Babywise sample schedules for 0-12 month olds. Over 100 baby sleep schedules and routines to help your baby eat well, take great naps, and sleep through the night.

Mom and baby

You have read On Becoming Babywise and are ready to get a great schedule. You want a sleep routine and schedule and to get consistent days.

You are probably wondering what a sample Babywise schedule might look like for the age of your baby. In this post, I have compiled sample Babywise schedules readers have shared over the years.

Knowing what schedules other babies have used can be very helpful when trying to decide what is normal and what is not normal for your baby.

Notice that there are many variances in these schedules. All babies are different and have different sleep needs. To use this post, scroll to find the age of your baby.

Babywise 1 Month Old Schedule


1 Month Old

The Parkers said…
1-mo old boy:

6:00am Bottle
6:50 Nap
9:00 Bottle
9:50 Nap
12:00pm Bottle
1:00 Nap
3:00 Bottle
4:00 Nap
6:00 Bottle
6:30 Bath / Bedtime routine
7:00 Bed
10:00 Bottle
2:00 Bottle

Bottles are all BM. Amount varies from 3 – 6 oz per feeding.

Initially, I was concerned by the variability in how much he eats per feeding, but then I realized that this could be happening if I were nursing him (as I did with my first son) and I’d never know that was the case.

Naptimes are approximate — I am still working on trying to figure out the optimal waketime for him for each nap.

6 weeks – 4 months

We have used this schedule from 6 weeks til now at 4 months. It’s working so we are not changing it! Although we did switch the 10 o clock feed to the after bath feed around 12 weeks.


7:00 – 7:30am wake time, Feed (5 ounces) & dressed for day care (I try to let her wake herself up but won’t let her sleep past 7:30).
7:30-7:45 (if she got up early optional independent play while I finish getting ready)
8:05 arrive at day care and have play time
9:00 – 10:00 nap
10:00 feed (7 ounces) followed by play time
11:30 – 1:00 nap
1:00 feed (7 ounces) followed by play time
3:00 – 4:00 nap
4:00 feed (7 ounces) followed by playtime

Amy said…
10 week old boy

We are on a 3 hour or 3 hour 15 min schedule. The day starts somewhere between 7:30 or 8 am and he goes down to sleep around 9 pm.

We watch for signs of tiredness and put him down for naps when we see that. Some days he can stay awake longer and some days he seems more sleepy. We just try to read him.

So far it’s working out wonderfully. Since week 5 he has been sleeping 8-10 hours a night straight through til morning. I know we’re blessed! 🙂 This is a typical day…

~wake up between 7:30 and 8 – 5oz bottle
plays or swings for about 15 minutes
~between 8:30 and 9 – nap
~wakes up around 10:30, 10:45- 5 oz bottle
plays in play pen, tummy time, we read a book…
~noon – nap
~wakes up around 1:30, at 2:00- 5 oz bottle
swings, plays in play pen
~3:00 – nap
~wakes up between 4 and 4:30
plays with Daddy
~5:30- 5 oz bottle
around 7 he takes a 30 or 45 min catnap in his swing or sometimes in his crib
we give him a bath every other day and massage
~8:45 last bottle- 5 oz
in bed by 9:15

12 week old girl (but same schedule since 9 weeks or so)

I also work very early, so I have to leave the house by 6:30 am and get home at 5. So I always want to make sure she starts the day with a breastfeeding before getting breastmilk from a bottle all day.

5:30 wake
6-6:15 independent playtime while I get ready for work
6:15 nap
8:30 feed
9:00-9:30 play time with daddy and tummy time
9:30 nap
11:00 feed
12:15 nap
2:00 feed
3:15 nap (she has a very hard time with this nap)
4:45 or 5:00 feed
6:00 nap (she has a hard time with this nap sometimes)
8:00 feed
8:30-9:00 bed, depending on cues

My husband pointed out that I should mention we don’t dreamfeed. I tried it, and she actually wouldn’t sleep through the night on nights that I did one. It started because I was so tired I skipped the dreamfeed for a couple of nights and she slept through. Then I picked it back up and she woke at 3:30. Perhaps because of gas? Either way, she currently doesn’t eat between 8 and 5:30

Vanessa said…
10 week old TWINS

I have them on the same schedule. Sometimes one isn’t as hungry or tired yet, but whoever is “dominating” wins, and they both get the bottle or bed time. Otherwise, I don’t think I could survive!

