5 month old schedule
Below is the most average schedule for the month.
8:00 a.m. - 8:30 a.m. Feed
9:15 a.m. - 9:45 a.m. Put down for nap
11:15 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. Feed
12:45 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. Put down for nap
2:15 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. Feed
3:45 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. Put down for nap
5:30 p.m. - 5:45 p.m. Feed
7:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. Put down for nap
8:30 p.m. - 8:45 p.m. Feed
9:00 p.m. - 9:15 p.m. Bedtime
Eating: 5 feedings in 24 hours.
Number of Naps: 4
Duration of Naps: The first 3 are anywhere from 1.5-2 hours. The 4th nap is only 45 minutes to an hour. If she's still sleeping at an hour, we wake her.
Length of Waketime: The 1st waketime is close to an hour and 15-20 minutes. The next 2 waketimes are 1.5 hours. The waketime before the last (4th) nap is closer to an hour and 45 minutes or 2 hours.
Hours of Sleep at Night: 10.5-11 hours of sleep.
-Soon after she turned 4 months, we cut down to 5 feedings. 6 feedings had just turned into to many for her, almost causing her to "snack feed" and not take full bottles.
-A lot of the time, she wakes or stirs at the 45 minute intruder during naps. I'd say 95% of the time, she goes back to sleep.
-Last month, she was swaddled with her arms completely out. And as of 5 months, we have switched her over to the sleep sack. She kept getting her body out of the swaddle so it was time to make a change.
-A few days after turning 5 months, she started eating rice cereal once a day. She had a few mornings of early waking (anywhere from 6:30-7:30) and some bad naps, so I took that as my cue to start.
