I'm just starting to get a routine established for DD. We've had a bedtime routine for ages, of course, but the rest of our day has always been unscheduled and maybe a little bit boring. A couple of recent developments have made a routine more desirable to me. First, she's down to one nap and that normally happens around 1pm. Second, she's walking now and loves to see other kids. So, what I try to do is something like this:
7:30 DD wakes up and then nurses shortly after that
8 or 8:30 breakfast
after breakfast - play in the living room for a little bit, change into daytime clothes, then ideally go to the park or playgroup or some other activity where she sees other kids (she'll have a snack around 10 or 10:30)
12:00 lunch then play for a few minutes after lunch
1:00 nap (which will last 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours)
we'll go outside after her nap. I sometimes take her for a walk in the stroller and let her have her snack while we're strolling. (The strolling is pretty much for my benefit, but she puts up with it for a little while.) Then we'll come home and play in the front yard and visit with our neighbors.
5:15 - 5:30 dinner starts
she generally has about 15-30 minutes after dinner to play with Daddy inside or outside
6:15 - 6:30 bath starts the bedtime routine and she's in bed by 7pm
I've been trying to take her to the park in the mornings when I can b/c it's not as crowded or hot. She loves the slide and really likes just walking around and picking stuff up. I think the higher activity periods also help her sleep better. HTH!
