Well, I did have Gator at that age on a schedule (Cha Cha was sort of on this schedule though he coslept from day1, so nights and early mornings were feed on demand), HOWEVER, I was very relaxed about it. For example, if they were hungry, i"d feed them and not be strict about "sticking to the schedule." But I agree that having a "rhythm" to your day can be so helpful. and I remember that at 9weeks, the 3 hour feeding schedule seemed to work well for Gator.
6am bf (breast feed)
6:30am down for nap
9am bf and then burp and playtime
noon bf and then burp and playtime
3pm bf, burp, and playtime
6pm bf, burp, playtime
9pm bf and burp immediattly put to bed
midnight bf--at around 12 weeks I didn't wake the baby to bf if he didn't wake himself and start rooting to bf. I just let him sleep through this.
3am bf---between 7 and 9th week I didn't wake the baby to bf if he didn't wake himself and start rooting. I'd just let him sleep on.
i'm looking at the schedule I put together and it appears that at week 16 (4mo) this really started to change. the nap at 6:45am started to disappear into a longer single morning nap. Also, the afternoon naps morphed into just 2 with more playtime inbetween and bedtime around 8pm or 8:30pm.
