Trying to create a schedule for your little one is no joke. Believe me, I know. Right now Jackson’s 4 month baby schedule is a little off from where I’d like it to be, but lately, this is the schedule we’ve been sticking to.
This month we’ll be working on getting his wake time a little earlier and hopefully putting him to bed by no later than 8PM, so I’ll keep you guys posted on how that goes!
Remember, you’re doing great, mama! Regardless of how hard this is right now and/or how little sleep you’re getting, you’re killing this motherhood thing!
Now here’s Jackson’s 4 month baby schedule, plus a few of his monthly photos!
4 MONTH BABY SCHEDULE
8:00 AM – Wake Up For The Day + Feed
10:00 AM – Nap #1
11:00 AM – Feed
1:00 PM – Nap #2
2:00 PM – Feed
3:30 PM – Nap #3
5:00 PM – Feed
6:15 PM – Nap #4
8:00 PM – Feed
9:15 PM – Nursing + Bedtime
Like I mentioned before, we’ll be working on dropping that fourth nap of the day and putting this little dude to bed earlier, so wish us luck!
It’ll likely take some adjusting and won’t happen overnight, but that’s what we’ll be working towards.
As for his nighttime sleep, I’m planning on dream feeding him sometime between 10 and 11PM, and the goal would be to not have to feed him til morning.
Will that happen? Knowing my child, probably not, lol but we’ll see how it goes!
BTW, we’ve been making some progress with his sleeping lately and at the very least he’s sleeping in his own bassinet now. Here’s the 7 day video diary I did where I talked about how that went.
Anyway, if you’re struggling to create a 4 month baby schedule, hope this helps a bit. The most important thing you can do is to stay consistent, and really, at the end of the day, all that matters is that you love on that baby of yours!
