    Default Baby Schedule

    Well even though Carter is older than your babies . I have a question for the BTDT mommas how did you put your LO on a schedule? I have to go back to work March 4th and i was wondering how did any of you get your 2/ 3 month olds to bed

    I just let DD fall into her own schedule. It went great and so I didn't do any sort of true bedtime routine (in that I'd just feed her and put her down like any other time she slept) early on. Then she started teething at aroudn 4 months and we started having sleep issues so I had to give her some cues.

    I plan to do the same thing with DS as far as letting him figure out his own schedule, but I'm going to do more bedtime routine stuff early on (around 2-2.5 months). I want to keep it simple and similar to DDs for convenience sake, but I figure if nothing else I'll just get him dressed for bed (will do a bath first when he needs them on a more regular basis), change his diaper, feed him and read him a story or sing him a song, put him in bed with his seahorse that plays music or some sort of white noise.

    I think the biggest thing with bedtime routines/schedules in general is being consistent and knowing that it can take them a few days/weeks to get the hang of it.

    I am with Mia. We did not try to give DS a schedule until he was 4.5 months old. He actually did not respond at all to sleep training - just pissed him off and we all got no sleep. He is a stubborn kid. Around 6 months we tried again and were able to make some minor changes to his schedule to make it work for us...

    I, too, did not put any of my older ones on a schedule...I let them fall into their own schedule. When Reagan is about 2 months, I plan on doing the same as Mia. Give her a bath, change her, feed her, read a story with all four kids, and then lay her down w/her noise machine (we use the heartbeat sound right now to try to get her to sleep on her own in her crib). Hopefully Carter will fall into a routine for you, but otherwise, just make sure you're consistant w/what you do every night. He'll eventually get the hang of it and know that that is his bedtime routine!

    That's tough dealing with GERD. Is he on any sort of medication I ease the discomfort or is there not much they can donfornthat?
