Schedule/Naps?

I was just curious if other babies are on schedules, and how many naps they take each day?

Connor doesn't really have a schedule either, but he probably takes about 3 naps a day, maybe sometimes 4, especially if you count sleeping in the car. It took me forever to get my first on a schedule, and I didn't really push it. I bet it will probably take me a while to get Connor on a schedule, too, but that's ok. Right now, I just go by his cues...if he is crying and seems hungry, I feed him...if he is acting tired or his left eyelid is red, I put him down for a nap. If he is happy and playing, I count my lucky stars, and let him play away, lol. Especially if the play is happening without me having to hold him!

Nathan is down to 2 naps a day - both range from an hr to 3 hrs. Occasionally he'll take a 3rd nap but it's usually only for 30 min or so. At night time he goes down at 7 and gets up between 5-6. I've eliminated his night bottle recently so this is new.

Noelle is on a bedtime schedule. We start getting her ready at 8:30 and usually by 9:30 she is completely out. She sleeps until about 5-6am. I will nurse her then normally she is back in bed until 9am. Naps are tricky. What she will normally do is cat nap while nursing through out the day. She will take normal naps for everyone but me.

Breylon normally takes 20 to 40 minute naps...usually about 3 or 4 a day.

A lot of it depends on if he's in one place for the day or if we are out and about, running errands, etc.

If it's a regular day, I have to wake him at 5:30am to feed him, dress him & drive him to my parents. He falls back asleep in the car seat & takes a three hour nap. My mom said he will cat nap during the day (15 mins here, up to 45 mins there) but when he's with me he'll stay awake for a while after his morning nap and then take another long nap, between 2-3 hours around 2pm. He's usually ready for bed between 7-8pm and he'll sleep all night until I wake him (or on the weekends he'll sleep in and wake by himself after about 11 hours).

Miranda sleeps for 45 min naps once in am and and in the afternoon. She also naps 25 mins around 5 pm. Most nights she gets in her crib for bed at 7 pm. Some nights she can barely make it to 7 pm.
