Updated Night Routine… WITH A BABY!

Hi, readers. Let me just start this post by, again, saying I’m sorry for not posting for over a month! Things just got a little crazy here at home, and, let’s just be honest, I wanted to write this post, but ended up getting lazy. Also, HAPPY MARCH! My daughter now has weekly weigh-ins with her pediatrician, so that takes up a little up of our days. She’s now not wanting to take her long naps for me to do write. I think it’s because of the time change that’s got her routine messed up a little bit.

Well, y’all came here to read my updated night routine with a baby, so keep reading!

I actually have this written down beside me, but I haven’t stuck to it since I tried starting it.

So, really, around 8:00 or 8:30, my daughter will be sleeping. Basically taking a long nap. She’ll have a bottle prior to this at around 6:30 or 7:00. Just depends.

My husband will then come in the door around 9:15, and he’ll do what he does when he comes home. Changes out of his clothes he wore to work. I’ll go lay in bed around 10:00, if he takes a shower.

I’ll watch an episode, or half an episode, of either Friday Night Lights or Gilmore Girls. I’m on a Gilmore Girls kick right now. I watched maybe half of the first season on Netflix yesterday. I think I started on episode 5 or 6, and I’m now on episode 13.

After almost falling asleep during an episode of either show, I’ll turn on a movie and go sleep.

My husband will stay up with our daughter and feed her every 3 hours until about 3 or 4 in the morning. He doesn’t go to bed right when he gets home. He stays up for our daughters feedings, and then he’ll come to bed. I’ll wake up at around 8 in the morning, and do the whole day over again.

Anyways. This post is really short. My bedtime routine is very simple. Go brush the teeth, lay in bed and watch an episode of a show and fall asleep, turn on a movie, and officially go to bed.

Thanks for reading! Hope y’all have a blessed day!
