When we arrived home from the hospital after 12 days in the NICU, it’s fair to say we were shattered. Thrilled to be home of course, but very, very tired. The boys were still small (Douglas was 4lb 8oz and Arthur 4lb 12oz). Also, Douglas was still jaundiced, so keeping track of the boys’ feeds was really important. We aimed to feed on a three-hourly schedule as we had done in hospital. Measuring feeds carefully according to their weight, we then recorded what they took each time. We used a notebook but it was all a bit unclear, and keeping track of who’d done what and when was hard to keep up with!
So, if you’ve got twins on board or currently have newborns, I’ve made it all a bit easier for you by designing this free printable.
Here you can track the babies’ feeds (whether breast, bottle or both!), nappy changes and sleep times. Theres also a handy space for notes at the bottom, you might like to use this for any medication administered.
