    Smile Routines help

    Looking for mums to talk about their routines if they work or what everyone had to do to get settled in to one with a toddler and a new born baby

    How old are your bubs?

    My DD1 was 2.5 when DD2 came along. It took about 4 months to start to get some kind of routine going.

    I agree it takes a bit of time. It was about 2-3 months before my bub started to get settled into one more naturally on her own. I did encourage her to have her longest nap when my toddler did though. Which has worked. If you can do this you'll get to nap too. Its my life saver!

    I always tried to get out if the house early for a play at the park and newborn would sleep in the pram or carrier while DS played and got some energy out early.

    Then we would go home and hopefully the next sleep would be both of them at Same time!

    Bedtime I always organised newborn bath first and sat to feed her while DS watched abc2. Once she was down I did his bath and bed.

    The perfect day never happened but we just kept trying and a routine formed. It changes as they grow and everyone's is different so just keep trying till you find what works for you.
