Mom and baby playing together

Congratulations on moving to a four hour schedule! I always love the four hour schedule. It makes the day feel less hectic and the schedule feels a little more like just normal life. The day can flow in a very manageable way.

First, if you are not sure if your baby should be on a four hour schedule, read up on when to move to a 4 hour schedule here.

This post contains sample four hour schedules used by real families. Look through them and find schedules that might work for your family and daily routine.

4 Hour Schedule Milestones

Here are some basics to understand about the four hour schedule:

  • Babies might be ready for a 4 hour schedule as early as 12 weeks old, but most babies are not at a 4 hour schedule this young. 
  • The four hour schedule is much more common around 6 months old. That doesn’t mean you must move at 6 months old if your baby is not ready for it.
  • You will typically have about two hours of awake time and two hours of nap time, although some babies will be up for 1.5 hours and sleep 2.5 hours while others will be up for 2.5 hours and sleep 1.5 hours. 
  • On a four hour schedule, your baby will take 2-3 naps and eat 4-5 times a day typically.

Wake Time Activity Ideas

As your little one moves to a 4 hour schedule, you should also be having longer waketime lengths with your baby. This means you have more time to do things. This can be daunting. Here are some ideas of things to do with your little one. These are things you will do with your baby while your baby is awake.

  • Read books
  • Independent Playtime
  • Eat
  • Change diaper
  • Bath time
  • Get dressed
  • Tummy Time
  • Activity gym
  • Gross motor skill practice
  • Blanket Time
  • Play with a parent
  • Play with a sibling
  • Floor play
  • Go for a walk
  • Play outside
  • Run errands
  • Table time
  • Park
