Baby Schedule While On Vacation

Vacationing with your baby/babies any time soon? Check out our sample schedule and tips!

I’ve gotten some questions on our daily schedule with the babies on vacation so I wanted to share! Though we’re only a few days in, we are loving how this schedule has given us so much flexibility to explore.

OUR #1 TIP: ONE GOOD CRIB NAP PER DAY! 

Babies especially as young as ours get tired easily – after 2-2.5 hours, they’re toast! Make sure they are able to get at least one solid crib nap a day (blackout shades, sound machine, swaddle if using, etc.).

BUSY MORNING SAMPLE SCHEDULE

7-7:30am: wake + breakfast bottle 

9:30am-11:30am: in the stroller or baby carrier for exploring (hope for *some* sleep during these two hours!)

11:30am/12pm: lunchtime bottle 

1:30/2pm: CRIB NAP

Note: Depending on sleep during morning exploring, nap could come earlier if needed 

4pm: afternoon neighborhood walk – also a great time to get our groceries/dinner pickup

5pm: dinner bottle

6pm: bathtime

6:30pm: bedtime 

*Flexibility is the key to a happy vacation! Do not stress if you’re 30 mins off here and there. Feeling constrained to a rigid schedule only adds STRESS!

BUSY AFTERNOON SAMPLE SCHEDULE

7-7:30am: wake + breakfast bottle 

9:30am-12pm: CRIB NAP

12pm: lunchtime bottle 

2/2:30pm: in the stroller or baby carrier for exploring (hope for *some* sleep during these hours!)

5pm: dinner bottle

6pm: bathtime

6:30pm: bedtime 

I hope this helps you as you plan your next adventure traveling with baby!
