Time table or program..
Infants are their own masters, its difficult to have a ‘schedule’ for them. In our case, the closest we came was Bath time which was around 11am – naturally depending on punctuality of the concerned Helper. At times we had to keep him awake so massage and bath was not missed. Other than that, there was no schedule for the tiny tot.
I however did try to keep a time table. The main aim was that the household ran like a clockwork and new Mom’s diet was always spot on. It also ensured I had time for stock taking, cooking, extra cooking, tending to my Bonsai and the occasional nap.
During the day, we also did not overtly try to stop sounds (Mixer or Cooker whistles and so on), the aim being that the young one gets familiarised as soon as possible. I read some where it helps babies understand the day-night concept.
Practically, it meant, I did not have to shut doors when cooking or switch off the door bell!
What has been your experience? Did you have a schedule for baby and Mom? I am sure my thoughts may cause a deja vu to some of you especially someone who has hosted a new born. I would love to hear from you!
See you tomorrow folks!
