DD is 12 months now but it was something like this at 10 months...

Up at 7am, 7oz milk.
Breakfast at 8am.
Nap 9.30- 10.15am.
Lunch 12.15pm
Nap 1.15 - 2.30pm
5oz milk when she woke up
Dinner 5pm
Bath and bed at 7-7.30pm.
7oz milk at bedtime.

We usually go out for a walk or to a group in the morning and see friends in the afternoon.

Up 7-7.15am,8oz bottle,changed and dressed
Dropped off at grannys or childminder at 8am where she gets toast or a yogurt
8oz bottle about 12pm
DH picks her up at 4pm,has another 8oz bottle
Dinner about 5.30-6pm,bath and ready for bed
Bed between 8-9pm,maybe another bottle if she is awake any later.
9 nights out of 10 she sleeps right through.

As you can probably tell this isnt by any means a strict routine,i'm not much of a routine person myself so never got the baby into one. I have a freakishly happy,easy going baby though and she fits into our lives rather than us fitting around her. For example,dh had a week of work last week so he would bring her into bed with him for another hours sleep before getting up at 8am when I went to work.

My 10 nearly 11 month old. Boob when wakes at around 7.
I try breakfast at 8.sometimrs he has it but mostly not.
After school run at around 10,try breakfast again and he'll usually eat it.
Nap from 11.30 to 12.30 or little longer.
Lunch at 1.
If I'm working, no breastfeed until 3 or 4,otherwise whenever he wants, usually around 2.
Naps 45 minutes at around 3.
Snack around 4.
Dinner at 6.30 with everyone, not always successful. He's a terrible water. I might try again in an hour with something tastier and in peace.
Breastfed a couple of times before bed at 8 to 8.30.

Sureimgrand Wed 26-Nov-14 22:05:19

Oh yeah and a boob buffet through the night.

She is still waking once or twice for a night bf but eats like a horse and is a big girl and genuinely seems hungry when she wakes.

Jeffery Sun 30-Nov-14 09:21:38

Misletoe, why do you need to stop bf? Im back to work soon and intend to do a morning bf and bedtime bf. She can have milk from a cup in the day if she wants... But its not vital. Does your baby eat well?
