If you’re a new mom, you probably asked other moms in your peers what their daily routine with a toddler is. If you’re a seasoned mom with many kids, you probably receive tons of toddler routine questions every day. 

Needless to say, routines help moms with toddlers get through their day smoothly while making sure their babies’ needs are met. Here is a sample daily routine for moms raising toddlers. 

7:00 A.M. Baby wakes up and eats breakfast

Mom wakes up earlier to prepare breakfast and has it ready by the time the kids wake up. 

8:00 A.M. Bath time

A nice cool bath will get the kids ready for a whole day of fun activities. 

8:30 A.M. Independent play in the toddler room

Toddlers can develop their imagination with self-play using age-appropriate toys. 

9:30 A.M. Snack time while watching educational videos

Mom takes a break from the household chores and the baby eats snacks while being entertained by kids’ songs on the TV. 

11:30 A.M. Lunch time

Baby must be famished from playtime so he should eat a healthy meal of fruits and vegetables as prepared by mom. 

12:30 P.M. Nap time for baby (and mommy too)

It’s time to take a break from the busy morning. Mommy can take a well-deserved nap while the baby dozes off too. 

3:00 P.M. Time for afternoon snacks 

Mom has prepared yummy snacks just in time for the baby to wake up from his afternoon nap. This will energize him for more playtime. 

3:30 P.M. Ride a bike at the park

It’s time to get some sun and play with other kids outdoors. 

5:30 P.M. Dinner time

An early dinner of vegetables will replenish your playful toddler’s energy and give him enough time to digest the food before bedtime. 

7:30 P.M. Read bedtime stories and cuddle time

Give your baby lots of hugs and kisses as you read through his favorite book. 

8:00 P.M. Bedtime

Lights out at 8:00 P.M. to give your toddler enough sleep time for another busy day in the morning. 

You can take our daily routine for toddlers as a guide to create your own or follow it completely. Just remember that each toddler is unique and might have different needs from other kids so each daily routine must be designed by moms especially for their own family.
