Messing with the Schedule

Last week, as I was breezing through my blog feed reader I read that my bloggy friend, E, puts her baby (who is the same age as Tate) to bed at 6 PM. This stopped me in my tracks. Tate goes down generally between 9 and 9:30. I started to fantasize about having my evening to myself. Imagine all the things I could get done!

Last night as Tate was doing his I am whiny and tired routine earlier than usual,  I had the genius idea to put him down an hour early. How naive I was. He went down without a hitch and I puttered around the house getting all sorts of things done. I crawled into bed after midnight and guess who decided to wake up as soon as I was drifting off to sleep.

Tate woke up at least 5 more times through the night and decided it was time to get up for the day at 6 AM, more than an hour before the sun was up and several hours before he normally does.

I have learned my lesson. No more tweaking the schedule – no matter how much I want to. If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.

Have you ever tried to change your baby’s schedule? What were the results?
