If you have a baby and do the school run, what is your routine like?

DS2 is 2 weeks old. DP goes back to work tomorrow and I'm just trying to work out how I'm going to get everyone dressed, fed and out of the door and when DS2 grows up a bit, what a sleep routine will look like. Will he sleep on the way to school to drop off/pick up DS1. Or will it be at home?

I also have DD who is 2.2 who will also have to be factored in, but she's pretty flexible and just needs a quick nap after lunch.

I'm not a Gina Ford type, but I do like to have a bit of a (flexible) routine to work around.

Thanks in advance...

Both of mine found their own routine pretty quickly but dc2 was the fastest. She very quickly got used to doing the school run and would want a sleep once we were on the way home from school in the morning.

I'm sure you'll be fine smile

You will be fine. Baby will sleep on the way to/back from school. If DD2 settles quickly for nap between 12 and 2, you will make it. Mine is 18mo, she sometimes falls asleep on the way home after drop off and would not sleep after lunch but then on the way to pick up, I know she would sleep again. By 7/7.30pm no matter which scenario occured during the dat, she is fast asleep.

Thanks. Think I just need to see how it goes. Luckily he's a pretty efficient feeder so I don't need to factor in epic hour long feeds.
