Question about bedtime routine


I have recently started her bedtime routine of Bath, Bottle, Bed. Sometimes, though, she has had a bottle too recently to give her a bottle directly after her bath. So basically, the "bottle" part of the routine has been kind of optional. If she's due for one, I make it for her and give it to her whether she seems hungry or not. Otherwise, I just kind of put her down like normal and let her wake up when she's hungry. Does that seem okay??

Do whatever works for you.

I don't have a set bedtime for my LO - I just plan every day depending on when she's due a feed and how long she's been awake beforehand. Like if she was awake from 6pm and was due a bottle at 7:30, I'd bath her around 7pm and try and have her to bed by 8pm because she can't really last more than 2 hours without a sleep atm.

Sounds fine!

What I do is give LO his bath and then feed usually about 7pm. If he's had a feed at about 6pm, I tend to offer him a few more ounces, which he will generally take and then he sleeps about 10 hours xx

That sound fab. my Little boy is nearly 7 months. He has a bath at half 6 then his bedtime bottle then bed at 7ish, he dont wake till 8. I do think it helps starting a routine at a young age.

I do bath bottle bed but his feeding isnt at set times. We bath him at 9pm unless he hasn't slept much in which case we will bring it forward. I don't like to bath him straight after a bottle so sometimes I will change the timings if things to work around when I think his next feed will be. If he has a bottle an hour before a bath I will still offer him a bottle after the bath so he goes down full. He has done 9.30 - 4 ish a few times but no consisteny at all but he is only 8 weeks so I'm not expecting anything yet.

Sorry to babble lol

Xx
