Mommastuff Question: Week 2
Q: Do you have routines for your kids? Care to share? Does it really help?
Routines for eating, sleeping and getting ready is vital for the development of any child. They will learn to anticipate what is going to happen next thus would not fuss as much. I’ve read that when a child understands what is happening and why, he will feel safe. Read more here.
Little Ozzy’s Daily Routine
- He wakes up at 6 am; goes out to look around with his yaya while daddy & I eat our breakfast.
- Eats his breakfast at 7 am while watching his favorite Brainy Baby Videos.
- 8am we take a bath; relax and read a book before I go up to work.
- Drinks his milk at 930am and naps at 10am ..wakes up at noon.
- 1-2pm we stay in the room, cuddle, read books, watch videos.
- 330pm he takes a nap again and wakes up at 5.
- 5-6pm he goes out and go around the neighborhood.
- 7pm dinner time.
- 8pm bath time .
- 9pm lights out.
Lately though, around 1 week already, he is more and more difficult to put down to sleep in the afternoons! There was an incident where I got fed up because of all the fussing that I left him with his yaya even though he was crying asking for me.
I was thinking I’d change up his routine; he’s already turning 2 this July and therefore he is more active! He can scratch the morning nap and sleep around 2pm and wake up at 5pm. I think that would be a much better option than forcing him to nap at 330 and he ends up crying all the time because he doesn’t want to! Right?
Thanks Nice, I had fun doing this. Join Mommastuff Questions of the week here.
