    As the title says what is a typical 24hour period like for you and your LO....?

    Should have added my own...here it is...

    7am-8am Wakes up,feed, change nappy. If she is wide awake then a little cuddle with mummy in bed.
    8am - Back to sleep for a couple hours, i get up (do some chores & get dressed) or go back to sleep.
    10am - Another feed, dressed for the day and nappy change.
    10.30am - 2.30pm Plays on her mat for a little, then a cuddle and another nap. I have just started going out for a little walk too. (need to lose weight!)
    2.30pm - 5pm Feed, nappy change then playtime, cuddle and another sleep.
    5pm - 7pm Feed her then hand her over to Daddy(if he is home) for a nappy change. Daddy cuddles and playtime.
    Start thinking about dinner, decide and eventually cook dinner.
    7pm - 8pm Sleep.
    8pm - Feed then bathtime (she screams her head off if i bath her before feeding!)
    9pm - Lots and lots of cuddles whilst she falls asleep.
    11pm - all of us go up to bed
    3am-4am she wakes for a feed then back to sleep till morning!

    Although the last few nights/days have been nothing like this ....lol She is feeling poorly.

    In between all her sleeping periods i do chores and go on BnB! :D

    Here we go!
    7:30am - UP! Breastfeed for 30 mins infront of telly or in bed (if it's very cold lol)
    8am - wake Daddy up. Change Ally's nappy and remove him from the grobag for the day! Daddy feeds Ally a bottle while Mummy has a bath.
    8:30am - Mummy plays with Ally on his play mat/does the dishes while Ally watches from his bumbo/general playtime.
    9:30am - nap!
    11:30am (uh oh, very near now!) - up! bottle please Mummy! (sometimes he'll go to 12 though and we play first)
    12:30pm - time to go out and do something. A walk, anything. We just have to leave the house most days!
    3pm - bottle please followed by little naps and playing
    6pm - bottle and booby time
    7pm - nappy time, bath
    8:30pm - ready for another feed even though it's only been 2 and a half hrs (I never get this...)
    9pm - sleep til morning with a few moments of stirring in between where Mummy has to put his dummy back in and 'shush' him.

    obviously it can change a bit...his napping is a bit weird at the moment.
    But almost on cue - he's waking up!

    our routine is a little bit like yours whisper (particularly the walk and reason for it lol) but not the nap bit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    do you just know they're tired and put them 'down' and they sleep???

    cos i feed abs, she'll go to sleep, i'll put her down she'll scream!

    i know she's tired, but she'll only sleep ON me. or occassionally in the pram.

    how do you get them to nap???

    Well after a feed Amelia is always really sleepy but she does wake up then i place her on the mat with the musical toy thingy above her she loves looking at the flashing lights (her arms and legs flayling (sp?) about) she talks to it and generally tires herself out.

    When she starts getting grouchy i pick her up, talk to her a little (if she avoids looking at me then i know she is tired).

    We have a cuddle and i let her get really sleep or actually fall alseep on me then i place her in the pram. Or if i place her in the pram on her tummy she will fall asleep by herself.

    I only let her sleep on her tummy if i am around. Does abs like sleeping on her tummy?

    Routine? What the hell is one of those? :rofl: She had such a good routine I don't know what happened. All I know is she has set bottle times that she doesn't even always drink because she prefers boobie.. :dohh:

    7-8am wake up, change bum and have bottle and see daddy off to work.
    8-9am cuddles and play with mummy
    9am - on to play mat and play for a bit sometimes tummy time while mummy does housework etc.
    10am - change bum, wash and dress for maddi, goes under cot mobile and sometimes naps, while mummy gets ready.
    11am - bottle and we often go out, round mums or shopping, having lunch out or at mums - not everyday we have some days in and weekends are different with daddy, sometimes my friends come over etc
    3/4pm - home if we have been out bottle normally before 3pm as she eats like a piglet during the day :rofl:
    5pm - try to get bath in early as James comes home quite late, mummy does bottles while maddi naps/bouncer chair/mobile/play mat/bumbo etc another bottle normally
    6:45pm - james comes home from work and we have dinner while maddi watches and or naps.
    7pm - play time and bottle with daddy
    8pm - normally bedtime
    8pm - mummy and daddy time :blush: and maddi sleeps through till morning

    this is very roughly we do lots of different things, sometimes i have lots of housework and we have a day in or sometimes we go out. its the pattern with attempt to follow :)

    Exactly! We don't have a routine at all to be honest. I just wondered what a 'typical' (if there is ever one of those too) 24hour period is like.

    I never even thought about reading to Amelia before reading that others do it too, i tried it today and she loved it! :D

    I only started reading a week ago cos i was like shes 14 weeks whats the point!:blush: It is very strange but it really calms her down. IT must be something to do with babies liking to hear mummy.

    no, she doesn't, she grunts like a little pigie!lol.

    i suppose taking her in the pram and letting her nap like that is ok then... i can't rock her (she just wants boob)

    i want to be able to put her down and she settles herself to sleep, not sure how and when that will happen:dohh:
