Daily baby routine

Hi! I'm trying to get my 3 month old baby on a schedule to be up by 6am and asleep around 8 pm.. Seem kinda like a silly question but how do I incorporate for her bedtime bath routine (bathe, massage, bottle) if her previous feeding sometimes falls at 6-6:30? Just a little confused and need advice how to make a baby fall into a routine.. She usually gets fussy at 8 then I bathe her and feed her and she'll be asleep by 9 sometimes 9:30 and won't wake up until 6 am. However I feel that this is too late for her.

She is 3 months old. It isn't NORMAL for her to sleep for 10 hours without a feed. She has a tiny little belly. She can only eat so much at a time. For a growing baby, the fact that you are getting her to sleep for the night is good - I'm not sure why you think this is a problem. When a child is this age, bedtimes are not like when they are no longer daytime napping and need to get all their sleep in one hit. Your baby would still be napping through the day. All up, a 3 month old baby should be getting about 15 hours a day of sleep. As long as she is getting that, then I'm not seeing a problem with this bedtime.
