An infant is a baby between 0–12 months. At this age, the baby is breastfeeding and requires so much cuddling, so they require so much of our time and energy. When you decide to stay home with your infant, establishing a schedule will help get things accomplished in the house. Here is my stay-at-home mom schedule with an infant.
Here is my simple stay-at-home mom schedule with an infant.
6:00 am—I woke up before my baby was up. I believe waking up before my baby helps me be more organized and achieve so many goals in a day. I start with bathing, and afterward, I prepare breakfast.
At 6:45 am, we have breakfast with my husband, and at 7 am, he leaves for work.
7:00 am—My baby is up. I change the baby’s diaper, cuddle, and nurse. . We also play for 15 minutes.
8:00 am: I place the baby on a lounger or activity mat and do some house chores together. Learn the habit of not holding the baby for long. Train the baby to sit alone on the couch or find a lounger or activity mat that you can place somewhere the baby will see you. I have an activity mat and I place it somewhere I can watch him and he can see me too. This cools him.
We live in a small apartment, so I can keep an eye on him as he has independent playtime.
So when it comes to cleaning the dishes, I hand wash them in a sink. Cleaning the dishes can take 10 minutes because I am only cleaning the morning cups and plates. Before I sleep, I make sure the dinner dishes and cups are clean.
I wipe the house daily for 15 minutes and do general cleaning on weekends.
8:30 am: I breastfeed my baby and he goes back to sleep. On a typical day, my baby sleeps for 2 hours. If your child has a sleeping problem, this book can help you.
10:45 a.m: I take a snack
11:00 a.m.: The baby is awake. I change the baby’s diaper and nurse him. I also dress him and go for a walk. During this time, I buy dinner, and the following day, snacks and breakfast.
11:30 a.m.: We are back home. I consider walking one of the daily exercises.
Noon: I take lunch, it’s usually leftovers. If there are no leftovers, I prepare something simple early in the morning as I prepare breakfast. My baby is less than six months old, so he is only breastfeeding.
12:30: We play and breastfeed him.
1:00: Afternoon nap. My baby sleeps for the other two hours.
1:30: I hand wash clothes. It takes 45 minutes since I do laundry daily.
2:30 pm: Nap for 30 to 45 minutes. Sometimes when I don’t feel like sleeping, I can decide to work on my blog or have “ME time”.
4:00 pm: baby is awake. I nurse him and change his diaper. We start preparing dinner together. It takes me, like, 1 hour to prepare dinner. I bathe him, and the husband is back from the office.
Between 5 pm and 7 pm, I read a book as I cuddle my baby (There are books for stay-at-home moms you can read)
7:00 Pm: we take dinner with my husband. My husband has time with the baby as I clean dinner utensils.
8:00 Pm: I nurse the baby, put on his pajamas, and he sleep.
8:30 pm: From here we have time with my husband and plan for tomorrow’s schedule. I make sure my husband’s clothes are ready for tomorrow, and sometimes he helps me with ironing. This makes my morning less stressful.
9:30 pm: Sleep time up to 6 a.m. Seven hours of sleep is enough for me. The baby wakes up at night for a few minutes to breastfeed.
Make sure your baby sleeps enough and feeds well.

On weekends, I alter the schedule. I woke up between 7-8 am or whenever the baby woke up.
Sometimes I don’t work on my blog, but if I have time and the mood, I can work on it.
On weekends, I do general cleaning, not for the whole house. I can decide this weekend to clean the bathroom and toilet. Next weekend I will clean the kitchen and other one-bedrooms and sitting area. In a month, I have done general cleaning for the whole house.
Sometimes I hire someone to do the cleaning in my house since I am earning from my blog. Learn how to start a simple blog and how to monetize it.
I am a full-time stay-at-home mom. I don’t hire house managers and I work on this blog.
Right now, so many things have changed because my kids are now grown, 10 and five years old. I have three blogs that I am earning money from, so I am hiring someone to wash clothes. My kids are helping me clean the house.

I’m looking forward to writing my stay-at-home mom schedule with teenagers.
Note that my stay-at-home mom’s schedule with an infant cannot be the same as yours. Therefore, it is important to find a schedule that works for your family. My schedule is to give you an idea of how to create one as a stay-at-home mom.
That’s my stay-at-home mom schedule with an infant. Sometimes it does not go as smoothly as I planned.
