Our Parent-Led Routine
She goes down for her afternoon nap at 2pm with the same strategy of a bottle before and after. (Usually it is about two ounces each feeding. This girl is a nibbler, like her mom - I grazed through my entire pregnancy as full meals did not sit well with me!).
I am home by 4:45 and we nurse right away and then all go out for a family walk or run. Walking means she is in a carrier, and a run = jogging stroller. It is awesome - she loves being outside, especially if there are doggies around. She squeals with delight if she sees a dog! So funny because we don't even have one.
Same routine around the dinner table at 6, and bath at 7. She is put in the crib at 7:30 on the dot.
So far, so good. It was a bit nutty there for awhile when she was taking naps here and there but never at set times and she was sometimes asleep when it was my lunch hour. We are grateful to have such a happy, healthy baby. She is not too interested in food yet but little by little we are trying new things.
How is it possible that it is almost OCTOBER?! Time flies. The nights are long but the years are short...so they say...
