(stats using WHO)
Miles wakes up between 7:30 and 8:30. Then he takes 1 nap a day. It’s mostly near 12:30. Sometimes it's a little later. He naps 1-2.5 hours daily. We start bedtime at 7:30 PM. He goes to sleep so well and even if he ever wakes up and cries for a second, he puts himself back to sleep.
Miles snacks in the morning upstairs while we are getting Ella ready or has breakfast in the car. He eats a bigger meal at some point before nap. He likes to eat right after nap. Then we get Ella and they snack in the car on the way home. They start dinner or snack immediately after getting home. The kids eat while I cook. Then they mostly don’t eat the actual dinner. He’s in his high chair most of the time we are eating. He has some dessert too. Then it’s almost bedtime. He has a yogurt or yogurt smoothie before going up to bed.
Start bedtime routine pretty close to 7:30. Routine is Benadryl, diaper change, put him in his scratch sleeves and sleep sack. Put on some ointments but most of the time I don't put on any. Then I read books to him. We read 7 or more every night (and before every nap.) He has some favorites. I leave one arm out of the scratch sleeves so he can turn pages and lift flaps. He takes a book to the crib with him. He always goes into the crib into the corner with his head on the pillow. I cover him with his 2 afghans and the fleece blanket. Then I turn on his night light elephant and he holds his book. He falls asleep within minutes. He sleeps all night. If I happen to hear him make noise in the night he goes back to sleep himself. He wakes up anywhere between 7:30 and 8:30 for the day. Get Ella ready for school, drop Ella off, and he has a snack in the car. Sometimes he falls asleep on the way home and other times he doesn't nap until 2.
12:30 nap routine starts - We transitioned from nursing to book reading. We read about 6 books before nap and he goes into his crib awake.
eat, play, hangout, get Ella, eat, play
