For the past couple of months, Maddie has had no schedule to speak of. Some days she takes 2-3 long naps, some days she takes 6-7 short naps. She wakes up every night once to eat, but it can be anywhere from 12:30 to 4 am. Sometimes she wakes up for the day around 6, sometimes 8. I'm not even sure what her bedtime is, b/c she naps all evening long.
It makes it a little hard to get her solids in some days, b/c I never
know if she's going to be up for 2 hours or 30 minutes. But I keep
reading that solids are just for practice right now anyway, so that's
not a big deal.
I'm not really concerned about it, she sleeps when she's tired and she's very happy when she's awake, so I think she's doing fine. I actually kind of like her not being on a set schedule b/c there's no time of the day or night that we can't go out, she always just adapts. I was just wondering if this is weird for a baby or if lots of other babies are like this too.
Re: Anyone else not on a schedule?
We did have a VERY fluid schedule, until J started eating 3 meals a day. Now it's a little more routine, but still very flexible (except for bedtime & that's b/c J SCREAMS if he's tired & is ready to go to bed for the night). He usually wakes up around 7:30am and goes down for a nap around 9am (unless we have plans - then he misses it). He gets at least 2 naps a day (9am & sometime in the afternoon after lunch), sometimes 3 if his 1st nap is short. Other than that, we're pretty flexible until about 5pm...then it's dinner, bath, nurse, bed! J wouldn't have it any other way ?
As long as she's happy & healthy, I think that it's great! Can you believe how old they are getting?!?!?!
Baby J is here! Born on her mama's birthday.
