So I've been a bit of a schedule mamma since dd was born. She is just turning 9 months. I credit her great sleeping habits STTN since 8 weeks and pretty much everything else to the schedule I have her in, and she's always hungry when its mealtime and knows when its naptime.
Anyway, lots of moms kinda frown upon it and say you'll be in for a surprise later. But how so?
Yes I admit, I do stress out a bit if she doesn't fall asleep at the exact time she does for naptime because I get worried she won't sleep later and it will just be a pattern. But I don't think I realllllly freak out, I just want her to keep the same routine. I know its inevitible that somewhere down the road she will break it somehow but right now it works.
My question is, moving forward from this age what can I expect from naps from a baby who has been STTN a well as length of night sleeps. Currently she sleeps from 845pm to 730pm, has an hour nap from 930am, and two 30 min naps at 1245pm and 4pm.
