Daily Log

This log is meant to help you keep track of how often the baby is nursing and how many wet and soiled diapers there are each day.   This is a good way for you to know that he is getting enough breastmilk, because what goes in…comes out.

DIRECTIONS:

Circle the hour when your baby nurses (Goal: 8-12 times in a 24 hour period)
Circle the W when your baby has a wet diaper
Circle the S when your baby has a soiled diaper
During the first week, you will use more diapers each day.
