I am cleaning off my computer and found this schedule I made for my mom when she babysat Hannah in March. It was too good not to share.
4:30a – Hannah awakes with a smile and a renewed sense of purpose ready to greet the day. She practices some yoga and prepares for another busy day.
5:00a – Mom collects her, changes her diaper, asks if she had a good sleep, and then goes into the living room so everyone can attempt to go back to sleep while she eats breakfast number one.
7:00a – Hannah hangs out in her office (Mom and Dad’s bed) playing while everyone else gets ready. No one gets ahead by sleeping in.
8:30a – Breakfast time! Hannah eats a pouch of food from the cabinet to the left of the sink.
9:00a – Time for Sesame Street! It’s on HBO Max. She can’t get to the corner office if she can’t count cookies. She also takes a bottle. She typically falls asleep. It could be a 10 minutes or 2 hours.
11:30a – Lunch time!
Noon – Play time! Hannah sits on the floor in her downstairs office (ball pit), thinking seat (bouncer), or on the foam mat. This is where she does her best thinking.
1:00p – A future CEO needs her beauty rest. Bottle and nap time. Again, either 10 minutes or 2 hours.
3:00p – Playtime! It’s time to watch some Bluey (on Disney +) so Hannah can learn to be a nice person while her way to greatness.
5:00p – Dinner with the fam.
6:00p – No stinky babies here! Bath time and snuggles. Then into the crib to focus on how to dominate the world tomorrow.
- Sleepy tell – fussy, covering eyes (part of a bottle will knock her out)
- Seat downstairs – don’t leave her alone, she rolls around in it.
- Bottles in drying rack, 6oz of water + 3 scoops of formula
- Extra bibs/spit rags in 3rd drawer of changing table
- General schedule – Sleep, play 2 hours, eat … repeat
