takes over and does the bedtime game...bath, quiet game, book, cuddle, sleep usually by 8:30 sometimes as late as 10...really depends on if he slept in the afternoon.

He'll be college bond before I know it.

Oh this thread is helpful. This is DS's (12MO) routine this week on a good day but if I post next week it may well be different.

07.00    E BF
08.00    E Breakfast
10.00    S (1.5hrs)
11.30    E BF
12.30    E Lunch
15.00    S (1.5hrs)
16.30    E BF
17.30    E dinner
19.30    E BF
20.00    S and STTN 

Really need to start dropping those BF's.

Do you guys find the routines tends to be more stable now they are toddlers ot is it still ever-changing?

I found there was a lot of tweaking with the 2 to 1 nap transition. Once you hit that it's a bit more stable...just gradual increases of A time. My DD was able to tolerate OT a lot better so routine didn't have to be as strict, etc.


Here's a good day for us:

6:30-wake up (give or take 20 minutes)
7:30-Breakfast and milk
9:30-snack (around then...maybe later)
12-lunch
1-3-nap
3:30/4-sometimes a snack
6:00-dinner
8:00-bed (I sometimes can get her down earlier if she short naps)

Our day is slowly getting longer again and our night shorter. I either have to cut the nap soon or just live with it, I think. I'll hold out until 2 year molars perhaps???

8am wake and cup of milk (just got rid of morning bottle - yay!)
8.30am breakfast
9am washed dressed and play - round the house with mummy while she does her chores
10.30am - small snack and bit of TV
10.45am - play outside
11.45am - lunch
12.30pm nap
2.30/2.45pm - up, get ready and go out - shopping or playdate/park
snack on the go
4.30pm Tea then play
5.30pm bath then TV
6pm time with Daddy who just got in from work
6.30pm supper
7pm upstairs, bottle on Mummy and Daddy's bed with Daddy - bed

Sometimes we do the outing after breakfast so am and pm are swapped round

Tyler is 26months now. His routine as of fairly recently is...

Wakes between 6-7am.
Get dressed etc, breakfast about an hour after waking.
(Nursery on Mon/Wed 9am until 2pm).
Play at home or go to a group.
Lunch around 11:30
Nap 12-1/1:30
Snack sometime, maybe 3pm.
Afternoons we go out if Daddy is home, or just go for a little walk.
Dinner 5pm
Bath + wind down 6pm.
In bed by 7, asleep by 7-7:15pm

He's in a pretty good routine right now, once or twice a month we get a waking before 6am. Xx

Mya is 15.5 months old. We recently had to cut her am nap to 30 minutes sleep, so getting closer to 1 nap but not there yet. I also have to wake her at 7 am no matter what or the whole day is off.

7:00: wake-up
7:30: breakfast
9:30: milk
9:45: nap (sleep 10:00-10:30)
11:30/12: lunch
1:00: nap (wakes up between 3:00 and 4:00)
4:30/5: dinner
Bedtime is 3 hours after she wakes from pm nap so between 6:00 and 7:00 (usually 6/6:30), she gets milk before bed too

DD is 19 months and her day looks just like it did when we switched to 1 nap at 13 months.  May it last!

wake 7/7:30
breakfast 8/8:30
snack on occasion usually when we are out and about but not after 11am.
lunch 11:30/12
nap 12:30/1pm for 2 hours give or take 15 min but pretty consistent
snack around 4 or 5pm but if she's busy she'll go without it
Dinner 6:30/7pm
bath and bed by 7:30/8pm

all time depend on her wake up but she never sleeps past 7:30am on purpose and she never has a nap later than 1pm so preserve a bedtime of no later than 8pm except on occasion when we have plans that don't happen too often to preserve bedtime.  She deals much better with OT now but once she gets 30min past her bedtime we can expect a short night.

DD1 (1/09)
DD2 (10/11)
DD3 (3/15)
