Daily schedule for an 8 month old? S ♥ J ♥ L 1 child; 3 angel babies; Philadelphia, PA, United States 3875 posts

I try pretty hard to keep LO on a good schedule for feelings and naps, but I'm curious what other moms of kids around his age have as their daily schedule



Here's ours:
9am wake up
9-10 get dressed, watch a little of the sunny side up show
10:30 breakfast (fruit)
10:30/11 feeding
11-1 playtime and a lite snack (diced apples)
1-4 nap time
4-5:30 playtime and feeding
5:30/6 dinner (some sort of veggie)
6-7:30 nap (sometimes he won't nap)
7:30-9 play time and hang with daddy before work
9 bedtime/feeding

DD goes to bed between 10- 10:30 (most nights)
wakes up between 6-7:30 where she gets 6-8 oz then usually goes back to sleep
if she goes back to sleep, she libel to get up anywhere between 9-12
she gets breakfast 1st thing- fruit with oatmeal mixed in it
followed by 4-6 oz
usually try to get her to nap at this time- she'll sleep anywhere from 20 mins to 2 or 3 hrs.
play in the floor/cruise in walker/play in exersaucer (usually rotated out)
2-4 hrs later (depends when she gets hungry) she gets a veggie with rice mixed in
followed by another 4-6 oz.
snack-usually yogurt melts or cheese puffs
then she either eats again or has baby yogurt for a snack 1-2 hrs before bed.

Doesn't sound too far from the lines if my DS. I was just curious how other little babies are that are around his age. In wondering if I try to get him to sleep around 10 if he will sleep a little later for poor SO. He gets off working 8pm-8amand comes exhausted but has to stay up for LO to get up, feed and change him, ten have MIL take over until I get home from class so he can finally sleep.



I wonder if pushing back bedtime by an hour will maybe help LO sleep longer and not be as cranky in the morning.

we learned early on that putting DD to bed before 10 (any earlier than 9:30) she will be up at the crack of dawn, won't want to go back to sleep, and be crabby all day. her sleep is screwed up but it's her doing. some nights she'll fight sleep till midnight. sometimes she won't nap in the day so gets sleep early, but we keep her up so she'll sleep. we won't let her fall asleep after 7:30. if she falls asleep around 5-7, we get her up by 8. if it's after 7:30, we wake her up after an hr and give her a bottle before bed (that's every night too).

DD is 9 months.... that sounds pretty exact to our schedule!! Lately though due to teething that afternoon nap is more of a no go :?

my son is 9 months now but what his schedule has been for the longest time is, we wake up at 730, 8am he will have an 8oz bottle, watch one show of mickey mouse clubhouse so i can fully wake up and we cuddle, 930-10 he eats a pureed fruit, between this time he plays, walks, whatever. 1130-1230 he drinks another 8oz bottle, goes down for a nap about 5 minutes after the bottle.. 230-3 he wakes up from his nap eats a veggie for a late lunch (id give him lunch earlier but i want him to have more formula than anything) he plays around 4-530 he eats a little snack, some of a banana or something, plays around 6-730 has dinner, normally a pureed meat and veggie. he gets ready for bed, plays around a bit 930 he has another 8oz bottle and goes down for bed at 10. than is out all night.. lol. thats what a normal day for him looks like. if we are running around its different though. just by a tad.
