Let’s Chat Schedules

Today I want to chat schedules. SO many moms ask me what a good schedule would look like. Today, I share a sample schedule for a 4 month old and 7 month old.

What does a 4 month old sleep/feed schedule look like? 

Here is a sample:
Morning 7:00am, feed
Nap 1, 8:30am, feed after nap
Nap 2, 12:30pm feed after nap
Nap 3, 4:30pm, feed after nap
Bedtime 7:00pm, feed at the beginning of bedtime routine
1 night feed may still be in the schedule

✅Wake time for a 4 month old is approx 1.5-2 hours
✅Naps should last 1-2 hours
✅ Breastfeeding and bottles should happen after nap time 

What does a 7 month old sleep/feed schedule look like? 

Here is a sample:
Morning 6:30am, feed
Nap 1- 9:30am, feed after nap
Nap 2-2:30pm feed after nap
Bedtime 7:00pm, feed at the beginning of bedtime routine 

Feed means bottle or nursing, many parents feed solids leading up to sleep time 

✅Wake time for a 7 month old is approx 3-3.5 hours
✅Naps should last 1-2 hours
✅Breastfeeding and bottles should happen after nap time
