Anna's (Rough) Daily Schedule, Take Two

Have I mentioned that I am getting a hang at Anna's sleep-play-feed schedule? Because I am! After 2 1/2 months of living in chaos, I *think* me and this little girl of mine are finally on the same sheet of music.

I am much better at reading her sleepy cues and putting her down (which is usually 1.5 - 2 hours from the time she wakes up) before she gets too fussy. During her awake time, I feed her, change her, and play with her. She takes better naps in the morning and early afternoon than in the evening. Anna is all about catnaps later in the day.

Our daytime routine is fairly regular.

Then at night, hubs reads to her around 8pm. After story time, she gets a bottle and falls asleep for the day by 9 - 9:30pm. She is really good at sleeping longer stretches - minimum of 6 hours - so we wake up around 3-4am to feed her and she wakes up around 7:30-8am in the morning.

Since the last time I blogged about her schedule @ 1 month, I have seen significant improvement!

However, I know babies' schedules change constantly. Just as I get use to a schedule that I and Anna seem to have settled into, something is bound to change. All I know is that I will toss the schedule out of the window if I see Anna needing to eat or sleep more on a particular day. Because ultimately, if baby is well-rested with good naps and fed regularly, the whole time she's awake during the day she will be laughing, playing, and happy.

    I agree with knickkancks - Anna enjoys her Uncle Andy. Is this your brother or hubby's?
