I guess but it's not strict. He wakes up around the same time and goes to bed around the same time. His naps have been all over the place lately because he is starting to go down to one nap per day.

His schedule use to be a little better but lately it's been all over the place at times.

Sort of, she's usually up around the same time and goes to bed around the same time. Her one nap is normally around 12ish - but I just go by when she's tired...today she went down at 1:10. She's usually hungry around the same times every day too.

Not really, unless a semi-regular bedtime of +/- 2 hours counts... I've tried schedules, non-strict ones at least, but DS would rarely follow them for more than a couple of days before everything changed again.

nope. we go to bed about the same time every night, that is it. She naps when she wants to and wakes up when she wants to (usually the same time every day).

No... we follow his lead. He was in his own routine for a couple weeks there, but it didn't last.

I actually think I am lucky to have a baby who does great without a schedule. We are not predictable people.... our lives are crazy at times. So, we just go with the flow.

We're more or less like this too.

We have a routine, an order of how things go. Eating, playing, sleeping... its flexible for time though

We do have a schedualed start of the day between 6:30-7am because DD#1 goes to school, DD#2 daycare, DH and I work. Bedtime is a set time too. 6:30-7pm for Karrigan and 7-7:30pm for Kayla. Both sleep through, weekends they sleep as long as they want, usually between 8-9am

Mine all pretty much set their own schedules. Once I saw a pattern (like with sleep) I encouraged it to continue, but never actually set any kind of schedule.

No schedule here really. Now that she isnt wanting to nap anymore things are even more wild. She gets up at 7ish and lunch is usually at 11ish. That's like the only two things that stay at around the same time plus bedtime. Lunchtime is a relic from when she used to nap right after.

She sets her own. Usually she goes to bed between 8pm and 930pm and wakes around 9am. But it can vary a bit. Her one nap a day is usually around 1ish, so I try to feed her lunch around 12.

Ds has always had more structure to his day, mainly out of pure necessity. I won't bore with details, but we started out with Babywise type of thing, but stopped after a few months. The after his bout with encephalopathy he no longer let us know when he was hungry (4 years later, he finally started to express hunger and thirst), so the feeding schedule helped us make sure he was eating enough. Since then, he does have a pretty solid routine, partly for his own comfort, partly due to his school and meds times.

Dd hasn't really had any kind of a schedule, but more of a routine based around the events of the day. She wakes herself at the same time, likes to nap after we put ds on the bus, then after that its go-with-the-flow until bedtime.

For me, I found not having a schedule to be soooo much less stressful, but that's kind of my style; schedules stress me out.

LOL! No. We have routines but no set schedule. I try to get him down for a nap between 11-1 every day and get him to bed between 7-8pm.

It's a rough schedule of sorts but nothing is set in stone and the times are a bit flexible.

We have some routines...mostly mine though. The kiddos don't have schedules...things get done when ever it needs to. EAch kiddo just lets me know. It is funny because before kids I was a schedule/list type person but honestly I don't want my kids to turn out like me...lol...I have OCD and an anexity disorder.

My daughter has been on a schedule since day one. Her day is completely scheduled and when I pick her up from daycare her nights are strictly scheduled as well. Allows for more peace and less chaos in life. All my kids are on a schedule and it also promotes stability. I used to think I would let the kids lead but nope its my way or the highway!

Are you an AP parent, meaning following basic AP ideas, like parenting to the child's needs? I mean, I am not meaning to sound snarky (so hopefully you understand what I am asking here) - but AP really is typically synonymous with what is also called child-led parenting & it is very unusual to hear an AP parent say something like "it's my way or the highway"...???

We don't do a schedule & our routine is pretty stable, but nothing that we can't work around. He gets up with an hour or so of the same time most days, same for naps & bedtimes & eating. But to be able to sy he gets up at X time...and nap at X time, etc...I can't. If he gets up later he may nap at the same time, it might be a little later & napping late sometimes doe spush bedtime a bit, but other times it seems to have no effect. His naps even vary in that sometimes he seems to sleep an hour & other times as long as 3.5 hrs. I used to try to wake him, but that just makes him grumpy & letting him sleep usually seems to do fine by him....so now I just let him sleep if he wants to unless I HAVE to get out of the house or something....but I dread it if I have to wake him. He does NOT have a sunny disposition when woken. LOL

We have somewhat of a schedule, but it changes based on her needs. Since I'm a WOHM, some things have to get done at a certain time (e.g. I have to wake her up to nurse and get ready for daycare at a certain time in the morning even if she is still sleeping because I have to be out the door by a certain time). Of course at daycare there is a schedule/routine (e.g. lunch at 11, nap at 12, outside play at 3:30 etc.), but that too sometimes changes based on the needs of the kids. I try to get her in bed by 8, but if she's not ready then I'll keep her up a while longer.
