The first few days and weeks with a newborn are a blur of feeding, sleeping and crying. While your newborns needs may be sporadic, it won’t be long before patterns develop. Once those patterns begin to form, you can help your babe settle into a daily routine. A printable baby schedule chart can help you identify patterns and figure out a routine that works for the whole family.

Printable Baby Schedule Chart
Although routines change as baby grows, having a general idea of when your baby will need to eat or sleep helps the whole family feel more settled.
Now that my daughter is three months old, I can look back and clearly see when patterns in her eating and sleeping started to develop. Those patterns slowly became routine for us so that I have a pretty good idea of what to expect on an average day. Of course, anything (like my current head cold) can throw a monkey wrench in our routine, but generally I know when she will sleep and when she will be hungry.
It is important to note that routines are not established overnight, and it may take several weeks to see a pattern emerge. But once you identify a pattern, you can encourage that pattern or encourage tweaks to that pattern to create a routine that works for the whole family.
