Babywise Baby and Toddler Schedules

See below for all of our Babywise baby schedules and toddler schedules.

Exclusively pumping? Schedules work insanely well for that as well! Click here to view some sample pumping schedules.

Baby’s LOVE routine. And quite frankly…I LOVE routine! I know when I can get out of the house, and for how long.

I know when our daughter will be hungry and when she will be tired. It’s hardly ever a guessing game.

Printable Babywise Schedule Newborn to 6 months

These schedules have worked so well for us, that if she is crying…I know it’s due to something other than hunger or tiredness… and Caroline builds her own schedules.

I provide the basic starting point, and she always gives me cues as to how and when I needed to adjust it.

So she tweaked and made them perfect!

The schedules that we used with Caroline worked so well, that I want to remember them when it comes time for baby number two, and I want to share our success with other mamas!

Baby #2 is now home, so you’ll also find his schedules listed below!

William was a preemie and started off in the NICU, so those schedules may also be of specific interest below.

Baby smiling after breastfeeding. Scheduling resources.

A baby is human…not a robot! So all of the schedules I built were flexible…

I allowed for 30 minutes of flex time either direction and adjusted the schedule as need be throughout the day.

If a baby is sick or teething or whatever else might be going on…the schedule is NO longer priority.

The basis of each schedule (or 1 cycle) is for the baby to eat, then have some play time or wake time, then sleep and repeat.

Babies do very well on consistent schedules.

It also allows you to plan your day and anticipate what a specific cry might be. I always follow a basic pattern throughout the day of eat, wake sleep.

Eat, Wake/Play, Sleep

Eat, Wake, Sleep Cycle

Find out more about what the cycle is, and how to implement it.

Eat, Wake, Sleep Cycle


This pattern will help your baby to learn to fall asleep without being nursed or bottle fed to sleep.

They will start to learn the pattern of events and will expect them!

This will help tremendously when you are trying to get your baby to learn to fall asleep on his/her own.

Baby sleeping in crib. All about naps and troubleshooting naps with babywise.

I read many blogs and books and general concepts before Caroline arrived. Everything from Babywise to the baby whisperer, etc.

My general rule of thumb is that you need schedules and organization, but you also have to be flexible and learn from your baby.


Important Babywise terms


Wake time:

This includes feeding time, and all awake time and playtime up until the nap.

Cycle length: 

From the start of feeding time, including wake time and the nap.

Example: If it takes baby 20 min to nurse, and then she is up for another 1 hr and 10 min, and then sleeps for 1.5 hours. The total time of 3 hours is the cycle time.

MOTN: 

Middle of the night

Sample Schedules


Below you will find a detailed breakdown of each age and what to expect.

Sample schedules are included along with information about wake time, naps, and nighttime sleeping.

I have also included personal experiences and special tips for each age!

There are several tables below that have schedules separated and listed by age. You’ll find:

  • Newborn- 6 month Babywise schedules
  • 7 month to 12 month Babywise Schedules
  • Toddler Schedules and Updates
  • Preschooler Schedules and Updates

For each age range, I’ve separated out Caroline’s schedules and William’s schedules.

You’ll notice that they are doing slightly different schedules at the same age!

This is normal, and to be expected. Each baby is unique in their needs.

Use these schedules as a place to start and reference, and adjust as needed for your child!

See the scheduling resources page for helpful posts on making adjustments to your schedule.
