lol!! I have a pretty strict routine! However if I didnt have one then Tobey gets irritable I think he forces it more than me... ours is:

Between 8-10 am Wake up time, breakfast and milk

Nap for 1 hour

Between 12-2 Lunch!

3-4 Nap Time

Between 4.30-5.30 Dinner

6pm Bath

6.30 Warm bottle

7pm Bed!

With this routine I find that when I put him in his cot he will sleep. We play a lot together (my attempt to wear him out!! lol).
Where hes used to it now I can let him sleep downstairs during the day and he wont wake, even if Im making a lot of noise. I think it helps that he has noise during the day cos he sleeps so well at night! We have the odd day whe he wakes up early and if we pop out to a friends in the evening and are out past 7pm he sleeps in longer which means mummy gets a lie in!! lol

Seph is a very routined baby too, I think a lot of babies are creatures of habbit.

To start with I fed Seph every 3 hours when he was small, which I think was one of the main reasons he slept through the night so early, as he got older I would watch him for signs of sleepiness and would have to get him to bed at just the right second or he wouldn't sleep, by doing that I noticed that he had a pattern of wanting to sleep every hour and a half, as he got bigger this lengthened to every 2 hours, then every 2.5 hours and finally 3, now I have put a more rigid day time routine in so that our day doesn't all depend on what time he wakes up. He has 2.5 hours in the day (He's a sleepy boy) he has half hour at 9.30, and hour and a half at 1 and then half hour at 5, if his night time sleep changes I will change his day time, probably drop his afternoon nap. He has breakfast and milk when he wakes normally around 7.30, a snack after his nap at 10, lunch with a bottle at 12, milk about 4, dinner about 7 and a bottle with bed at 8.

How many oz does Seph take during the day? Tobey take 3x 9oz bottles and drinks water juice throughout the day. I think he gets bored of milk cos at times he refuses but I dont know if its enough!!

I think from 7 months they are supposed to have between 18 and 21oz so I'd say that's more than enough. Seph has 8oz in the morning, 4 with lunch and 8 before bed plus the milk added to food and his little yogurts.

I wish Id had this before. I had to work it out for myself and it can be quite difficult to know what to do and when, especially with your first. I was forever phoning my mum making sure I was doing things right!! lol

I bought Gina Ford's contended little baby, and although a lot of people don't like it, and the routines didn't suit us at all, it taught me so much about what to do with him through the day (IE Feeding times/sleeps etc) And eventually I just adapted her routines to suit us, and I feel like we have a great routine. Apparently a good one is the Baby Whisperer, MIL bought this for me, but I was already reading GF and just disregarded it! LOL

Iv seen a few baby whisperer programmes and they have some good advice. Another is mums the word on discovery home and health (i think). That one Iv watch quite a few times. Its mums helping other mums and is full of helpful facts and ideas.