7am 3&4oz bottles
wake time getting ready, but no play time
drop off at day care
8am nap
10am 3&4 oz bottles, play time
11am nap on and off (my boy doesn’t nap well, girl naps solidly)
1pm 3&4 oz bottles, play time
2pm nap on and off
4pm 3&4 oz bottles, play time
5pm nap on and off
6:30pm family dinner (usually the babies scream the entire time while we eat since they wake from their naps early)
7:00pm 3&4oz bottles
cuddle time watching TV and reading books with babies and our 3yo
7:30 baths for each baby
8:00pm lay down for bed
10:00pm dream feed

approximately 4am middle of the night feeding. Going to start reducing ounces and try to drop this feeding soon.

God bless you all for sharing!

And Val if i am missing something, or doing something wrong please feel free to give me some suggestions so i can achieve the 10-12 hours of sleep, thank you!!

Angie said…
10 – 13 week old boy

7:30am – 8am – Feed
wake time usually consists of baby in bouncy chair watching mom have her coffee.
9:30am – Nap
11am – Feed
wake time consists of some sort of exercise for mom, either stroller ride or front carrier hike.
12:30pm – Nap
2pm – Feed
wake time: bath then errands.
3:30pm – Nap
5pm – Feed
Wake time: bouncy chair or playpen time. Mom makes dinner.
7pm – Nap or awake usually put in swing because tends to be fussy at this time.
7:45-8:15pm – Last Feed
Have not done dreamfeeds as we are usually in bed early and up early so found dreamfeeds would actually make me lose some of my sleep.
3-4am – Feed (when baby wakes up) straight back to bed. Still trying to drop this feed.

Babywise Schedules for 0-12 months

MSW said…
9 week old girl

Here is my current schedule for my 9 week old girl. (She was a premie so her adjusted age would be closer to 5 weeks.) She is a good sleeper and started STTN at 7 weeks. We never did a dream feed because she goes to bed later than most.

6am: wake and nurse and she goes right back down.
9am: wake and nurse and play time.
10:15: nap
12pm: wake and nurse and wake time.
1pm: nap
3pm: wake and nurse and independent play
4pm: nap
6pm: wake and nurse. She will sit in her bouncy seat while family eats and then we all go for a walk together. Sometimes she sleeps and other times she stays awake the whole time.
8pm: She is awake by this time if she even took a nap after 6. We start our bedtime routine of bath and 4 oz bottle of either formula or pumped BM.
9pm: Bed! She sleeps through until 6am.

I always pump both side around 11:00 before I go to bed to keep up my supply since she is STTN at such a young age! We also utilized CIO for about a week and now she is napping well throughout the day. It took work, but it is so worth it!

Ceejay said…
14 Week Old Boy

We just moved to this schedule about 4 days ago after weeks of battling the 45-minute intruder and thinking he needed less awake time.

I finally went with my gut that he was undertired and so allowed more awake time (almost 2 hours sometimes!), dropped the dreamfeed, and moved to a 3.5 hour schedule during the day.

It has worked like a charm so far–he sleeps 1.5-1.75 hours each nap, 10-11 hours at night, and is happy and alert during awake times! He also still averages 15-15.5 hours of sleep a day, so it seems like enough. And he is not overly sensitive about the exact amount of wake time. We just watch for yawns, stillness, or sometimes fussiness before putting him down.

7am Wake, nurse both sides. (Sometimes he wakes between 6 and 7 but goes back to sleep or lays quietly.)
Wake time–independent play in gym, some play with mom and dad.
8:45-9am Nap
10:30am Wake, nurse both sides.
Wake time – tummy time, reading, playing in gym, playing with mommy, etc.
12-12:15pm Nap
2pm Wake, nurse both sides
Wake time – playing with mom or dad, reading, more independent play, etc
3:45-4pm Nap
5:15-5:30pm Wake, nurse both sides
Wake time – Bath, playing, errands or a walk, hanging out with us while we eat dinner
7:30pm Nurse both sides
Into pjs, read a book, sing a lullaby, and into bed by 8pm.

No dreamfeed since 13 1/2 weeks. No MOTN feed since 8-9 weeks.

9:30pm Pump right before going to bed. I started doing this when he dropped the dreamfeed, since he’s still pretty young and I don’t want to compromise my supply. Not sure how long I’ll continue.

6:00-6:15: wake, take a bath
7:00-7:30: bedtime (I nurse right before I put her to bed)
10:30: Dreamfeed (About 4-5 oz of pumped breastmilk)

He was going so long at night I started to pump twice a day to make sure my supply didn’t drop.

I typically can freeze 6oz but it can range up to 12oz. He moved to a 4 hour schedule at 2 months.

