    Hi, I just replied in your other thread.....is she 2 or 1? In your other thread you say she is 2, so I gave an answer based on that.

    My 13 month olds routine goes something like this:

    4:30am - wake and feed, then back to sleep for another hour (either in bed with me or go for a walk and sleeps in the pram)
    5:30/ 6am - wake for the day
    6:30 - breaky
    9 - snack
    11 - boobie & nap (usually about 1.25hrs)
    12:30 - lunch
    2 - snack
    5 - dinner
    5:30 - bath and book
    6 - boobie and bed.

    He's only on 1 day sleep - I know alot of 12 month olds are still usually on 2. When DS was on 2 he'd have a short nap around 8:30 and another slightly longer one around 12:30 (after lunch).

    DD is 13 months old

    5:30-6:00 - Wakes
    6:00am - 8:00pm - utter chaos with a nap anywhere from 20 mins to 90 mins
    8:00pm - asleep
    9:00pm - awake and furious that she's been put to bed and wants cuddles and don't even think about putting her back in her cot because she will wake up and cry so either DF or I are then on cuddle duty for the rest of the night until she wakes for her first nightly feed...

    What was I thinking when I said I wanted a second child?

    With my 11 month old we do:
    6am - wake up
    Breakfast and bottle
    9-11 sleep
    Lunch and bottle
    1-3 sleep
    Snack
    5- dinner
    Bath
    6 - bottle
    6.30 - into bedroom for reading
    6.45 bed

    We had some difficulties recently and she was waking up nutso early - turned out she was cold with the aircon on! turned it off in the evening and just had a fan for air movement which has worked wonders!
    We also got a sleep specialist when she was 7 months! Who recommended putting her down standing up sitting down upside down inside out as they wake up like this and don't know what to do to get back to sleep unless they have done it before!

    I also wanna add I'm really strict with her sleeps coz life was very difficult pre sleep specialist where she would only sleep in my arms and even then fight it! I would then try put her down and 10 mins later she would wake and I'd have a mini tantrum outside her room coz I so badly needed time out!
    So... That's why the routine looks clinical coz I'm much too scared to go back there!!
    (I will admit sometimes at night I still lay in bed missing her cuddles!!)

    My dd is 15 months- her routine is roughly this...
    Wake 6/ 6:30
    Breakfast 7am
    Morning tea 9am
    Lunch 11am
    Sleep11:30/12-2pm
    Afternoon tea (snack) 3pm
    Dinner:5:30/6
    Shower with dh: 6/6:30
    Bed: 6:30-7:30
    I breastfeed on demand so she is usually drinking all through the day aswell! and she has recently been sick so the routine has flown out the window!
