I think it's time to implement a better routine, now that my little man is nearly 6 months old. Currently he has a bed time routine starting around 6 pm, of breastfeed/bottle, three teaspoons of cereal mixed with three teaspoons of a veggie, bath, lotion, bed around 7pm. Recently I added another solid meal at 10 am after a feeding/bottle, two teaspoons of cereal and two teaspoons of a fruit, then a nap. He seems to be adjusting to it well.

Now for me, I find I'm getting lazy. So I'm thinking of adding walk time around 1pm, and giving myself two hours for it. The gym is a 15 minute walk away, and the grocery store is 20 minutes away. I figure this way I can get a walk in, going to the gym or shopping for an hour before heading back. Also I think this time works for me since doctors appointments and such are typically between 1 and 3 pm. Possibly less disruptive this way? Thoughts?

I applaud you for wanting to start a routine! Keep in mind though, as soon as you get your routine up and running, your little one will change his and you will be up the creek. Just be flexible and go out for walks, etc, when he is up and ready for action. They change so fast at that age! And the fun is just beginning!

The walking sounds like a great way to spend some time with your little one and getting some exercise in as well. Great idea!
My only advice would be for the more solid foods your are introducing. Be sure that you aren't giving him to many new things at once. That way if he has any type reaction to any of the foods you will know what he is reacting to.
