Free Printable: Newborn Twins Schedule

Two Little Misters - Newborn Twins

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.

    Oh wow that is amazing – very clever! I remember it being hard enough to keep track of this sort of thing for one baby let alone two.

      Thank you! Yes I wish I’d come up with it before I had my two, we were always scribbling on bits of paper and losing track!

    […] Twins are more likely to be born with low birth weights than singleton babies and you may worry about weight gain. Also it’s easy to lose track of each baby’s output as you beginning a seemingly never-ending cycle of change, feed, sleep. We found it useful to keep notes on the feeds Douglas and Arthur took, for our own record as well as to show health visitors etc. I designed a free printable perfect for this, you can download it here!
