Mommy and Baby Schedule at Six Months

Mommy and Baby Schedule at Six Months

     This week's mommy post is one that I personally love to read or watch.  I love seeing how other moms manage their time and love to implement new elements that might make my day more productive. In this post I share with you an hourly breakdown of what we do on a typical day and what tips I use to keep baby asleep through the night. 


     This post will be structured around my baby and I. I am an attorney with a part-time case load, blogger and stay/work-at-home mom. Because of my limited case load, I do not go in to court frequently and can do most of my work from home. The following is a typical day at Casa Haas:


7:00 a.m.    
Baby wakes up and gets diaper changed, then we have cuddles for about 30 min. 

7:30 a.m.    
We make breakfast and baby plays while momma catches up on emails, comments, and social media.  

9:30 a.m.   
I clean up the kitchen and start a load of laundry. If baby starts crying, I pick him up and put him in the Boba carrier while I finish picking up. 

10:30 a.m.  
Baby takes first nap of day and momma finally showers and then gets some work done. 
12:30 p.m.  
Baby is up from his nap and ready for a diaper change. I feed him baby food and 4 ounces of milk while eating my lunch 🍴 

1:30 p.m.
Baby gets an outfit change and tummy time in whatever room I am zone cleaning that day. I finish putting the wash in the dryer and head back to play with baby who is mega fussy by this point.

3:30 p.m.  
It's time for an 8 ounce bottle and a nap.

4:00 p.m. 
Baby is finally asleep and I get an hour of either some much needed quiet time, yoga, or more work. 

5:00 p.m.
Baby is up from his nap and ready to play. I place him in his exersaucer and fold clothes. I usually play music or listen to an Audible audio book at this time. 

6:30 p.m. 
Daddy is home and gets some play time with baby while I get dinner ready. 

7:30 p.m.
Dinner is ready and we are all ready to eat. Baby gets 4 ounces and takes a cat nap. 30 min or so. 

8:30 p.m.
Baby is up and ready for his bedtime routine. Bath time, pjs, snuggles and an 8 ounce bottle. I make sure he drinks all 8 ounces or he wakes up during the night. 

9:30 p.m
Baby is asleep for the night. I know this might be a late bedtime for some but this is what works best for our family. Corey gets home late on some days and I want to make sure baby gets enough daddy time.        

10:00 p.m.
It's mommy time! I've been practicing the "miracle morning" at night. It just fits our schedule best at this moment in our lives. In short, I practice techniques discussed in the miracle morning, by Hal Elrod. 

11:00 p.m.
At this time I either do some more work, work on the blog, or unwind with social media until midnight. 

12:00 a.m.
It's finally my bed time! 

Hope you enjoyed taking a peek into our day. Let me know what schedule tips work best for you! 


  1. Great routine. Wish I had made it work that well for me when mine were younger and had a great planner to help me along. I had a self made one and wasn't half as cute as they are now but made it work and it semi helped. Great job!

    1. Thanks! Not all days go so smooth, lol. I have to be willing to go with the flow ;) But I honestly, wouldn't have it any other way.
