Tips on Using this Free Printable Baby Care Log
This daily baby care log is easy to use for all your baby tracking needs. Just print out multiple copies on your home printer as this was designed for regular letter-sized paper. You can also print front and back if you don’t feel the need to write more notes on the back side. For those with small handwriting, you can even consider reducing the size and printing 2 copies per page.
Make Your Own Baby Care Logbook
Printing your daily pages at home gives you the most flexibility to reprint and add pages as you go. All you need is a binder or clipboard to keep all your log pages together. However, the easiest way to make your own baby care logbook is to send this free printable baby care log PDF to your local print shop. They can print enough daily pages for months and bind it together into a logbook.
However, if you prefer the DIY method, just print copies at home and put them into a binder for safekeeping. You can keep the binder open on your kitchen counter or desk and make sure to log all the details as you go, day-by-day.
Another alternative is to use this download in your digital planning apps. Nowadays many of us take notes and plan on our digital tablets. You can use this baby care log as a template and track details digitally on your tablet, creating another copy for each day.
It’s definitely easy to save data digitally and have it always on hand in your tablet. You’ll never run out of pages or space to take notes, so this is a great option for those who are comfortable with digital planning and logging.
Write down all the details.
Finally, remember to write down any and all details as you go through your day. Usually most baby care trackers including date, time, feedings, diaper change, and sleep. However, you can track more information in the other column as needed.
Every baby and family has unique needs and situations, so always track what makes sense for your particular needs. Perhaps you want to track allergies, medicines or when you use certain oils or creams. Or perhaps there are other behavioral notes that you want to track for your baby. Just write it all down in this log. I’m certain you will never regret writing down more information than necessary.
Some parents actually use the backside of these daily tracker sheets as a dear diary type of section. They journal about the day with their baby for memory keeping purposes. So it’s up to you to decide if you want to print this tracker on the front and back of pages or leave the back sides blank for additional writing and tracking.
Besides tracking the time and pertinent details on each row and column of the tracker. Note there is space at the bottom for tracking totals and more thoughts and notes, pertinent to feeding, diaper changes, and sleep. Taking a few minutes to review this information on a daily or weekly basis will help you learn more about your baby’s routines.
