No need for strict schedules now, but around the three-month mark, you'll start to see a pattern in your baby's schedule. Here's how to maximize it.
As he nears his three-month birthday, your baby may begin to establish a regular daily pattern all on his own — waking, eating, and sleeping at approximately the same times each day, or at least in a predictable two- to four-hour cycle. (Not sure if this is the case for your baby? Take notes for a few days, jotting down the times he eats, naps, and is cranky.) If so, thank his for the favor; you'll likely find that if you follow his lead and stick to the pattern, he'll sleep well and cry less often. Plus, his consistency lets you plan your day more easily — if you can count on a two-hour nap in the morning, then you know you have time for a shower, a few chores, or a snooze of your own.
