My daughter goes to bed at about 6:00pm and wakes up between 7-8am has a 8 ounce bottle, a bum change and some solid food (usually baby cereal mixed with pureed fruits or something) and plays, crawls and practises standing until she goes back down for a nap from about 11:30am- 1:00pm after getting another clean diaper. when she wakes up shes always full of smiles and giggles and then we eat some lunch (perhaps pureed rice and chicken) and a 6 ounce bottle. she seems to like going in her excersaucer at this time to watch her us bustling around doing our daily things while being able to stand and play with toys. she goes back down for a short nap around 4:00pm again after having a bum change. When she wakes up sometime close to 5:00pm she usually has some bland unseasoned version of what we`re eating all mashed up then after having a bath she has an 8 ounce bottle usually cuddles for a while before going to sleep for the night again at 6:00pm

I must have the early bird baby! Easton wakes up between 6 and 6:30 and nurses then eats breakfast around seven. He goes down for a nap around 9 and sleeps for about 1 1/2 hours thne nurses and eats lunch around 11. He'll take another nap around 2 and sleep for another 1 1/2 hours. He'll nurse again around 3:30 then we'll have dinner at 5:30 or 6. Bath is a little before seven. He'll nurse for the last time around 7:30 then off to bed by 8. He unfortunately hates to sleep. Takes after me, unfortunately.
Camryn wakes up between 7-7:30, has an 8 0z bottle at 8, then plays around for awhile...she then gets a jar of fruit around 11:-11:30, 6 oz bottle at 12, then she takes a nap anywhere from 1-2.5 hours. She then has a 6 oz bottle around 3-330...then a jar of veggies/meat at 5:45....watches her Baby Beethoven video at 6:20, has a bath, the 6 oz bottle before bed at 7:30. In the middle sometimes she will have a piece of fruit in the net contraption you can get a babies r us...also she is in her jumperoo and rolling around the floor playing all day long. She sleeps 10-12 hours a night

My eight month old son Ford wakes up between 8am and 10am. If its closer to 8 he nurses then goes back to sleep for another hour and a half. If closer to 10, he nurses then plays for two hours then eats cereal and goes down for an hour nap. He wakes up and nurses( he is scheduled feeding) then we play a couple of hours and depending on his mood he may take another shorter nap. He sleeps around twelve or thirteen hours through the night so usually does ok with one nap. We eat veggies and cereal for dinner around 5:30 and then nurse at seven for bedtime.

3 kids, they all are different. Here is what my 8month old little girl does:
Wakes up by 7am, nursing on demand, plays, eats brkfst, and goes back down by10 or 10:30 ( I watch for rubbing of her eyes) Sometimes she cries for 2 min, then falls asleep. Sleeps for 2 hours, up and plays, eats lunch, back down for a nap around 3pm, she doesn't sleep as long for this nap. she goes to bed by 9pm

It took forever to get my daughter on a routine because I've been a stay at home mom up until now and haven't really needed a routine. It's still pretty laid back. She wakes up usually between 7:30-8:30, She has a bottle and cereal and sometimes fruit, then plays for a little bit and goes back down around 10:30. She sleeps usually for two hours (give or take) then plays in her crib for a little bit while she's waking up. She has veggies and a bottle and then goes back down for a nap around three or four and sleeps usually not more than an hour. She has dinner around five or six and snacks though out the day and usually a bath in the afternoon ( I don't know why I do it in the afternoon.) Then she usually goes to bed at ten.
