3 Month Old Routine

3 month old routineTell us about your 3 month old’s day. Roughly what time are they awake, asleep. How often do they feed (if bottles – how much)? What do you do with them when they are awake?

  •  My 12 week old wakes at 7 sleeps again at about 9-10 usually for about an hour. Naps on and off while we are usually out and about and has 1 or 2 sleeps of about 2-3 hours in the afternoon before going down for the night at 10 and waking for a feed at about 4 and returning to sleep until morning. Breast feeds 2-4 hourly through the day and plays mainly with me and toys and has tummy time in between.   Lauren

  •  My ds 3mths goes to bed approximately 9pm wakes at about 2am bf then sleeps till 5.30/6 bf play nap play (while I’m dealing with the other 3 kids) bf, drop kids off at school/preschool (sometimes he just has to wait for feed till we get home) cat naps a lot during day but a good sleep about 11 or 12 anywhere between 2-4hrs but my routine changes as I have other kids to tend to as well always doing something!!!

  •  My little girl is formula fed and put herself into her own routine from about 8 weeks old. We have been truly blessed with a very good sleeper with her daddy’s appetite!
  • -Generally wakes between 6/7am, sleeps in til 7.30am if we’re lucky! -Bottle/play or a little tv time while mum has a quick shower and some breakfast then down for a sleep once she starts getting tired. Or if we are out for the day we generally head out early and she naps on and off in the car/pram. -11-11.30am bottle/play/sleep -3-3.30pm bottle/nap/or play on play mat or spend some time with dad once hes home from work -5.30-6.15pm bath time after some nappy free time -6.30pm bottle/read a book together -7-7.30pm bedtime -9.30-10.30pm dreamfeed and generally sleeps through until 6-7am. If she does wake a little earlier, she can usually resettle on her own or sometimes will bring her into bed with me so we can both get some extra zzz’s and she generally sleeps a lot better cuddled into mummy. But otherwise we do not cosleep overnight, just the occasional nap. Enjoying this while it lasts! Lol    Renae
  •  My 3month old is breastfed with a formula bottle at late avo/early evening feed. Wakes between 5&6, play, feed play sleep is each session. Sleeps anywhere from 20 min to hour & half during day. Usually one or two longer aleepa and one or two shorter ones. Fit in bath every other avo around 4:30/5, formula bottle is between 5&7 usually and takes around 70/80ml on average. Sleeps well after bottle in longer blocks mostly till morning between 6 & 8 feeds a day. Not much a routine hey.    Courtney
  •  My little guy (bottle fed on 180ml p/feed at the moment) is so tired by 5pm, so off to sleep he goes… Till 2:30 am, then a feed and back to sleep and wakes between 7-8am. He then has a play, then naps/ plays/ feeds every few hours during the day till 5pm. For play we clap hands, grab feet, poke out tongues, loves to stand and he already loves the wiggles??? Particularly Henry the octopus! He is very happy.   Lisa
  •  My little girl is three months tomorrow. She wakes anywhere between 7-9am. She usually has five bottles of 150 ml. When she is awake I lay her on my legs facing me and talk to her, I play music for her, I put her on her play mat, take her for walks round the backyard. Lots of different things she usually has two or four sleeps during the day depending how long each nap is, then we have a bath around 6 or 7, then last bottle around 8 and is usually asleep by 830-9pm. Generally sleeps through the night most nights now though will sometimes wake for a bottle occasionally.    Natalie
  •  My little munchkin is on formula and feeds between 3 and 4 hourly. She sleeps through the night. 8 until 6:30 with a dream feed at 11. She has 30 to 45 min naps during the day. We gave tummy time (which she hates), nappy off time at that time she plays with daddy on her play mat. We sing songs while I do the dishes, washing or other housework.    Sarah
  •  My 11 week old (basically 3 months) feeds anywhere between 2 and 4 hourly, sometimes cluster feeds at night and sleeps between 5 and 10 hours at night followed by 4-5 hours. He co-sleeps and is worn mostly during day sleeps or is in his bassinet. He is normally awake at 5:30/6:30 is awake for an hour or two, back to sleep till 10 and awake for 2 hours. I read him books; he has tummy time, plays with his sister and toys. Then sleeps from 12-3 ish, and is awake from then till bedtime with the occasional power nap. We sing songs and he watches me make dinner and fold clothes.    Madison

  •  My 11 week old formula feeds at 6,9,12,3,6,9 sleeps for around minute’s 1 and a half hour after bottle and most days 2-3 hour sleep at lunch time. Play time in between these times and sleeps from 9pm-6am. 150ml in each bottle.   Simone
  •  My 3mth DD is FF. On 125ml feeds 3hrly. Usually 3, 6, 9, 12, 3, 6, 9. Will sleep overnight usually from 9/10pm till 2/3am. Eat/Play/Sleep is the routine we follow, always doing a nappy change before feed to wake her up properly. Playtime usually consists of tummy time, playing in her rocker/bouncer, pulling faces at each other as she is starting to copy facial expressions, time on her play mat playing with toys, looking in mirror, listening to music, singing, watching tv. She just loves company! Usually very settled, especially good seeing as she was 7wks prem n they can take longer to adjust to big wide world.    Kellie
  •  My little man goes down at 7pm and sleeps until 2 or 3am then feeds again at 5 then up at 6:30. He’ll play on the play mat for 20 mins then has 10 mins of tv… Allows about 30 mins for me to scoff 2 coffees and breakfast. Nap at 7:30 for maybe 20 mins then feeds again. This eat/play/sleep routine continues for the rest of the day feeding 125mls formula every 1.5-2 hours (reflux baby). Play time alternates between lights and sounds play mat, tummy time, laying in the backyard, reading and an episode of Rob the Robot or Octonauts never hurt anybody if we go out in the car he sleeps much longer but if we’re just at home, I’m lucky to get 30 minutes per nap lucky he sleeps at night!    Amy
  •  Sleeps approx 13 hours/day. Bed 7pm to approx 1-2am for bf then sleep til 3-4am and feed then sleep til 630-8am then feed/play/feed sleep all day. Will sleep around 45 mins x 2 plus a 1-2 hour sleep x 1. Play tummy time, play mat, pram, wander round house and look at diff things, kick about naked for a bit.   Julia
  •  Sleeps through 7pm-7am. Wakes, feeds (3 hourly = 5 feeds a day), after feed is play under activity mat/going for long walks/chewing her books and toys & a little bit of tummy time (she hates it!) and pants off time on her play mat. She only has a few 45min power naps during the day but I’m ok with that as she sleeps all night!    Kym
