I am not real happy with Daylight Savings..

Has it totally thrown off your little ones schedules or what?!

Ava usually wakes up around 7:30, has 2 decent naps or 1 really good nap during the day and is in bed between 8:30 and 9:30.


She is up at 6am.

Not napping well AT ALL.

Ready to go to sleep at 6:30pm.

Wakes up an hour later.

Plays for 2 hours.

Then is asleep for the night.


I have had her on some what of a schedule for a while now but was attempting a new one.

It was going well for the most part, until now!

Here is the schedule I would hope to have her on again real soon...

7:30am- Wake up, Bottle
8:30am-Breakfast Jar
8:45am-10:30am-Play time
11:00am-1 or 1:30ish --NAP
2:00pm-Lunch Jars
3:30-4:30-Playtime outside/take a walk...etc
5:30-6:30-Mommy and Ava time
6:30-Dinner jars
8:30pm-9:30pm-Story time, rock her, bed

Now, keep in mind that I also have Chloe from about 7:30ish in the morning until 5:30 or so in the evening.

I also take Amber to work at 9:30am and pick her up at 7:30pm.

Otherwise, I'd love for Ava to take an early morning nap and an afternoon nap like she was doing but I find that a little hard to do.

I am *hoping* that we can get back on this schedule (or even some what close would be nice) soon.

Emma goes to bed between 7.30 and 8 and wakes up around 6.30 / 7am Well, the day of and day after daylight savings, she woke up at 5. Not good! She's back to normal now, but those 5am days were not fun!

I am sure they weren't!!

I wish I could have Ava in bed by 7:30. I may try to. I have gone through a couple different schedules trying to find one that works for her and I both. I haven't decided which one I like better.

I watch Chloe during the week and there has been quite a few times lately that I have had her until almost 7:30. So I usually dont get bath time and all that good stuff done until she is gone.

After the Thanksgiving holidays are over I may try to revise the schedule again. I know every baby is different so what works for one doesn't always work for the other but I still am not completely satisfied. I have so much going on that I have to plan around as well. (like taking my sis to work and picking her up..etc)

I think the schedule I have now is working pretty good for the most part.. although we have slacked a bit this week..LOL
