He's on a loose schedule. I watched his cues for a week or so, and this is the routine he fell into. Obviously, if he's hungry before it's time I feed on demand, or if he is extra tired I put him to sleep.

somewhere between 5-7AM Typical wake up for food time. After he eats I put him right back to bed
9AM wake up for the day, nurse, get dressed, play
10:30 nap
12:00 wake up, nurse, go for a walk if it's nice. He usually falls asleep in his stroller. If its' not nice he usually goes down for his nap around 1:15
2:30 nurse, play
3:30 nap
5:00 nurse, Daddy time
6:00 catnap
7:00 nurse which is more of comfort nursing for this feeding, chill time (hang out in bouncer, sit with daddy, cuddle and watch TV, etc.)
8:30 begin bedtime routine (bath, bottle, Bible story, prayers)
9:00 bedtime, and he almost always falls right asleep and sleeps until at least 5

I mentioned it in another post, but if you're interested in getting your baby into a good routine, I highly suggest "Secrets of the Baby Whisperer" by Tracy Hogg. He was STTN within 2 days of starting (a change from getting up twice a night) and it's soooooooo nice to have a predictable day. Everyone is happier now, me, DH and Caleb. And the best part was, I never had to let him CIO and most of his fussiness disappeared. I know it may not work for everyone, but it was a major help to us.

Philip is kinda on a routine too, by his own doing. He nurses all throughout the day, so I'm not sure of times there.
Wake up 730-8am
AM nap 9am (30-60min)
Afternoon nap 12/1pm (2-3hrs)
Catnap 5-6pm (30-60min)
Bedtime 7-8pm
He sleeps solidly till wake up time, only getting up briefly to nurse. I'd say at 1-2am and again at 5-6am.
He's a great sleeper!
