Adjusting E.A.S.Y for school run
« on: April 26, 2006, 09:33:43 am »
We were doing really well last week :D. But now my other son is back at school everything has changed. :-\ had to do PU/PD yesterday at 12.30, and again this morning after a 15 min nap in his pushchair. My baby is 6 months old and  enjoys 3 meals a day. The school run is 8.30-9.15 and 3.00-3.45 should I let him sleep in the pushchair? as we enjoy walking, or should I go in the car? Should he still have a nap in th afternoon? I hate doing PU/PD :'( I would be grateful for any suggestions.

My DD was having 2 good naps and a catnap (45 mins) at his age.

Your routine looks pretty good.  But I would put him down round about 4.30pm-4.45pm before his evening meal for 30 mins just to get him through to bedtime.

From 2.30pm till 7pm is too long a stretch for a baby at this age.
