Note: I am not getting active in my blog again. I just wanted a place to keep Haydon’s schedules so that I could come back and reference them. I created a schedule tab at the top of the blog so that I, or anyone, could easily reference the schedules that I have kept with my children. I find myself looking at them frequently as Haydon has been an infant. Haydon is in the mist of making that gradual change towards one nap right now, hence why I am revisiting the schedules of my children.
2 Months/10 weeks
Haydon has silent reflux. We just put him on Axid about 1.5 weeks ago. Prior to medication, he did not really have a schedule. The medication has helped to get him on a schedule, thankfully!! His naps are still a work in progress. He typically wakes up 45 mintues into his naps (80% of the time) and cries for about 10-20 minutes before he finally goes back to sleep to finish out the nap. But I see this as huge progress because prior to the medication I had a very hard time getting him to to go back to sleep after 45 minutes of sleep.
8:40- 10:30 Nap
7:30 Bottle of pumped milk, Followed by bedtime
1 MOTN Feeding around 5am (stopped at 12 weeks)
8:50-10:30 Nap (WT length changed @15 weeks so naps starts at 9am now)
7:45 Bottle (6-7oz), Followed by Bedtime between 8/8:15pm
***Around 15 weeks, his WT length started to increase and his schedule is kind of wonky right now, but it was very solid before 15 weeks.
6:30 Solids (did not add solids until he was 4.5 months old)
7:30 8.5oz Bottle (BM), followed by bed***This was a rough month. He stopped STTN for about 3 weeks due to a mega growth spurt. When I started to feed solids at bedtime, he finally started to STTN again. For about 1.5 weeks he was waking up early out of naps hungry so our schedule during the day was off for about 1.5 weeks due to the growth spurt and I was feeding more often. It was a wonder week season, wonder week 19, so I would say that between 16-19 weeks things were just not prefect, but not horrible.***
@ 5.5 Months- Sleeps un-swaddled at night, but still swaddled for naps.
11:00 Nurse & Solids (2-3 tbsp)
5:00-5:45/6:00 Cat Nap
6:00 Nurse & Solids (4-5 tbsp)
8:00 8.5oz Bottle pumped breastmilk, followed by bed(I pump at 8 & 10pm to keep supply)
Haydon is still on Axid for reflux twice a day. Still swaddled for naps but unswaddled at night.
9-10:30 nap (I need to wake him so he’ll take a 2 hour afternoon nap)
11:00 nurse, solids
6:00 nurse, solids
8:00 bottle (6-8oz), followed by bed
Usually asleep by 8:30
I pump at 10pm and use that milk for his bedtime bottle.7 Months:
7 months was not-so-fun
He got his first two teeth, reflux flared, eczema flared, wonky schedule due to inconsistent catnap.
Here is how the schedule sort of rolled out this month…
6:30ish wake up
7:00 nurse, solids
11:00 nurse, solids
1:30-3/3:30 nap (wakes closer to 3)
3/3:30 nurse, solids
6:00 nurse, finger foods
7:30 nurse, followed by bed but does not fall asleep until close to 8:30If he does not catnap his afternoon schedule looks like this instead:
5:30/6 nurse, finger foods
7:00 nurse,followed by bed
But if he goes to bed at 7:00pm he wakes up earlier at 6am and it really messes up the start to the day.He misses a morning nap due to church on Sunday. He sometimes catnap in the church nursery, but not always. Then on Tuesday and Thursday I have to drop-off (9:15am) and pick-up my older kids at preschool (1:00), which has really messes with the start of the morning nap. All in all, this month has been rough 8 Months
