Having a routine is crucial to the first couple months of having a newborn and a toddler at home. As a stay-at-home mom, your days begin to blur if you do not have a set schedule. It’s something I have been failing at for the last few weeks and it’s starting to drive me crazy and the kids too!  

So I decided to do something about it and what the something is, is a schedule…It has been amazing, we are up out of the house and productive and enjoying our days together.

My toddler knows what to expect in our day-to-day routine and my newborn is falling right into the schedule as well. It takes a little practice getting in the habit of trying to get two kids out of the house, but once you get the hang of it, it brings sanity for all of us.

Here are the benefits to having a daily routine and weekly routine for your family.

  • If you get up and schedule some time to yourself (and some coffee)you will have a more productive day.
  • Toddlers/infants thrive on routine. Knowing what to expect will keep them both happier throughout the day, which equals a happier Mommy!
  • If you have a weekly routine you will do new activities because you will search them out and have a plan on a calendar of when certain events are happening.
  • Having everybody up dressed and fed by 9:30 a.m. gives you the opportunity to actually get out of the house and enjoy the day (being a stay-at-home mom does not mean you stay home all day or we would all be crazy ladies). Check out this post, SAHM what to do with your baby/kids all day
