Routine for a 6+m baby Lock Rss

Everybodys is different and would love to hear how your day is!

My little man wakes me up laughing at around 5:30am, he then comes into bed with me and falls asleep until about 7am. We then get up he plays for about 15 minutes, he then has a bottle. Plays for another 1/2 hour to an hour and has a sleep for about 1 hour. He has a cereal bottle (formula with banana custard shaken-in powdered type ofcourse). Then around an hour later he has a big jar of strawberry and rice yoghurt and a bottle. Then another sleep for around another hour or two. He wakes and plays for an hour or so, then has a bath followed by dinner which is generally around 5:30-6pm. and finally his last bottle for the night at around 7pm.
Then it starts all over again the next day. People say that my day to too hectic and i should try and vary it but we are happy with it so i'm sticking to it.

Hello. I try to keep to a routine as I have 6 month old twin boys and our life is pretty hectic. So, our routine at the moment is:
7am - wake, breastfeed followed by weetbix and fruit, play
8:30am - sleep for 1 - 2 hours
10:00am - wake, play, breastfeed at about 10:30
11:00am - sleep
12:30pm - Lunch, Hopefully vegetables then fruit or yoghurt
2:30pm - Sleep
4:00pm - Breastfeed, play
5:00pm - Dinner, vegetables and fruit, play.
6:00pm - bath, followed by a breastfeed.
7:00pm - bed
10:00pm - rollover feed
around 4:30am they are still waking for a feed, unfortunately.

Hope this helps you. Mind you, our routine can change everyday, but we try to stick to it as much as possible.

Not sure if I would call it a routine because some days I just go with the flow! But generally:

7am - Wake up, cuddles bottle, sleep
8am - Wake up, bath, breakfast (weetbix and banana), play, watch mummy dance silly like the Wiggles!
10am -sleep for about 1 hour hopefully
11am - Lunch, fruit and yoghurt
11:30am - bottle, sleep for about 2-3 hours.
2pm or so - Wake up, play have some juice or water and a fruit gel if hungry.
5:30pm - Dinner, Vegies, fruit. Spend some time with Dad.
6ish - bath, bottle and bedtime (kisses cuddles and story)
I am so lucky, Brooke sleeps right through...

Hi,

Just another routine to add to your list already. I use this for my 5 month old.

7.00 am: Wake your baby, change nappy and feed even if the last feed was at 5.30am. This way your baby is starting his day on a full tummy.
8.00am: Feed your baby solids.
9.00 am: Put baby down on his back in his cot while still awake.
12.00pm: Feed your baby solids
11.00 am: If not already awake and up, wake baby, check nappy and feed.
1.00pm: Put baby down on his back in his cot while still awake.
3.00 pm: If not already awake and up, wake baby, check nappy and feed.
4.30 pm: Go for a walk or out in the car to encourage your baby to sleep in other places other than his bed.
5.15pm: Do not let your baby sleep past 5.15pm.
5.20pm: Feed your baby solids.
6.00 pm: Bath baby, or give top to toe wash.
6.20 pm: Feed baby.
7.00 pm: Put baby down on his back in his cot while still awake.
10.30 pm: Dream feed
