I was reading one of Stacie's posts over at Never Clever and decided maybe it's time to try to get Skyler on something resembling a schedule. Especially since his has been so messed up the last few days and it's making me crazy. I'm going to try (crosses fingers) feeding him first thing in the morning and then leaving him home with his daddy, feeding him on my lunch break, and then feeding him after work, and throughout the night. The plan should go alright so long as he is eating solids. Which he should be by now, but is still trying to get the hang of.

C wants him to sleep in his crib now instead of with us. Which will make things a bit harder on me. But if Sky can sleep through the night (fingers crossed again) then maybe it won't be so bad. I'm going to take this whole schedule thing slow and not rush into things. For the first while I'll probably only leave him with daddy in the afternoons or something. And we're working on the eating cereal thing. He's still sort of pushing most of it out with his tongue, but he's getting better, and I'm hoping if we keep trying he'll figure it out.

Anyway that's all I have time to write right now. Hope you all are well.

Some babies (not all, of course) really seem happy with the predictability that comes with being on a schedule. Good luck!

For Laney and I, we had to keep trying different things until one just "stuck". I started her on a schedule around the same age that Sky is. She's always had a feeding schedule, but never really much of a sleeping schedule.

But, as you know, when they start sleeping less during the day, a sleep schedule becomes a must.

Good luck!

My life was always too crazy to really keep a schedule well. I love the idea, but if you never keep one yourself it's kind of hard to put your kids on one.
