Baby Schedule 11 Months

Here's what Henry is doing in a typical day:

Breastfeeding 3 times per day
Solid Food 4 times per day + Sippy cup of water/juice
Napping 2 times per day
Sleeping in his Crib Overnight 10-11 hours

11 Months
6:30 Wake and Breastfeed
8:30 Breakfast
10:00-11:30 Nap
12:00 Lunch
1:45 Breastfeed
2:15-3:45 Nap
4:00 Snack
6:00 Dinner
7:30 Breastfeed and Bed

I'm getting pretty excited about weaning. I'm going to continue his morning wake up and bedtime feedings after his first birthday, but I am excited to omit all mid-day breast-feedings. I plan on cutting out the morning wake up feeding by 15 months and the bedtime feeding by 18 months, but I'll really just play that by ear. I may change my mind. Henry is drinking around 6 oz from a sippy cup of water with around 1 oz of juice mixed in throughout the day. He drinks around 3-4 oz with his 4 p.m. snack and dinner which seems to be when he is most thirsty. Since he is going to bed later, we pushed back dinner until around 6 p.m. which gives my husband and I more time to prepare our own dinner so we can all eat together!

Henry started aggressively pushing back at his bedtime in the past month and getting up a little earlier in the morning. I guess the days of 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. peaceful sleeping are behind me, at least for the moment. He's also napping a little longer during the day which may be replacing some of that overnight sleep time. If he's not tired, he will sit up and cry. I think he's a little late with this behavior actually, it usually happens around 9-10 months, but I'll just consider myself lucky it didn't happen earlier. I discovered his ideal bedtime is 3.5-4 hours after his last nap. I don't let him nap past 4 p.m. Now, he has been going to sleep without any fussing so I think the schedule is working well for him.
