Day in the Life at 5 months old

Rosalie is 25 weeks old now, so about 5 and a half months old. We don’t really have an average day in our house as Nick works shifts so every day/week is different. I tried to record a pretty ‘normal’ day for us, one where we weren’t doing anything special anyway.  You can view our day in the life at 5 months old vlog here.
Here’s how our day went:

 

5.00 | Rosalie woke up and I fed her before putting her back down in her cot for a few more hours.
8.30 | Rosalie woke up for the second time. I changed her bum and then we had cuddles in Mummy and Daddy’s big bed.
9.00 | I fed Rosalie for the second time, Rosalie then played on the bed with her toy whilst I got ready for the day.

11.00 | I breastfed Rosalie again and then tried to put her down for a nap.

6.30 | Rosalie had a bath and I got her ready for bed.
