Sample Babywise Schedules for Toddlers: One to Three Years Old. Sample schedules for toddlers ages 12 months to three years old.

This post contains sample Babywise schedules for toddlers. These schedules were used by real Babywise babies. When you have a baby, schedules change frequently. This is especially true before you are on a four hour schedule. Something I love about once you get to the four hour schedule is that your schedule doesn’t change a lot after that. Once your child reaches a year old, there are changes, but it isn’t weekly like it was in the young baby months and newborn days. There are big changes ahead, like dropping to one nap a day.

Sample Toddler Schedules

I have listed the schedules of my children by month. These are the schedules we used from 1 year old until three years old. For more details on ages, see The Pre-Toddler Summary Index (ages 12-18 Months) and the Toddler Summary Index (ages 18-36 Months).

12 Months

I still did 4 liquid feedings a day once both turned a year. We weaned from the breast at a year, but neither would drink more than 6 ounces per meal, and I knew they should have about 24 ounces of milk in a day. Kaitlyn will sporadically drink 8 ounces at some meals, then less than 2 at others. She is less predictable in what she drinks, though it does seem to be evening out as time passes.

KAITLYN
7:30: Wake, drink milk, eat breakfast
Between: the time here includes bath, getting ready, and solo playtime each day. It also many times includes sibling playtime.
9:30: nap
11:30: wake, drink milk, eat lunch
Between: the time here includes free time and often sibling playtime. As the weather is getting nicer, we also spend a lot of time outside at this time.
1:30-1:45: nap
3:45-4:00: wake, drink milk
4:00ish: solo playtime
4:40: the activities for this time of day vary from day to day. We run errands at this time when needed. We to to the library. We will go on family walks. We will go outside and play. We have free time inside.
5:30: dinner. Kaitlyn is moving from Babyfood and pretty much only eats what we are eating.
7:00: drink milk and then I try to get some babyfood in her, though she usually only has a couple of bites. This is just my last effort to try to control the food going in directly 🙂 I feel this step phasing out. After food, she gets ready for bed and we read a story.
7:45: she is in bed.

MCKENNA
8:30 AM–wake, eat (prunes or peaches/apricots and oatmeal, milk, yogurt). This is when we do a bath (four days a week) and independent playtime. We then do sibling playtime.
10:30 AM–nap.
12:30 PM–wake, nurse, solids (green veggie and applesauce. Sometimes mix with blueberries or cherries. Milk. Finger foods–including cheese). She then “helps” me put Brayden in rest time (which just means telling him to go) and Kaitlyn down for her nap. We then do blanket time followed by free play with me in the same room.
2:30 PM–nap
4:30 PM–wake, milk, solids (yellow veggie and bananas or pears). Then time with Daddy.
5:30ish PM–dinner with family. Finger foods and what we are having. Then time with family.

14 Months

Between 12 and 14 months, he moved away from eating baby food and more toward eating exactly what we were eating. Around 14 months, the transition was basically complete and he was eating dinner with us. I would try to get some baby food in him just because he seemed to eat more that way, but he was growing up and not that interested. I maintained the 4 milk feedings for the time being.

With Kaitlyn (who is 13 months and 3 weeks when I type this), she was done with babyfood all together closer to 13 months. This isn’t surprising since she never really liked it anyway. She also doesn’t drink a solid 6 ounces at each meal. Some she drinks more than others, and it isn’t consistent from day to day which meals she will drink more. Because of that, I offer her 8 ounces at each meal. Some she drinks 8, some 2. I don’t really worry about it.

17 Months

This is the age Brayden dropped his morning nap. He might have been ready earlier, but I waited until this age for two reasons. Reason one is that I was in my first trimester with Kaitlyn until he was about 17 months and needed the extra break in the day. Another is that the time change happened right after he hit 17 months. We dropped the nap the Saturday before the time change. Brayden has always been able to handle a full dropping of a nap cold turkey. He took about a week to take a longer afternoon nap (instead of just 2 hours). Here is what the schedule was once he took the longer nap.

BRAYDEN
7:15: eat breakfast (milk included)
11:30: eat lunch (milk included)
1:00: nap
4:00: wake
5:30ish: Dinner (milk included)
7:00: drink milk (I would give him whatever milk he hadn’t had for the day to equal 24 ounces)
7:30: in bed

Kaitlyn is now just 17 months old, and still takes 2 naps a day. She is getting closer to dropping that nap, but is not quite ready. Here is her schedule:

KAITLYN
7:30: wake up and eat breakfast. This usually consists of milk, fruit, yogurt, and some dry cereal.
9:45: nap
11:30: wake up and eat lunch. This includes whatever Brayden and I are eating.
2:00: nap
4:00-4:30: wake up
5/5:30: dinner with the family. She eats whatever we are eating.
Random: a couple of days a week, she will ask for more milk between dinner and bedtime. I give it to her when she asks for it, but I no longer offer a 4th liquid feeding.
7:45: in bed

We also do a daily chore each day. The exact time varies and is based on what the chore is. For example, Mondays she helps put her laundry away. This happens in the evening since I spend the day washing the laundry. Tuesdays, we dust. We do this in the morning hours.

During the day, we will do learning activities, play outside, go for walks, go to the park, go do other fun stuff…what we do each day has varied a lot so far.

3 Years Old

Brayden’s schedule has shifted a bit recently. I like the kids to nap at the same time, so I usually let him stay up until her naptime. I have also started getting them up at the same time, and have somehow gotten him to go to her schedule instead of her to his.
7:30: eat breakfast (milk included)
12:00: eat lunch (milk included)
1:45: nap
4:30-5:00: wake up
5:30: dinner (milk included)
8:00: in bed

Snacks
The kids had one snack a day sometimes around 10:00 AM. It is just some time between breakfast and lunch. That is their longest interval between meals that they are awake since we eat dinner as a family relatively early.
