If my son wakes up around 5:30-6:30, I bring him into our bed and feed him and he will sleep until 7:30 or 8:00. Sometimes he will wake up around 7:00-7:30, and so I will get up and feed him and start our day. He is b___stfed. Then we usually go for a half hour walk and then he eats cereal and fruit (around 8:00-8:30). He will go down for a nap around 9:00 and sleep for 40 minutes to 1.5 hours (usually 40 minutes). Wakes up and nurses. Then we play: jumperoo, playmat, practice sitting and rolling, etc. Another nap around 12:30 (again 40 minutes to 1.5 hours...usually 40 minutes). Nurses around 1:30, and then playtime again. If his two earlier naps were short, then he will nap in his swing around 3:00-4:00 for 30-40 minutes. Daddy gets home around 3:00, so it's daddy playtime while mommy makes dinner. 5:00ish he nurses and then sits with us while we eat dinner. 6:00ish he eats cereal and a vegetable. 6:30 bath, 7:00 nurse, 7:30 sleep for the night. He has been waking once a night around 3:00am to nurse.

Hi, my daughter usually wakes up btwn 6:30-7:30 am. She drinks 6 oz at 8 am , plays in exersaucer or on floor. I read her a short book. She eats cereal with fruit at 8:45 then we go for a walk. She takes a short nap about 10:30-11. She plays some more and has 7 oz of formula and a veggie around 12. After that she plays some more. She naps around 1:30-2:15. Then we usually go out again--either another walk or drive to stores. Another 6-8 oz at 4:00. More rolling on floor, practicing sitting/standing, exersaucer, etc. She eats another bowl of cereal with fruit at 5:30. Plays with daddy for a while. Naps from 6:30-7. Bath sometime btwn 7-7:15. Bottle, 6-8 oz at 7:30 and she's asleep by 8pm. Occasionally she'll wake up in the middle of the night for pacifier or if she rolled over and can't get back over on her own.
