Because Charlie had three different caretakers — me, Mr. Bee, and our nanny — it was really helpful to have a written schedule of when he ate, slept, pooped, and peed that all of us could easily access. So I created a form in Excel, made copies, had it bound into a book and all three of us filled it in daily beyond Charlie’s first birthday. We didn’t need to keep records for that long, but after awhile it just became a habit. Now I’m glad that we have such great records regarding Charlie’s eating and sleeping so I can reference them when baby bee #2 comes home. I also love to give these books as gifts for my pregnant friends!
Did you keep a daily schedule for your baby?
