    I have routines (not strict) for both my kids (11 months and 2 years) and I find things just work better for all of us especially them as they indicate to me now whats happening next. Thankfully neither of them fight sleep and happily go down for there day and night sleeps. Doing this, I can get things done or organise playdates / shopping around them and they're happy as they're not tired when they've eaten and slept when they're supposed to. This may not work for everyone but it does for us.

    Default Did you go have a set schedule for your baby?

    DD is 6 weeks, I follow her lead. We try to get up at the same time every weekday but weekends not so much. She feeds on demand which is usually every 3 hours at night, but often more during the day. I figure it will happen when she is ready - as long as she is clean, full and content and sleeping enough I am happy.

    Not until DD was 10 months old, I didn't think I'd ever be a schedule person but it just naturally happened around then. Before that we just had a night time schedule and fed approx 3-4 hours apart during the day (milk), she was still having 1-2 bottles overnight until recently too.

    Jasper found his own rhythm around 6-8 weeks he became predictable. Not a routine but a pattern of sleep feed play sleep feed play for reasonably consistent time periods.

    Katelyn I've had to nudge her to have two sleeps at 9ish and 3ish from 6 months. And still demand fed.

    No we tried with dd but it just made us all miserable, we just let her fall into her own natural routine which she did at about 2 mths old.
