Baby is getting bigger and bigger by the day! He can now crawl and is attempting to stand. He can go from laying to sitting position. He can also sit for long periods of time. He is more independent now and can keep himself occupied for 20 – 30 minutes without needing attention. Each month his schedule changes a bit but not drastically. This is my current suggested schedule for a 7 month old child. These times are not always specific. Each day is different so the time shifts a bit with each day. However the routine stays the same.
8:00 – Wake and Breast milk or Formula
8:15 – Breakfast ( Baby Puree)
9:00 – Playtime
11:00 – Breast milk or Formula
11:30 – Morning nap
12:30 – Wake Breast milk or Formula
3:00 – Breast milk or Formula supplemented with puree (Lunch)
4:00 – Afternoon nap (30-45 minutes)
7:00 or 7:30 – Dinner (Baby Puree)
7:30 – Begin bedtime routine
8:00 – Breast milk or Formula and Bedtime (goal to be asleep at this time)
