Baby Log

baby log

Since leaving the hospital, my husband and I have continued to document when our daughter feeds and when she has bowel movements.  At what point can we stop documenting this type of information?  We understand that it is useful for the pediatrician to help diagnose certain issues, but is this something we should keep up for weeks / months?

 

Documenting feedings, stools, and voids can be stopped once your daughter is back to her birth weight ( two weeks old for most children). As a pediatrician, I only look at this information when children are having feeding or stooling problems. As a father, Maggie and I will use this information to help establish a daily routine. If your daughter is having feeding, growth or stooling problems, continue to log this information.
