A couple more questions though. What do you do when your child doesn't listen to you in places that you can't use the naughty step? For example, last night in the bath tub, my son wouldn't stand up when I needed him to in order to rinse him off. I had to physically stand him up (killing my back in the process) and then he still wanted to sit back down.

I would like to know what a daily routine for a 9 month old should look like. I have been all over the web and everywhere I look it says that children thrive with a daily routine but I cannot find an example of one for infants/toddlers. We have a very consistent dinner (~6p), bath (~6.30p), reading (~7pm), bed (~7.30p) and wake-up (~7.30am) routine. It is in between wake-up and dinner that I have no routine and am not sure what I should be filling it with. Especially how long naps should be and how many. It seems like my son sometimes sleeps most of the day and then other times, doesn't sleep that much. HELP!
