DS2 is a very short sleeper (daytime naps never longer than 40 mins) so no official routines fit right for us. Night sleep is horrendous still (still in 40 minute bursts mostly) and I keep getting frustrated with the official routines that give 2-3 hour naps. We are so far off that but I want to shoot for a routine that suits DS2 better.

If you have a roughly 5mo baby who is FF, just started weaning and is a short sleeper like mine, would you mind sharing your routine for us to try? I am a SAHM...

DS is now older but still a crappy sleeper I really struggled with routine but this is more or less what I did
6:30 wake up
7:00 bottle
8:30 nap 45 minutes usually
11:00 bottle
12:00 nap
3:00 bottle
4;00 nap
6:30 bottle (bed time)

When I started weaning I gave him his first tasters after his 11 am bottle

Hope this helps smile

Thought might be helpful if you have the next step we were on 3 meals a day by 6 months so here is that one too

7:00 bottle
8:00 breakfast
9:00 nap
10:00 bottle
12:00 lunch
3:00 bottle
4:00 nap
5:00 tea

All our naps started as 30-40 minutes but he now has 90 minutes after lunch? Full belly ?
