No time & SleepFeed routine

I feel like i got no time.

it's true that newborns sleep lots more. i felt i had more time then. geez. nowadays it's more like trying to keep Eliza company when she's awake & going to sleeps. see i'm with her when she
- drinks milk
- awake/play time
- getting her to sleep
now that leaves me with my own stuff when she's asleep to do stuff...not counting the time i spend when she's asleep expressing BM. *faint*

plus i'm trying to keep her to a routine of feed / play / sleep. and trying to get her to hopefully sleep thru the night. so far what's been happening....
8am - wake up, milk
9am - bathe (went to clinic that day back by 1030am)
1030am - sleep (easy one cos she's tired out)
11am - wake up, milk then play
12nn - sleep
2pm - wake up, milk then play (left her on the play gym while i expressed milk, left her on the bouncy net while i did some admin stuff)
4pm - sleep (i take a bath)
5pm - wake up, milk, play (rocked her on the bouncy net..she enjoyed it quite a bit..lasted a long while)
7pm - sleep
8pm - wake up, milk, bedtime routine (of wipe down, change shirt, rub ruyi oil, say goodnight sweet dreams to her, turn the lights down, turn on lullaby) it took me 45mins b4 she fell asleep at about 9pm
