Keep Track of your Baby's Feedings and Dirty Diapers*

It is important to note that the area for recording the amount of baby formula is not meant to imply that breastfeeding babies should be supplemented with formula. In fact, they usually should not be given formula unless you are instructed to do so by your Pediatrician and/or a lactation consultant. Instead, it is so that formula babies can also use the log.

Notes



* circle the appropriate times, using the '|' character to indicate that something happened on the half hour, like using the '|' between 1 | 2 to indicate 1:30. Also include any special 'Notes', like your baby's weight, whether or not you are pumping, etc. Remember that your newborn baby should be breastfeeding 8-12 times a day, and by the time they are 5-7 days old, be having at least 6 wet diapers and 3-4 loose yellow stools each day.
