Ralph’s 14 month old schedule

It is hard to believe that this is my 4th schedule update for baby Ralph. I know I said his last schedule update was my favorite because he was awake more but this schedule is by far the best. Not only is he up so much more, we have found that he is so happy & content when we keep him on this schedule. For those of you who have just started following along, you can read about his first schedule (0 – 5 1/2 months) here, his second schedule (5 1/2 – 7 1/2 months) here, his third schedule (7 1/2 – 12 months) here and below for his latest schedule that we have been using since about 12 months! Please note that baby Ralph is now going to school on Monday’s and Wednesday’s for a few hours, so I have split up his schedule into two different sections. If your baby only requires 1 nap, then the M/W schedule might work best for you!

  • 9:30 – 11:30 pm: some days Ralph doesn’t feel like napping but either way that baby is in his crib from 9:30-11:30. We put a couple of books in his crib for him to read so during this time he reads, relaxes, maybe snoozes for 30 minutes but most importantly learns to have alone time.

Please know that this is what works for our baby but I do have to say that my friends that keep their kids on a schedule all have happy babies and the mothers are just as happy (it’s nice to be able to plan your day and know when you can shower/get other things done). For us a schedule is a win but at the end of the day all that matters is what works for your baby and family!!!!

Ralph’s previous schedules: 0 – 5 1/2 months, 5 1/2 – 7 1/2 months, 7 1/2 – 12 months
