Our Daily Routine

 

6 Month Old Twins Daily Routine

Interested to see what an average day in our house is like? Here is our daily routine with our 6 month old twin girls!

Use this as a guide for your baby/twins.  Just having a plan/routine will make each day easier and more manageable.  Let us know what you think!

6am:

Wake Up/First Bottle (8oz of formula w/ probiotic, reflux medication and iron supplement)

Megan is the early riser and she feeds our twins in the morning.  She feeds them together using the bouncers and some towels for propping the bottle (yeah.. we know propping isn’t encouraged but the people who say that obviously haven’t had twins!)

Diaper Change Following Bottle

Playtime for 1 ½ hours

8am:

Morning Nap

10am:

Second Bottle (6oz of formula)

Diaper Change Following Bottle

Playtime for 1 ½ hours

Noon:

Mid-day Nap (sometimes they skip this)

Examples of what we do to entertain them:

  • Music (we sing to them, play music on the iPad or grab the guitar)
  • Work on tummy time
  • Work on various exercises such as sitting and neck stretches
  • Go for a walk

2pm:

Afternoon bottle (6oz of formula)

Diaper Change Following Bottle

Play for remainder of the day/keep them entertained

Cat-nap (if they skipped their mid-day nap)

4pm: ***Sometimes***

“Happy Hour” bottle (2-4 oz of formula to hold them over to dinner)

6pm:

Dinner Bottle (8oz of formula with probiotic and reflux medication)

Diaper Change

Lotion up and change them into “onesies” and then into their Baby Merlins Magic Sleepsuit (Use “Twinning15” for 15% off your order!)  ***TOP 5 Purchase For Us***

6:30pm:

Bedtime

11pm:

Dad is on night duty, so he does them one at a time.  While the bouncers make it easy to feed both of them at the same time, it also seems to wake the girls up/rile them up more. Changing and feeding them both takes under an hour total.
