Thanks ladies! I was just wondering as I bumped into one of my mothers group mums and she mentioned that she had her baby into a routine and seemed surprised when I said that we don't have one, just work the day from when whenever DS wakes.
Definitely don't want any stress around here and he is a fairly good sleeper. He use to have to be fed to sleep but now will fall asleep by himself.
Thanks for all the advice and will just go on the way we are.
Btw... The area health clinic I went to said that the save our sleep book was no good and only certain babies would work to the schedules.

DS is in bed by 7pm every night and up at 7-8am. He takes a nap every 2 hours as well. I pop him down for a nap when I see his tired signs which is every two hours.

In the begining we never had a routine for the day, that didnt work for us, so I implimented a flexible day routine, but i was always strict with the evening routine from day dot. This worked for us, and even now at 19 months we still follow the evening routine. But do what works for you

With DS I was beside myself for the first 6 months because we had no routine and it drove me nuts! Eventually once he started solids he some how put himself into a routine just after 6 months. I think he napped approx 9am-10.30/11am, another nap around 1-2.30/3pm and then a final shorter nap around 5-6pm and then bed at 7.30/8pm. Something like that, it was 2 yrs ago now!!
