Baby Schedule 8 through 9 1/2 Months

Here's what Henry was doing...

Breastfeeding 5 times per day
Solid Food 3 times per day + Sippy cup of water/juice
Napping 2 times per day
Sleeping in his Crib Overnight 12 hours

8 through 9 ½ Months 
7:00 Wake and Breastfeed
8:00 Breakfast
10:00 Breastfeed
10:30-12:00 Nap
12:00 Lunch
2:00 Breastfeed
2:30-3:45 Nap
4:00 Breastfeed
5:30 Dinner
7:00 Breastfeed and Bed

Daylight savings occurred during this period shifting everything up from our prior 6 a.m. start time. My son did not magically start sleeping until 7 a.m. instead of 6 a.m. If I knew how to make such a thing happen, it would be magic indeed!

As rough as daylight savings is with a baby... it helped me to eliminate the late afternoon nap. He was going down for his last nap between 4 and 4:30 p.m. With daylight savings, I was not willing to put him down for a nap after 5 p.m. so I cut that one out. Some days he woke around 3 p.m. from his afternoon nap and it was a long stretch until bedtime, but he smoothed that out and started sleeping until at least 3:30-3:45 most days.

Looking at the world from his own perspective...
8 Months
