I am working on an article for Type A Mom and was remembering the early days with newborn twins. I went searching through their baby books and came across the chart we made to keep track of their eating, sleeping, and diapering.
It's not that we were particularly, um, anal (no pun intended). It's just that we were not the only ones caring for our babies. Those first few weeks we had a revolving door of people including friends, family, neighbors, as well as a part-time nanny and even a night nurse on occasion.
It was important in those early days to keep track of what they were eating because, well, because that was the first question the pediatrician would ask in those weekly appointments!
This chart made it easier for us to keep track and keep the twins on the same schedule.
I know several of you are making fun of me,
