I asked about nap schedules on twitter and I think I need more than 140 characters to expalin. Chase is 2 months old.
He was waking up around 6 or 7 and then taking an early morning nap around 7:30 or 8:30. This nap was anywhere from 50 mins to 120 mins.
Then he would wake up and eat and I would put him back down for a late morning nap after an hour and a half or so. This was anywhere from 80 to 120 mins.
Back up again to eat, back down again after 90 mins. Afternoon nap 40-120 mins.
Up again, eat, down after 90 mins. Early evening nap ranged from 30-65 mins.
One last time he would get up, eat, play and go back down after 90 mins. His late evening nap lasted 35-120 mins.
I asked the pediatrician today about the 30-40 min naps, if those are ok. She said no. Her point, which is valid, is that kids at daycares do get on schedules. That kids at home their mom might go and get them at every little noise they make. I don't think I'm one of those moms. My kid does sleep in his own room at night for 3-5 hour stretches. My kid is also pretty loud and I am going to try to get him on a schedule.
This is where I need your help, advice, and wisdom. If you had a 2 month old on a schedule at home or daycare what was it?
I think this is the schedule I want to try:
7am wake up, eat, play
11am wake up, eat, play
3pm wake up, eat, play
7pm wake up, eat, play
So that is 4 2.5 hour long naps. Is that good and normal???
