Newborn Feeding Chart – Mark 1


A picture of the feeding chart.

With the arrival of Maxwell, we’ve been attempting to keep track of his feedings. This involves keeping track of the start and end times of his feeds, the type of feeds, and his, shall we say, “outputs”. We’ve been doing mixed-feeding (breast and formula) which we plan to charge over to breast only. For now, his formula feeds are coming from a small tube that attaches to a bottle which I tape to my finger and with which I feed him.

I based this chart on the original chart that was given to us at St. Thomas’ Hospital, which was functional but not entirely satisfactory. The first and most obvious improvement to me was to change it to landscape mode from portrait, which gave us a lot more room.
