We've had a bedtime routine for DS1 that has been working WONDERFULLY for the past 3 months or so.

Now I just had DS2 last week and can see we REALLY need to get into more routine. I feel so disorganized though, I don't know where to start!

Should I try adding a morning routine first and get that going well before adding more routine, or should I come up with a plan for the whole day/week and adjust as we go till it works for us?

What does your routine look like?

DS1 will be 4 at the end of the year, and DS2 will be 1 week tomorrow!
Our routine so far is
4ish-4:30 clean up & make dinner
5 DH gets home and we eat.

It usually takes DS1 an (aggravating) hour or more to eat dinner. Almost the whole time we are begging, and coaxing him to stay at the table, and sit down while we are eating. He'll try everything to get away from the table and delay the whole process. He seems to eat better if I feed him at 4:30, but I really feel like we should be eating as a family . . .

Then if there is time left he plays with DH for a bit before we start the bedtime routine at 6:30

Which is bath (if needed), pajamas, brush teeth, drink of water and lights out. All of that goes so smoothly that he is usually prompting US to the next step and he falls asleep in 10-15 minutes!

Now for the rest of the day . . .
