So I thought I would write down what Ella's new schedule is since she is having more and more awake time. A few weeks back I decided it was high time she had a schedule. Everyday was different and it was driving me crazy. So I did a little quick read through of my Baby Wise book and realized I had forgotten one of the main points of the book....having a consistent wake up time in the morning. Plus the fact that it's my responsibility to decide when naps start and when they end. So I got up the next morning at 6:30 and got myself all showered and ready and then I got Ella up at 7:30 and nursed and changed her and then got the boys up at 8. The past few days I've moved that back to getting her up and the boys at 8am because life's been a little crazy around here. Ella's schedule during the day is awake for 1 1/2 - 2 hours and then asleep for 1 1/2 - 2 hours. She takes 3 naps during the day and goes to bed at 8pm. It's been so nice having her be more consistent and it usually works out where she is sleeping or just finished nursing when I need to get food on the table.
