Getting Organized!

20130515-125718.jpg

What helped me to stay organized when I had my son (and a bad case if Mommy Brain) was a log book. We recorded whenever he ate, slept and dirty diapers. This made it easy to see patterns, know when he was hungry and anything else important. Plus, I just handed the book to the pediatrician so she could see for herself how he was doing.
Seeing how we are going to have four now, I didn’t want to try to fit them all on one page or keep four separate books. I searched on the Internet for log sheets, which were great, but why spend the money when I could make something myself? So that’s what I did.
They aren’t fancy, but they will be easy for all our caregivers to use and all the info is in one binder. The top page is a log sheet, then behind that is a medical record sheet where we can record baby measurements and notes from doctor visits. Then there’s a vaccination log so we can keep our own record. I also plan to put in a page that has our insurance information and maybe a card holder page to out their insurance cards in.
I figure this binder will probably evolve once the babies are home and our needs change, but at least we will have something to start with.
