You asked me if I could tell you what my boy’s routine looked like so here it is. It is pretty much the same as the sample routine for a baby and toddler on page 143 of the fully revised and updated Save Our Sleep® book or page 135 of the old book.
I thought I would give you a rundown of last Sunday in the Tizzie household.
7 am I woke Cillian up and fed him, changed him and got him dressed for the day.
(Some days Darragh wakes at 7 if he hears Cillian and I either read to him, watch Brum with him or set him up on his easy PC while I feed Cillian. Today I actually fed them both in bed I got Cillian on the breast and then lay Darragh on the other side and fed him his bottle.)
8 am Darragh woke up and I gave him his morning bottle of milk, Cillian lay under the play centre while I gave Darragh his bottle.
8.45 am Darragh had his breakfast, Cillian was in my arm watching Darragh eat and Cillian and I gave Darragh a hand with the odd spoon full.
9 am Cillian went to bed. I dressed Darragh for the day and got the car packed to go to the beach. At 10 am I got Cillian out of his crib and put him in the car seat and we headed off to the beach 40 minutes away. (not our local one.) Nathan had left at 7.30 to cycle and he met us at the beach at 10.40 am where we transferred Cillian to his buggy.
11 am we were set up at the beach and I fed Cillian in a beach tent. Darragh played at the beach with a friend and we all left and went to a café for 12.30 pm where Darragh had lunch. At 1 pm I wrapped Cillian and put him to bed in his car seat and put Darragh in the buggy. As you will see from the Video they both slept. If Cillian had not transferred in the morning and had woken before 11 am I would have adjusted him afternoon sleep to a bit earlier as explained in the book.
1 pm both asleep and mummy time for me!! I had a coffee and too many chips! Click on the link at the top to watch the video!
3 pm Darragh woke up and had a drink and a snack while I fed Cillian and then we went for a quick walk before we headed home at 4.30 pm (Cillian nap time). We had to take a back road a 4 wheel drive route because the road through Anglesea was so busy.
We got home at 5.15 and I set Darragh up with his dinner and I bathed Cillian in the tummy tub on the kitchen table while Darragh sat beside us and ate.
5.50 pm Darragh had his bath while Cillian had a kick under his play centre again. ( Nathan was off doing the weekly shop)
6.10 pm I fed Cillian and Darragh had some time playing his Easy PC and then Nathan got home at about 6.30 am and gave Darragh his milk.
Both boys went to bed at 7 pm!!!!!!!!!!!
