Focusing on a child’s wake windows when it comes to routine can work for some. However, I often find that it confuses most and it may take longer to help your child’s body clock adjust on to a strong routine if all you are focusing on are the wake windows.
Twenty plus years of experience working with children, including hopping from time zone to time zone every few weeks has led to my approach. Once you have a strong body clock you can adjust naps and feeds around appointments, events and holidays.
I have made this little video to explain my approach.
Please note: I fully support parents who prefer their baby to feed and sleep on demand, but many parents who come to me are seeking guidance to help their baby in to a routine. Whatever you choose is right for your family is best.
