Do babies really need a routine or schedule? Most folks I know say they do. But my husband and I are really not routine or schedule type people. We both work from home, we love our flexibility, we like being able to be out of the house (with baby) any time of day, go backpacking with baby, etc... So we have made, thus far, zero attempts to get our 4 month old onto any type of routine. His amount of sleeping and times of sleeping are highly variable, but we just put baby to nap when we notice he's tired (walk him to sleep in a wrap, or nurse to sleep), and don't fuss about it. He seems happy. Is there any problem with this?
