When Corbin was born, we were required by our hospital to track feeds and diapers. It was required to make sure that baby was getting what he/she needs and was having frequent wet/dirty diapers. As a new mom and someone who is VERY type A having to record this was helpful. Plus, when you go for your pediatrician appointments they want to know this information too. I found it helpful to start this routine early. When we got home it was an easy transition for recording this information, thanks to the help of The Tiny Tracker.
The Tiny Tracker is a notebook that allows you to record feedings, diapers and other notes. Plus, it has great tips, a place to write a to-do list and an area to write what you’re grateful for each day. Yes, there’s apps on your phone you could download, but I find less phone time the better with a newborn. The Tiny Tracker allows my husband, babysitters, or family to help record and write important information down for the day. (Take all the help you can!) Plus, it’s fun look back on the days to see how far your baby has come. Another fun aspect of The Tiny Tracker is it’s customizable!
In the beginning, you are trying to navigate breastfeeding and all the newborn things. It’s hard work to remember everything, especially when you’re sleep deprived. I quickly found that Colin really enjoyed taking ownership with recording our feeds and diaper changes. Sometimes dads have a hard time figuring out what they can do to help and naturally Colin took on the responsibility of documenting in The Tiny Tracker.
When we went to Children Hospital (day 6) we took the Tiny Tracker with us. Thank goodness we did because in the ER they asked about feedings and diaper changes. There’s be no way we could remember all of that! Thanks to The Tiny Tracker, it made it super easy for us to recall his history. During our stay we continued to track with The Tiny Tracker because at Children’s it’s protocol. Luckily we got in the habit right off the bat!
The Tiny Tracker will literally save you, especially through the crazy newborn stage! This is the best newborn item that we have and I don’t think we could live without it. To this day we use it EVERYDAY! It has saved us as new parents, no joke! It’s the notebook every mom needs. Snag yours HERE!
