Last night i bathed Christian at 6:30pm, fed him and got him into bed by 7:30pm.....got the girls in bed by 8:30pm. then Christian got up at 12:30am fed and went back to sleep and that was us until 7:40am. I am going to try and stick to that one.
Noah gets a bath when ever is convenient Usually any where between 7:30 and 9:30. He's in bed for the night between 10 and 10:30. Then he's up to nurse any where from 3:30 am - 5:00 am. If he's up at 3:30 he'll be up around 6:30 and if he's up at 5 am he'll be up around 9 am.
He's been in this routine since he was about 3 weeks or so. I'm hoping it will last!!
Not so great.. Hayden gets his bath and we get him to bed hopefully by 9. I used to bathe the baby right after him and do the bedtime routine with both of them, but I think having a bath so close to bed woke her up more than it helped her get tired, and she wouldn't go to sleep. So now I try to get her down right after Hayden, but I haven't been able to do that the last few nights because we had a lot to do. We all end up goign to bed around midnight. She eats then, and then again at 3 or 4 and then at 7 or 8. That's about when Hayden is up too. I just hate that I haven't had the energy to really put into making a good bedtime routine with her. Plus when I wake up to feed her in the night, I end up falling asleep half sitting up while burping her, so she sleeps on my chest pretty much the whole night. I really didn't want to co sleep but because I am too exhausted to help her fall asleep in the bassinet she is getting used to me holding her while she sleeps, or sleeping right next to me. She also sleeps a lot during the day and I think that's why she also won't sleep at bedtime. I swear, the two times a day I actually care if she sleeps, she is adamant about staying awake. Kills me!
So far, I'm still waiting for a better schedule to kick in so I know what time she wants to go to bed. Once winter is over, I'll give her a bath every night with Abby and just merge thier bedtime routines. Right now, she usually takes an evening nap and when she wakes up anywhere between 8-9, I'll put her in a sleepsack, nurse her, and she's usually out for the night.

On the nights she gets a bath it's usually around 8pm then she'll eat, and stay up a bit then takes a nap and will eat again between 11 and 12 and then goes down for the nights and has been sleeping till about 6 or even later. I'm not complaining
Its been hard to establish a routine with Ava because she is usually sleeping most of the day/night anyways so there is no real "bedtime" yet. But we usually put her down between 10 and 11 after she eats and she stays sleeping until about 2:30 or 3am and she is up to eat and then again around 5 or 6am and then again around 9 or 10am. She used to consistently want to eat at 10:30pm, 1am, 3:30am and 6:30am without fail but lately she has seemingly cut out her 1am feeding so hopefully that is a good sign! We usually bathe her during the afternoon or early evening because its just easier for us but eventually when she starts getting more than 2 or 3 baths per week I want that to be part of her bedtime routine too along with a bedtime story.
Routine?? We don't really have one here. She is up most of the day with short naps in between and then sleeps from midnight til about 7-9am, with one feeding in the night. I figure thats as much of a schedule as I am going to get. It seems to work better if she sets the schedule. lol
Thank you Mistyx5 for my siggy.
Its pretty good. She has been eating pretty much 7am,11am,3pm,7pm and 11pm. So we usually bathe her around 9ish before her 11pm bottle and she sleeps till 7am. I eventually of course want bedtime earlier than 11pm but Im sure not complaining now!
Well let me see..she naps off and on during the day but she has a loud brother, so she does not sleep too much nor too deep during the day. As time begins to settle down later she gets fussy as she is tired and wants to sleep. Depending on the night she falls asleep somewhere between 7:30 pm and 9:00 pm most nights. She tends to get up during the course of the night once at about 2 to 3 am. Then she is normally still sleeping when Rylin wakes up and he ends up waking her up at anywhere from 7 am to 9 am. She tends to have baths in the morning because she has this habit of nestling up to me and she gets too hot and breaks out in heat bumps. I bathe her and they tend to clear up a bit. She is probably about as good on a schedule as we are going to get.

No real daytime routine yet, we're getting his reflux under control so his mood and sleep/food wants really depends on how that is doing. At night though he doesn't go to bed until 10-11 (night owl just like mommy), he's up between 3-4 for his nighttime feeding, then sleeps again until 7-8 when he's up for the rest of the day. I cannot for the life of me get him back to sleep after.
The past few nights Collin has been going to be around 11-12, and then sleeps until 5-6, up again at 8-9, and then we're up for good...usually. Sometimes we go back to sleep until 11, it's nice Hoping this routine sticks!
We TRY to make carter sleep between his 7 & 10 feedings, but it doesnt seem to work. He's up till about 11pm every night. but he's been sleeping 4-6 hours at night! and daytime he's on a very great schedule!
