The Planner

The Planner

As a Planner you like a bit of organization to your day. Whether it’s your busy lifestyle or personal preference, you feel happiest when things go according to plan.
Breakfast, lunch, dinner, bath, bed. Then repeat!

While others may find such a routine mundane, you thrive because you know babies do well with routines and frankly, you enjoy knowing when you’ll have down time everyday.

You believe daily schedules are best for both baby and parent. There are so many surprises and curve balls that come with raising kids, so it’s nice to have a bit of predictability.

You embrace nightly routines and consistent bedtime with open arms and will have few issues sticking to a sleep training plan. You’re a planner, after all!

Make sure to go easy on yourself when things don’t go according to plan. Parenting is full of hiccups, so try not to stress too much about it.

The Happy Medium

The Happy Medium

As a Happy Medium you are all about compromise and flexibility. You feel happiest when things are balanced.

You’re happy to implement a baby schedule, because you know babies thrive on routine, but it may need tweaking to fit in with your family. You may have a few children with competing schedules and you do the best you can to make it work. You only get stressed on the hairiest of days.

You’re ok turning down some social invites so baby can get to bed on time- unless it’s something really exciting! You can always get back on schedule tomorrow.

Happy Mediums need to make sure that most days fall into similar patterns (consistent nap and bedtime) or they run the risk of everything getting off track- including baby’s sleep.

The Free Spirit

The Free Spirit

As a Free Spirit you wake each morning, and take it from there. Sunny days call for impromptu trips to the zoo and friends dropping by unexpectedly are not a worry.

You feel happiest when things are relaxed and spontaneous- you enjoy letting kids be kids! You don’t get easily stressed by mess or tantrums.

You’ve never really been into routines yourself so baby schedules don’t really come naturally to you. You know your baby or toddler needs better sleep (as do you) but you’re reluctant to impose a routine- you’d hate to start watching the clock and rushing home for bedtime.

Free Spirits run the risk of leaving no time to themselves, or their partners. A bit of structure, like consistent bedtime and nap times, would get your little one sleeping better and still leave plenty of time for spontaneity.
