If baby comes on time, I'm going to be giving birth in 2 months. I know that a lot of my friends have recommended getting the baby on a schedule, and I am in agreement, (within reason and using parental instincts of course). I know that when a baby is first born he is not schedulable, and will need to be cared for according to his needs at the moment. However, at what point is it possible to start a routine? Additionally, when we first bring him home, what do we do with him? I know that sounds like a dumb question, but since I'm bottle feeding do I just make sure he's fed every four hours and changed at least as frequently and let him tell me what he wants the rest of the time? What type of routine have you used with your baby, assuming he's of age to begin a "schedule"?
