    Dansci0, in regards to sleep, are you worried? I have returned to part time work and my DH and mum share care and struggle to get her to sleep, mum is really worried, saying lack of sleep will affect her development. I'm not worried at this stage as 90% of the time she sleeps through the nite, not sure at what stage I should be worrying.

    Not worried at all, my dd doesn't struggle to fall asleep she's very quick to do that she just doesn't sleep for long periods during the day although will sleep straight through the night. As for development don't be worried unless you as a mother feel she isn't developing as you feel she should. If anything my dd is ahead not to big head myself but she talks/ says her name dada papa hello yes etc (not mummy yet 😱) shakes her head and does no no with her index finger , crawls , and when held up very very eager to walk! So I doubt the small sleeps during the day are affecting her development. I actually read somewhere that children this age sometimes struggle to sleep because they have learnt something new and are too eager to keep doing it. Has ur dd learnt something new recently?

    My DS is almost 10 months old. His routine is:
    630: bottle & breakfast. I find this the hardest meal, he's not keen on cereal. I find the jar of muesli his favourite but I hate giving him jars all the time.
    700: play
    8/830 nap
    10/1030 wake & bottle.
    1115: arrive at daycare and they give him lunch. He'll eat a bowl of whatever is on the menu or veggies.
    1230: nap. He'll only sleep an hour or so for this nap.
    230 bottle
    330 snack, often yoghurt
    I pick him up at 4, often we will go on a coffee date!
    5/530/6 dinner. He has a bowl of whatever we are eating, plus fruit plus custard or yoghurt
    630 bath then a play or cuddles or a story
    8pm bottle then bed!

    I love reading all these routines, gives me ideas!

    DS2 is 9.5 months. He has a mix of finger foods and very chunky spoon fed meals.

    5.30-6: wake up & bf
    7.30: porridge with chopped dried apricots, sultanas & grated apple/pear
    8:45-9: nap (1-1.5 hrs)
    10.30: bf
    12: lunch, lentils with sweet potato & carrot or steak with mashed veggies or mini quiches made with grated veg - I always give protein at lunchtime
    1-1.30: nap (40 mins to 1.5 hrs)
    2.30: bf
    5: dinner, just started giving him whatever we are eating but before this it was always mashed veggies.
    6: bf
    6.30: bed

    God just in regards to these routines how the hell do your babies go without a catnap in mid/Late arvo? Means they are up for around 4-5 hours before bed.... Mine I'm sure would lose it completely by 5!! And I'm not willing to put her to bed really early other DH would never see her during the week
    Edit: mind you I'm not complaining about mine still napping 3 times a day lol! She sleeps 11 hours at night (maybe 1 wake up around 4-5) so I know she's not sleeping too much during the day for her!

    This has been really reassuring for me to see others routines and mine is not that much different, especially struggling with breakfast and basically no meat yet (until recently my dd was breast feeding minimum 6 times a day )

    Every day varies, depending on what's on.

    Will write more later.
