Meh....It's beginning to take shape. He's usually up for the day around 6:30, then we take big sister to school around 8. He stays up for about an hour or less after we get back, then naps until roughly 10:00 or 11:00, which gives me a great chunk of time to drink my coffee, work out, laundry, blah blah blah. He might cat nap here and there throughout the day, and he's pretty much still just eating whenever he's hungry. We pick up DD at 3:45. Bath and bottle happen sometime around 9, and he's usually asleep by 10pm. I should probably go to bed earlier, but I'll admit I like that quiet time after the kiddos and DH are asleep, and it's just me and the dog doing absolutely nothing.

Spencer has been on a pretty good schedule since he was about a month old, and luckily he for right into the same schedule we have for the boys. He wakes up between 6:30-9:00am (depends on if the older boys decide to be loud before heading off to school), after he wakes up, we sing the good morning song, my dad always sang to us when we were kids, while he stretches and coos, then DF changes his diaper and feeds him a 6-8oz (depends on if he woke up to eat that night), then after about 30min-1hr later he gets dressed and a diaper change if needed, then we play, then he naps in his swing, and I clean the house/laundry etc. as much as possible while he sleeps, then its more eating, playing, singing, napping diaper changes etc., until my older boys get home. Then he sits in his bouncy seat or my lap while i help with homework, make dinner, while I make dinner he normally wants to eat so he gets in his bouncy and my boys take every other day turns feeding him a bottle, then we get to eat while he sits in my lap at the table for family dinners (minus DF during the week since he works 2nd shift) then its playtime with mommy and big brothers, then the older boys get their baths done, Spencer gets a bath around 7:30, gets pjs on and is out no later then 9:00pm, but has started waking up when daddy gets home at 11pm and playing for an hour and then eatting and then STTN! He will sleep in his swing until DF and I go to bed then he comes to our bed for the night.

No schedule for my little guy. He sleeps and eats when he feels like it. The only constant is his bedtime, which is between 7 and 8 pm.

Leo has a schedule that works for him its kind of off right now because he is in hoods 3 month growth spurt but he usually has 2 or 3 2 got naps a day and eats and plays between the naps. I would give times if they were constant each day but they change

No schedule is forming during the day yet. He does seem to always be sleeping during lunch time though (which is really convenient). He is usually read to go down at night at 730 along with his sister (who is 2 1/2). I love that I can nurse him and tell DD stories before she falls asleep.

It's more of a routine...

she eats on demand...which is every 45 minutes to an hour when awake...sigh...and every 2-3 hours when sleeping (Yawn), Basically she wakes up reliably around 5:30, I bring her to bed with us and she nurses as she likes until 7 when DH leaves for school and wakes me up to say goodbye. Then she's up to play and chill (and eat...at least twice) before a 45 minute nap anywhere between 9 and 10:30. Up, eats more, We try for a 1am nap...usually ends up being 2...sleeps for 2-3 hours if we're lucky...up eat, play, eat, short nap (sometimes), bedtime routine 7:30-8pm...then asleep in her swing whenever we can manage to get her to sleep (anywhere between 8:30 and 10pm)...and then she'll usually sleep 3 hours, and then up every two hours after that)...

We have a loose schedule too. She set it herself. I am not a schedule person and its very weird that my baby dictates my life. I'm in trouble for the future for sure.
She screamed for 3-4 weeks pretty much all day (it was really fun) until we set this schedule and now she is much happier. (thank god) She cries though when the schedule is off.

5am-6amISH- wake up for feeding in the big bed and sleep
7-830ISH- wake up, get dressed
9ISH- play, eat, CHILL with paci (mom gets her coffee and really only break at this time)
10ISH- nap time! and its always in the wrap on mom with the pacifier. I'm trying to break her out of this but she is fighting me on it. Wrap lasts at least til 12 sometimes to 1-2pm.
12-3PMish- wake up, change, eat, play, snuggle mom
5-6PMish- If I'm lucky she'll nap again. (in the wrap) short nap- usually about an hour.
630PM- EAT (dad is home and I usually get passed off to play with him after)
7-9PM- chill with dad and eat
9-10PMish- final feed, bath, PJs and paci and into the bed I go where I usually fall asleep with no problems.

Wow poor you. Your LO sounds like a snacker. Does she take a paci.. that could help her have longer periods without food. Have you discussed this with the ped? You need some rest... Hugs.

Our Pedi basically wants us to force her to go 2-3 hours between feedings but I refuse. We tried a week of pushing it by 10 minutes to get her to eat more and go longer but it didn't work. (I'm not a huge fan of our Pedi, but it's really hard to get one here)

We are seeing an LC once a week (and there's a Pedi at that clinic that sees her too) - they don't like that she's eating so often, but they feel that pacis actually make hungry babies notice their hunger more (she's actually eating a lot, if she was just sucking, then a paci would be fine) so anyway, they want me to limit the paci, she's not a big fan of it anyway, she just uses it to go to sleep. I'm on meds to increase my production, hoping that makes a difference in the next month, if not we're going to start her with some solid food (not cereal)

We don't really have a daytime schedule, just one for bedtime which always begins at 7:15 with me making him a bottle, changing him, putting him in pajamas, then feeding him until he is full. Then I lay him in his crib (usually still awake) and turn on his mobile. He usually cries for a second, then falls asleep. But if he is still crying by the time the music on the mobile ends, I will go in and rock him to sleep. Luckily that doesn't happen very often. Then he sleeps until anywhere between 9 and 10 the next morning.
