So, everyone I come across always asks me this same bloody thing. I don’t know why it’s a big deal.
‘What’s his routine?’
Erm, huh? What the flying fudge is that? Routine? That’s laughable. As you have probably worked out, we don’t have ‘routine.’ Over time he has set his own sort of routine but it’s still very vague. He likes to go to bed around 6-7pm sometimes earlier as he gets very tired around then. But that is literally all our routine consists of. He has a bath when he needs one, he has boob when he needs one, he has food when we have food.
Me and my partner are the least organised people ever and we just play everything by ear. Routine is our worst nightmare. We like to have the freedom to know we can do what we want, when we want without having to be home by a certain point.
When Freddie was a newborn up until he was a few months old, life was bliss. Me and the man could pop him in the sling and go out to dinner and he would sleep aaaaaaaall the way through it blissfully. We could go shopping, go for walks, grab food, you name it. Whilst other new mums were at home panicking about how its 6:58pm and she only had 2 more minutes to get her baby to sleep, I was probably stuffing my face with food at a restaurant with Freddie in the sling.
For some people routine is necessary, for us it would be awful. Everything about a routine makes me feel depressed and anxious. And bored.
Maybe as Freddie grows up a routine may be more necessary but right now we are happy being 100% baby led and I hope we can stick with it throughout his childhood.
Anyway, let me know what your ‘routine’ is, thank you for stopping by and leave a comment!
See you soon 🙂
