ok, basically you make sure he is in a safe comfortable place. do you have a play area, somewhere he is not going to move too far. how mobile is he? I used a playpen, or just the loungeroom. it didn't open to the rest of the house. I always fed (breastfeed) first then offered solids. made sure the nappy was changed, and let the little one play for a good while, watching, of course. sometimes there might be two sleeps a day , sometimes only one. if bub fell asleep somewhere I didn't want the child to be, it was not difficult to move without waking. if the child slept too long then dinner might be later, but I did always try to keep the night bed time around 7.30. I never put a lot of concern into any routine, I did like to have a set bedtime, but that was once the children were older. a routine as in a pattern, perhaps, but not a routine set by any clock. hugs, marie.
