What age can you start putting your baby in a routine? My little girl is 9 weeks old is it to early to start getting her in to one.

I think kids pretty much make their own routines. They are all different and if you try to put them down at the same nap times and bed time every day the rest seems to fall into place.

i agree with Terri Prime..
it is good to get babbies into routines because when they grow up they also learn how to put them self into routines..
my son came from hospital and he allreaddy set up his sleeping and feeding pattern

e.g; 12.00 change nappy feed and sleep wakes up 5-6 hours later change nappy feed sleep and anouther 5-6 hours wakes up massage, bath, feed and sleeps for a lil longer about 7 hours and than wakes up and plays for a lil while and a night around 5-7 massage, bath and feed and he falls sright to sleep and wakes up at 12..

he is 3 months and he still does the same routines at night and massage, bath him at the same time but at day time he wakes up for a lil longer at day time.. so yes routines are good and helps you out as a mother..

i think its always good to have routines and i think it helps the child to,i think its always important to start as early as possible to get them settled ,i know its harder to do this with young babies as things dont always go to plan ,i couldnt do this as well with my last little girl as she had very bad colic and was very upset most of the time ,but i would especially try getting your baby in a routine with sleep and feeding pattern as soon as possible hope this helps