4-6 month old girl

Typical flexible routine, it varies by 20 or 30 minutes sometimes

6:45 wake, eat (6 oz. breastmilk)
7:30 long nap every day
10:30 eat (6 oz. breastmilk)
11:45 nap some days
2:15 eat (6 oz. breastmilk)
3:45 nap some days
6:00 eat (nurse)
7:00 nap most days
8:30 bath and bedtime routine
9:00 eat (6 oz. breastmilk)
9:15 bed, sleeps through the night

I find that her nap routine is the least consistent since I work part-time and different family members keep her on those days.

Her bedtime, morning waketime, and feeding time is very consistent. I would like for her naptimes and activity times to be more consistent. After charting everything for several days as suggested by the Baby Whisperer, her naptimes really depend on who keeps her that day.

D&H said…
4-6 Months

Since 4 months (he will be 6 months this week) we have been working on transitioning to 3.5-hour schedule.

After a few days of the longer schedule, he wakes up early from naps and we end up doing the 3-hour schedule above, so for the last little while we’ve just done the longer schedule 2-3 days a week which allows me to decide which days rather than him.

Hopefully we’ll do this all the time soon!

6am Nurse, then some playtime
7:15 Nap
9:30 Nurse, tummy time, playtime
11:00 Nap
1:00pm Nurse, tummy time, playtime (or errands)
2:30 Nap
4:30 Nurse, play time, family time
6:00 (sometimes a little later) Nap
(Sometimes he doesn’t take the 4th nap, but most of the time he needs it.)

We dropped the dreamfeed 2 weeks ago and he’s slept through the night ever since (would love to have a morning waketime of 7-8am, but maybe in a few weeks?).


We’re also thinking about dropping the last nap to get him to sleep longer in the morning, but we haven’t quite figured that out without dropping a feeding.

4 Month Old Baby Girl

7/730 – wake, reflux meds, dressed for day, BF
830/9 – nap
1030/11 – wake & BF
1230/1 – nap
230/3 – wake & BF
430 – nap (sometimes)
5/530- BF (5 if she didn’t take a nap prior to, 530 if she did)
630 – reflux meds, bath and baby lotion massage (this starts our night-night routine)
7 – BF, read book after, if awake enough
730 – bedtime
10 – dreamfeed and STTN

Her naps are the most inconsitent right now because 1) 4 month sleep regression and 2) teething.

Her wake time typically lasts 1.5 hours though sometimes it’s more or less. I am a SAHM and watch her for her sleep cues.

There are times she will wake in the middle of a nap, chat/lightly fuss for a few minutes (sometimes as long as 15) then go back to sleep. I personally do not check on her unless she’s crying or the fussing is different than a “transition cry” because it makes it worse and she will not go back to sleep. If she doesn’t take her naps, I do my best to keep feeding times the same and fit in several cat naps (hopefully 6 – 30 min naps).

Bedtime is almost never later; she doesn’t make it later – she winds up screaming at us for even trying OR falls asleep 🙂 Also, I change up what activity she does during her wake time. She is a VERY particular baby and will not always go for the same exact wake time routine. As such I just switch up activities and/or toys to help keep her content.

Krystal said…
5 month old (girl)

She sleeps through the night, but her naps are very spotty. Her “normal” nap is 45 minutes long, but she usually has one longer nap (1.5 – 2 hours) each day, but not always at the same time.

If she wakes up before it’s time to eat, she plays for a bit.

7:00 – get up and nurse (she is often awake, but quiet, so I don’t know exactly when she wakes up)
8:15 – nap (varies in length)

D&H said…
4-6 months

Since 4 months (he will be 6 months this week) we have been working on transitioning to 3.5-hour schedule. After a few days of the longer schedule, he wakes up early from naps and we end up doing the 3-hour schedule above, so for the last little while we’ve just done the longer schedule 2-3 days a week which allows me to decide which days rather than him. Hopefully we’ll do this all the time soon!

6am Nurse, then some playtime
7:15 Nap
9:30 Nurse, tummy time, playtime
11:00 Nap
1:00pm Nurse, tummy time, playtime (or errands)
2:30 Nap
4:30 Nurse, play time, family time
6:00 (sometimes a little later) Nap
(Sometimes he doesn’t take the 4th nap, but most of the time he needs it.)
7:30 Nurse
Bedtime routine
Bed by 8:15

At nearly 6 months old, his waketimes are still 90 minutes and he still needs 4 naps. Most of the time his nighttime sleep is only 9 hours and I would like to move to 10 hours, but so far that hasn’t happened.

