Any mummies out there that can share their daily routines for their 1 year olds?(15 Posts)
Including feeding times, milk times, nap times and sleep! My son turns one in a week and I'm just interested to know what kind of schedule he should be on. He's not a great sleeper and I sometimes worry he's sleeping too much in the day. Thanks a lot! <3 xxxx
7am - up, boob, play
8am - breakfast, play/go out
10am - nap
11 - up and play/go out
12 - lunch and boob then play
2-4 - nap
4- snack then play
5.30 dinner then quieter play, bath, books
7 boob and go to bed, asleep by 8.
Lots of other breastfeeds scattered through the day.
Wake up anytime between 5:45 and 7:15 for a 6oz bottle
Nap around 10 for 1 hour. (Used to fantastic at napping but now I find it difficult so I let him watch TV and when he drifts off I take him to his cot)
11:30 bottle of milk (we try breakers but bottles are more preferred)
13:00 ish lunch
15:00-16:00 6oz bottle/Beaker of milk
Nap time. Sometimes 30 mins, sometimes 2 hrs
19:00 a little porridge to fill baby's tummy in the hope of a good night sleep
Usually sleeps through 9/10 times. But when he does wake up he's up for a couple of hours.
Wakes a few times in the night to BF. Fed to sleep for all naps and bedtime.
My DD is 13 months and this is our routine when she’s not in nursery
7/7.30 wakes up 7oz bottle (half formula, half cows milk)
8.30 breakfast, usually porridge or muesli
9.45 nap - this can last anywhere between 1-2 hours and she gets a small snack on waking
12noon - lunch
2pm 7oz bottle (half formula, half cows milk)
and a small snack
2.30 nap, usually an hour
6pm bath and story time
6.30 7oz bottle of formula and in bed by 7
7.30 up, changed etc
8 breakfast (cereal and cup of milk)
Up, changed, play
12 lunch with water
4 snack and water
5.30 dinner with cup of milk
7 bed, sleeping from 7.30ish
Got rid of formula a few days before first birthday and got rid of bottles a few days after. This whole routine has stayed the same for months now (almost 16 months). I get the feeling we're nearing a change though, to switch to one nap in the middle of the day.
7.15am - Up and play
8.00am - Breakfast
9.30am - Nap
10.30am - Up and play

4.15pm - Dinner
6.00pm - Bath
6.30pm - 7oz bottle and bed
On a good day (i.e when not teething/ full of cold, so pretty much never at the moment)

12pm lunch - possibly last nights leftovers from our evening meal or a sandwich or tomato pasta. Will have a sippy cup of water/juice
1.30 - 3pm nap time
3.30pm if whingey a bottle of cows milk.
5pm supper. Same sort of stuff as lunch, or if nothing 'fresh' available frozen chips and fish fingers with peas and ketchup.
6pm bath time
6.30 in the night garden or a picture book.
Sleeps a variable amount during the night. Recently seems to be coming into our bed earlier and earlier in the morning which is Not Good.
Oops forgot the 6.30pm bottle of cows milk and the fact that there's a sippy cup of water to help herself to throughout the day.
All you lucky people with napping babies!

Cuddle for 15mins due to wake up trauma (I feel his pain)
Wrestle into nappy and clothes
Throw a handful of dry Cheerios/some toast and butter onto high chair tray while he watches Teletubbies (he won't eat much in the mornings)
Nursery drop off at 7
Nursery feeds him Oatibix at about 8
Play, play, play. Be cute all day for nursery nurses
Sleep 11-1:30 on a good day
Eat a healthy lunch
Play, play, play
Cry at 4pm pickup because the nurses won't let him rub his sippycup in a puddle
Moan all the way home
Refuse to eat healthy dinner
Eat mummy's dinner

Wine (for me, not baby )
Weekends we are summoned out of bed at around 7am to wave at the cars outside, then we have some toast, play for a while, maybe a snack at some point if he wants one. Then sleep at around 11, lunch, play, then we begin the usual bedtime routine.
He usually only has one bottle of cow's milk per day.
*0930 Porridge and fruit with cup of water
*1300 Lunch with water
*1630 Snack or 6oz milk
*1830 Dinner and cup of water
*1930 8oz milk and story in bed
We don’t really have routine at all!
Normally up about 7 (although can be earlier) when he has a bottle
He normally has 4 smaller meals so breakfast about 8, lunch 11.30, tea / snack at 4 and then some dinner at 6.
He has a bottle at bedtime.
Has between 1 and 3 naps a day just depends how tired he is and what we are doing.
