I can't believe she is actually 6 months old now! Wow!
I started weaning Alice at 4 and a half months old and have steadily been increasing the amount of food she has each day. So this is Alice's routine as it stands!
6am: Wake up and play in cot
6.30-6.45: Nappy change and 6oz of milk. Then put on mat to play while I have breakfast.
7.30: Porridge and a little bit of fruit.
8.15: Sleep time again!
9.30: Wake up. Nappy change. Play time.
10am: I get Alice washed and dressed and ready for the day!
10.40: A little bit of fruit to keep her happy till lunch
11.00- 11.30: Lunch. Half a jar of veg or chicken and veg and half a jar of fruit or a rusk in milk.
12.00- Nap time!
12.45: Wake up and drink 5-6oz of milk
1.30: We go out and about for a walk.
2.30: Sometimes Alice needs another little nap, sometimes she is ok. If she is ok, I let her sit in her chair and watch Peppa Pig.
3.00: Yoghurt time! Offer water from a beaker. Then it's play time.
4.00: If Alice didn't nap at 2, then she definitely needs to now!
5.00: Diner. Half a jar of savoury, half a jar of sweet or a rusk in milk.
5.45: Run bath and let Alice kick on her mat for a bit.
6.30: After she is dressed and wrapped up in her sleeping bag I give her 5oz of milk.
7.00: Bed time!
Alice now sleeps right through and doesn't need a night feed anymore! Sometimes she wakes up early, like at 5am. if she dies this and won't go back to sleep, I always assume she needs food and give it to her, even if it throws her a little off routine. At the end of the day, she knows what she needs more than I do!
