Does this sound familiar?

    I don't believe in putting young babies on a schedule.  My daughter naps when she's tierd and eats when she's hungry.

    MY kids do. I start a routine/schedule from birth, and it sets in soon after.

    We breastfeed on demand, and let them sleep when tired. It doesn't take long for them to form their own schedules.

    We never schedule feedings, but yes they follow a schedule/routine for sleeping. I've found that they sleep much better that way.

    Were mostly on demand right now. He's made a pretty good schedule on his own

    Babies should be on some kind of schedule. IT doesnt have to be a strict schedule.

    I believe in a night time routine, to let them know when it's bedtime, but that's it.

    I try to, but dd does her own thing.

    My dd has always had her own routine going, it's always worked great so we never messed with it.

    We don't really have a schedule but we do have sort of routine as he is fed on demand and after that, I hold him up a bit if he does'n fall asleep, we play then a diaper change and then nap. It pretty much works well for us and prevents me from getting caught up in something
