Our Routine/Nursing

We’ve gotten into a pretty great routine and I’ve had a few people ask me about it! So here we go (plus some cute picture of G and I that I love – thanks Randy!)

Some days of this routine are different and we do what G needs and wants, but this is pretty standard. Sometimes the feedings are off by 15 minutes or so but usually we stick pretty close to this!

5:30 – I wake up and work until Graham wakes up.
7:00 – Graham wakes up and eats
7:20 – We get Graham dressed, read stories, make the bed, and play.
8:00 – We start getting Graham ready for a nap
8:15 – 9:45 (ish) Graham naps. While G naps I work, get ready, and eat breakfast (sometimes we go for a walk just depending on how much work I have.)
10:00 – Feeding.
10:00 – 11:20 Play
11:20 – 1:00 Graham naps. While he naps I work, make lunch, and sometimes take a nap if I’ve had a rough night (very rarely do I nap anymore.)
1:00 – Feeding
1:00 – 2:00 Play
2:00 – 4:00 Graham naps. While he naps I work, and often Randy gets home so he and I will chat, work on a project, etc.
4:00 – Feeding
4:00 – 4:45 Play
4:45 – Graham and I have some cuddle time and he starts to fall asleep
4:45 – 6:00 (ISH) Graham takes a catnap at this time, sometimes it’s short and sometimes it’s long. When he wakes up we just play until he seems a little hungry.
6:30 (ISH) I feed Graham a 2 ounce bottle.
6:30 – 7:45 – We play, make and eat dinner, give Graham a bath, and then start getting ready for bed.
7:45 – Last feeding of the day (usually another 2 ounce bottle as it’s part of a cluster feed from 6:00)
G goes to bed between 7:30 and 8:00.
10:00 – Dream feed and right back to bed.

Graham doesn’t eat through the night, if he wakes up at night it’s just to get his binky replaced or something like that!

We’ve been so lucky with nursing—it’s come super easy for G and I and we’ve been really great! He’s also an angel and takes a bottle so at least once a day I pump and get him a bottle so we always have one pumped in the fridge, whenever we need it. It’s also nice because I don’t have to nurse if we go out, I can bring a bottle if I’m not sure where I could nurse. G is also not great at nursing with a cover so having a bottle option is such a relief!
