Q1: When It Comes To Establishing A Schedule For Baby, It Is Beneficial To Start You & Your Baby’s Day At A Certain Time. This Sets The Tone/Flow Of The Day. So Pick Your Ideal Time (Typically I See 7am) And Be As Consistent As You Can. In Addition, When You Wake Them Up At That Time, Start Their Day Off With A Morning Routine.

Q2: You Always Want To Make Sure That What You Are Doing Is Age Appropriate. This Is Important For Your Baby's Development & Will Help You Navigate You Alls Day. Knowing The Standard Awake Time For Your Baby’s Age Will Help You To Anticipate When Their Next Nap Should Be, But ALWAYS Get In Tune With Your Baby And Know His/Her Sleep Cues.
