schedule for 8 month old

Our 8 month old is a good nightime sleeper, but not always a good napper. She loves to stay up late and sleep in (like her parents ). She eats every 5 hours and her last feeding was at 11pm. She would then sleep until we woke her up at 9:30. If we didn't wake her, she would sleep to 10 or 11. I'm looking for ideas of sleep and nap schedules. What are you doing?

Re: schedule for 8 month old

We have no schedule. My DD is seven months old today, and she eats every two hours, round the clock. Obviously you have more of a routine than we do. DD takes about 2.5 naps a day - the first one about an hour and a half at most, the second lasts about an hour, and the third one is just sleeping on my chest for about 20-30 minutes in the evening. She sleeps about 10-11 hours a night.

Re: schedule for 8 month old

we finally have a scehdule!! i have been trying to establish one since she was 3 months old and it has finally taken sorts
usually up by 7-7:30
first nap by 9
second nap by 1
bath at 5:30
in bed by 6 (she awakens to nurse around 4am and then goes back to sleep)

I would STRONGLY reccomend reading this:
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/re.../dp/0449004023

It's a great book behind the science of childrens sleep cycles from birth onwards. I refer to it all the time. it has really helped me out a lot and i can say it's finally paid off now. Life is way more predictable and she is turning into a great napper.
