Getting Your Baby on a Schedule

Your baby’s cues for feeding and sleeping are still your best guide to meeting his needs. But by this time, you may be able to start getting his routine more in line with the rest of your family’s schedule.

Here’s how you can help him adjust:

  • In the morning, wake him and start his day when you are ready.
  • In the evening, rouse him just enough to feed him once more before you go to sleep.
  • During the day, wake him if he naps for more than 3 hours. Keep it light during the day and dark at night.
