She goes to nursery in 10 days as I go back to work Meal times at nursery are brekkie 9am, lunch approx 11.30am, tea 3.30-4pm. It means I don't have to give her tea when I get home, but I'm wondering in my last week whether to try these times at home to try and get her a bit more used to it? It will mean her routine is:
7am - bottle
9am - breakfast
10am - small snack (usually fruit or sugar free cookie according to nursery)
11.30am - lunch then nap
1.30-2pm - bottle
5.30pm - snack
She'll be dropping her mid morning feed (I can't see her wanting a milk feed between 9am breakfast and 11.30 lunch, but still be getting one mid pm, and I'll put in a yoghurt type snack at 5.30pm ish. Does this sound OK? She'll probably also nap on the way there and back (30 min drive).
i was really worried about this when i was due to start work when my lo was 9 months. he had just got in a really good routine with milk and solids after a slow weight gain and problems with milk due to reflux. i was worried that all there times were different and he wouldnt eat well and drop off again with his weight. i even rang them up days before he was due to start saying what if he doesnt eat what they offer at a set time will he have to go hungry till there next sitting, they probably thought i was nuts lol. they assured me he wouldnt go hungry. tbh i did not change my home routine at all as it worked well but since he as started nursery (3 days a week) he follows there rouitine well, i think he eats more there as they also offer 2 snacks a day as well as meals, normally he doesnt bother much with snacks at home as he eats good size meals but i think seeing all the other kids eating probably made him feel left out so he eats them too lol.
i'm sure your lo will adapt well too to nursery routine. good luck with goimg back to work x
