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