Austyn said…
6 month old boy

We have *just* transitioned from 5 meals/day to 4, dropping the early morning meal before I leave for work. Now I pump there instead. I sought Val’s advice a few months ago before my transition back to work, and she was spot on. That early morning “dreamfeed” starting affecting his naps a week before he turned 6 months. She’s a BW genius 😉

My sister nannies for us, so the activities vary, but this is the report I usually get when I call home while pumping. Naps and meals are very regular.

5:30 mom pumps
7:30-8 wake, play in crib if up before 8
8:00 Bottle (breast milk)
8:30 Mat time/tummy time/practice sitting up
9:00 Nap #1
12:00 Bottle (usually formula)
12:30 Outside time/storytime/singing
1:30 Nap #2
4:00 Nurse (I’m usually home by this time)
4:30 Mommy time
5:30 Catnap
6:15 Wake/Daddy time
7:00 Nurse
7:30-7:45 Bed for the night

Kelly said…
6 month old Twins

7am: 6.5oz/7.5oz bm bottle
7:20-8:15: playtime – usually play mat or tummy time
8:15-10: nap (I pump once they go to sleep)
10: 6.5/7.5oz bottle
10:30 go to park for walk and run errands
1:00 formula bottle
1:20 watch baby einstein video while I pump then play in exersaucers and jumperoo
2:30/2:45 nap
4:00 bm bottle -sometimes mixed with 2oz of formula
4:20 play in playroom, practice sitting – 5:30 daddy comes home and we either all go for a run or Daddy takes them while I stay home to pump, do laundry, wash bottles and have some “me” time.
7:00 6.5/7.5 oz bottles, just started baby food (sweet potatoes, green beans, and carrots)
then we have bath, songs/stories
7:45/8 Bed
10pm I pump and then wake up again at 3am to pump.

I’m really trying to keep up with them as much as I can. we have also been playing with the four hour schedule. The above schedule is if I manipulate it. Sometimes they go a little over.

Tonight we gave them a bottle at 4:15, then green beans at 6 then a four oz. bottle at 6:30 then Bed.

I feel like I run out of wake time activities. I just got babywise II and see that I need to do Independent play. We set up our pack and play this weekend so I plan to start using it tomorrow 🙂

6 months old

My daughter is 6 months old, on a 3 1/2 hour schedule, and NOT a big eater at all! She could easily go 4 hours without eating and be totally fine, but I’m not sure I can lengthen her awake time or naps at this point in time.

When I say she is not a big eater, at some meals she only eats 3-4oz and is perfectly happy until her next feeding! I tried introducing rice cereal last week. On the first day, she willingly opened her mouth it eat it and she hasn’t eaten it/opened her mouth since. I’ve decided to take a break for a few days with the solids and will start back with green veggies next week!

Her schedule now is:

6:30-7:00am – eat 6.5 oz
7:00-8:30am – play
8:30-10:00am – sleep
10:00-10:30am – eat 6 oz
10:30-12:00pm – play

Val,
I moved the naps back a little because she just doesn’t seem tired after only 2 – 2 1/2 hours of wake time. But even now, she is playing in her crib for 30 minutes before falling asleep at the beginning of each nap. I am having to wake her to eat lunch and dinner, but I don’t think I should push her naps back anymore…I mean she is already going 4 1/2 to 5 hours between meals during the day. Do you have any suggestions for other adjustments I should make?

Thanks! And thanks for all the schedules; it really helps to see what other families are doing!

On a 4.5 hour schedule (same schedule since 8.5 months). Has been reducing his bottle ounces recently – went from 24oz at 6 months to about 12-16oz per day since 9.5 months.

We offer a sippy of milk or water all day if he’s thirsty and might get another ounce or two that way. Not a big eater overall. Has access to a snack trap in his playroom – seems to be happier about eating on the go which I don’t like but am allowing the playroom Cheerios while he is learning how to feed himself.

Wake, 4-6oz bottle, and solids at 730am
Nap #1 from 10-12pm
Wake, 4-6oz bottle, and solids at noon.
Nap #2 from 230-430pm
Wake, 4-6oz bottle, and solids at 430pm. (If he eats well at this meal it’s dinner and he sits with us at gets a snack at 6pm-ish when we eat dinner. If not, 430pm meal becomes the snack and we try to feed him again at our dinner time).
Sit with us at dinner at 6pm and has puffs or other finger foods.
Bath and PJs at 630pm
7pm light play and wind down for bed
715pm bedtime bottle (3oz)
