DDT - October 17

Hey, just wanted to see what your lo's daily routines are like at this age. My ds is 8 months old. He starts the day at 6:30-7am. Gets a bottle (8oz). Breakfast at 8am (5-6tbsp cereal). Bath at 8:30am. Nap at 9am (1hr). Walk at 10:30am. Bottle at 12pm (8oz). Nap at 12:30pm (1-1.5hrs). Lunch at 2pm (6tbsp fruit). Catnap at 4pm (30-45mins). Dinner at 5pm (6-7tbsp meat/veggie combo). Walk at 6:15pm. Bath at 6:45pm. Book, bottle (8oz) and bed by 7pm. Also, what does play time involve for you mums. I feel like ds and myself are getting bored with the same things every day. Its actually driving me slightly nutty! We rotate between the floor with books and toys, exersaucer, jumperoo & high chair. He only seems to be interested in new toy for 2-3 days and then its old news. He will actually toss it away if I hand it to him. What toys do you recommend that have been a big hit with your lo's? I also try to get out 1x a day if possible. He enjoys going for car rides and I think appreciates getting out of the house. I even tried enticing him with kitchen utensils yesterday and that kept him interested for max. 10mins. Do I have a high maintainence baby or what! lol!

BTW my ds isn't crawling yet. He shuffles on his tummy & army crawls only when he wants something very badly.

Hey DDT, well Logan's schedule is, up 6:30-7, 8 oz bottle, breakfast (6 tbsp cereal, 3 tbsp fruit, puffs) at 8:30, nap 9-10:30, snack at 10:30 (yogurt), 11:15 walk, 12:00 lunch (8 tbsp vegg/meat, 4 tbsp fruit, puffs) 1-2:30 nap 3:00 8 oz bottle, we go out here somewhere store/park/walk, 5 supper (7 tbsp cereal, 4 tbsp veg, 4 tbsp fruit, puffs) 6:15 bath, 6:30 8 oz bottle 7 bed. As for toys... his must haves are a fisher price piano, it converts to different stages, so before he was crawling, he'd sit at it, now I have it so he pulls himself to stand and play at it.. he plays with this all day long and has for months now!! the other must have we have is a little tunnel, lights and music go off when he crawls through it, and he stands at it, and sits in the tunnel playing..I've been noticing lately too that he loves making noise, I gave him to tops to pots the other day!! wow it was loud, dh complained saying I think he has enough toys!! but you're right I think they get bored. I also rotate my toys a little, I put them away for a few days and then bring them back..
