Little Finn's schedule at 11 weeks!

So, the last few days i've wondered if Finn's schedule is normal. He is such a good little boy and we are so blessed with him. Below is the schedule he has been doing for the last 2 weeks. It's not exact so thats why there are some time ranges. But, if you are a mom-please comment and let me know. I know every baby is different. But i'd love some expert advice from the moms out there :)

Around 6:30 or 7:00am Finn wakes up for the day (if he's not up by 7 am, i wake him). He drinks a 6 oz bottle (with zantac for reflux). Then we get dressed for the day. We leave the house at 7:50 for work and weekday daycare. Typically he falls asleep in the car around 8:00ish

8:30am He's dropped off at weekday and mommy goes to work. I transfer him to the crib and he sleeps til his next feeding.

Around 10:30 or 11:00am He eats another 6 oz bottle and has playtime with his friends. Tummy time is included in this playtime.

Around 12:00 or 12:30pm he goes down for another nap. Typically he will sleep for 2 hours here.

Around 2:30 or 3:00pm he eats another 6 oz bottle. This time he stays up until mommy picks him up at 4:30. We get packed up in the car and he will fall asleep around 4:45 and sleep til we get home.

5:30pm, we're home and he's up and plays while we eat dinner. He stays up til his next feeding.

7:00pm he gets a 6 oz bottle with zantac for relux and a teaspoon of rice cereal. After the feeding, we have bathtime, storytime, and bedtime prayers. He gets his paci, bear, and is swaddled and asleep for the night by 8:05. And he's sleeping til 6:30 or 7am.

On a different note, we took Finn to meet Santa this weekend. Below is my favorite picture-i know i'm crazy cause he's crying but he's still so cute! And Santa is pretty scary :).

Yep that sounds normal (well, normal for a GOOD baby!) You're a lucky mommy! :) He is too precious!

Girl, you are trucking. That's a totally fantastic schedule that works great for you working as well.
As long as he will stick to it, you let him! I can't believe he's sleeping through from 7-7. Both mine needed a dream feed around 10 for a LONG time. I guess that's a benefit of formula-keeps their tummies fill longer.
You're doing fantastic-keep up the good work!

WOW!!! I don't have any expert advise for this of course since we don't have any kiddos yet. BUT this makes me feel more at ease about having them for sure. This is great! You certainly are blessed!!!
