on schedules and routines...

>> Wednesday, November 11, 2009

So far we know the Little Man likes a routine, since he responded well to me having one even before he was born. For the first couple weeks I've just monitored his natural rhythms.

Now I'm basing a parent-directed routine on those rhythms, and hoping I can stick to it. It's posted on the frig, loaded into my iPhone's daily calendar and everything. Of course that doesn't mean we won't ever deviate, but it gives us a general guideline.

Most of all, I want to make sure that he gets enough feedings a day, with enough time between eating for adequate waketime and naptime. And that he gets a chance to naturally regulate his metabolism by having a daily rhythm where things happen generally at the same time every day.

Yup, it's extra work right now, but I think it'll pay off. Will have to let you know in a few weeks on that!

It TOTALLY pays off! My babies were so happy, waking up happy even. I was able to get out of the house once in awhile and do things knowing that they would sleep for their naptime for a couple of hours. Keep it up! It DOES pay off!

You sound like a Babywise mommy! It will payoff, I promise!
