Sample Schedule for 2 Under 2

DOTS - OurSchedule

Okay so I don’t know how, but we somehow have a schedule down two and a half months in.  This will obviously change over time (A’s nap will get later, C will eventually have 2 naps, etc.) but this is what has been working for us.  I sort of forced a 4 hour schedule on C but he took to it really well and we have all been doing great so it all worked out.  A’s timing is pretty consistent, C’s varies 30 minutes but sometimes more.  Here is what our typical day with 2 Under 2 looks like!

Time Activity
6:30/7am Wake up, both boys get new diapers and dressed and fed
8/8:30am C nap #1, play with A – this is a good time for an outing!
10:30am C bottle, watch A play
10:45/11am A lunch while C hangs out
11am Play with both boys 🙂
11:30am A nap (new diaper, sound machine on, lights off) – put C somewhere safe (crib, playpen, swing)
12pm C nap #2 (new diaper, sound machine on, lights off and swaddle if in crib, or you can put him in swing, pacifier)
1:30/2pm Both boys up from naps (sometimes earlier than 1:30, but try to help them nap until then) – new diapers and everyone comes downstairs
2/2:15pm A snack, C hangs out
2:30pm C bottle, A plays
3/3:30pm C nap #3, play with A – this is a good time for an outing!
