My Kylie is finally starting to shift over to two naps during the day (morning and afternoon) but now I'm not so sure as to when to breastfeed her and give her food. It seems like she doesn't want to breast feed quite as often.



My 8 month old's schedule goes something like this (VERY approximate!):



7:30 Wake up breast feed

8:30 Breakfast of cereal

9:30 Nap

11:00 Wake up (sometimes breast feed)

12:00 Lunch of cereal, veggie and fruit

2:00 Nap

4:00 Wake up BF

6:00 Dinner of cereal, veggie and fruit

(Maybe short 30 min nap during evening sometime)

8:00 Bed time (She normally will not breast feed right before bedtime, whereas she used to)



What does a normal daytime schedule for your 8 month old look like ? When do they eat? When do they nap? When do they go down for the evening?

My daughter will be 8 months old on Friday! She is basically on the exact same schedule as your daughter. :) I think you and your daughter are right on track! :)

Find this so intersting to see other routines of babies same age as my daughter. We're slightly different to other posts in that we go straight to brekkie, no bottle first! My 8 month old's schedule looks like this -



8 am Wake up, cuddles and play time

830 am Breakfast, cereal

10am Bottle 6floz

11am Nap

12.15 Wake Up

1230 Lunch, Pureed Veggies, Fruit

1330 Bottle 6floz, prob only takes half though

1530 Bottle 6floz, Nap time

1630 Wake up

1715 Dinner, Pureed something or other with meat and veg

1900 Bottle 6floz

1930 Bed time!

I have a 8mth old girl I have tried to get her into a day routine but everyday is different depends on how much sleep she got during the night. She usually sleeps through but day naps have always been a struggle.does anyone think its too late to get her into a day routine now? I think though she may be transitioning into two sleeps a day from three but I would love to get her into a beta day routine if possible

Payton's schedule is similar to Kylie's



6:30-7:30 Wakes up - Bottle

8:30 Breakfast of Cereal and fruit

Nap will usually be 3 hours after she wakes up (Nap is anywhere from 1 hour - 2 hours)

11:00 Bottle

11:30 Lunch - Two types of Vegis

2:00 Nap...usually for 1-2 hours

4:00 Bottle

4:30 Cereal and Vegi

7:30 Bottle

8:00 Bedtime



My 8 month old's schedule changes depending on if she falls asleep earlier or later or if we have something going on i.e swimming, but for the most part that's what our day looks like for sleeping and food.

Hi
My little boy does as follows.....
7.30 am bottle 9oz
8.30 am cereal
9.30 am nap
10.30 am wake up (no bottle)
12.30 Lunch = fruit & yogurt
1.30 Nap
2.30 wake
4.30 dinner = veggie & yogurt
no other naps
6.00 pm bottle 9oz
7.pm bed
i noticed when he had a bottle during the day he would not take another b4 bed so i swapped the bottle for water or juice during day and added finger food to tied him over until his next feed xxx
