    Default 9 month old routine?

    Typical routine for a 9 month old? How many bottles and solid feeds? How much awake time between naps? And how many naps a day? I think my little girl is transitioning at the moment so just looking for a rough guideline of where we should be at, and a few examples of what has been working for you would really help!

    Thanks!!

    Our typical day looks like this:-

    6-7am wake/milk
    8.30am breakfast
    9.30-11am morning nap
    11am milk
    12.30 lunch
    2-3.30pm afternoon nap
    3.30pm milk
    5pm dinner
    5.30-6pm bath
    6.30pm milk
    7pm bed

    He's still having 4 milk feeds and doesn't look like dropping one quite yet. Some days he may sleep a bit longer, but it's usually right on 1.5hrs each time!

    DD (almost 10mo) doesn't really have a set routine and what semblance of a routine we had has completely gone out the window thanks to teething!! But typically on a non-daycare day it's something like:

    6-7am wake, breakfast (vita brits with puréed pear and formula)
    8am bottle
    8/9am morning nap, usually about 1-2 hours but on Saturday it was 4hrs!
    11:30 lunch (veggies or avo sandwich or fruit or whatever's on hand) and bottle
    12/1pm afternoon nap, usually 1-2 hours
    3pm possible snack and bottle
    5:30 dinner (whatever we're having or veggies with rice or pasta)
    6/6:30 bath
    6:30/7 bottle, story time and bed
    Midnight - 2am possession by the evil crying non-sleeping teething gremlins

    I'm hoping she'll defeat the gremlins soon but I'm not holding my breath...

    Our baby led routine for DD 8.5 months goes somewhat like this:

    7 am wake, Solid: porridge or homemade muesli, banana and yoghurt
    10-11am a 40 min nap
    12-1 lunch: generally fruit, grated carrot, cheese, a bit off whatever I'm having
    1 - 4 She will generally have one hour nap anywhere in the arvo.
    6 Dinner: whatever we are having.
    8ish Bed

    Yes, she doesn't sleep very much, and never has.

    Is still breastfed on demand, about 8 times a day and still feeds frequently, every 2 hours at night.

    Wow bugsy, I really feel for you! Minimal sleep during the day to catch up on rest from 2hr nightly feeds still?! Golly gosh!
