Keeping track of poo
Do you keep a written record of your baby's sleeps, feeds and poos?
We asked our Facebook fans if they kept a written record of their baby's sleeps, feeds and poos? Here's what they had to say:

With my son I did he has a rare brain disorder and wasn't eating well so we had to document every feed ml etc to see how much he was eating. - Sharlene Collins

When my daughter stayed with her nanny as a baby we had a "nanny diary" where Nanny recorded all these kind of things. Made life easier for Mommy when taking over in the evenings. - Sankie Botha Oosthuizen

No. Why must I do it? - Dieketseng Dk Loretta Ramosoeu

Dieketseng, don't worry, no need to do it, some people just do. I was way too lazy, lol. Your baby is really so cute!! - Lize Nel

For about a week. Then I realised that I would fill about 40 notebooks before he was 2 months old and I stopped wasting my time. As long as they drink, gain weight and poops - who cares? - Leanda Van Der Westhuizen

I have a note book where the nanny records meals, nap times and nappy changes. I check the book every day when I get home from work.- Terri-Lee Leslie Steytler

No never - Debbie Bowley Haylett

Of course! then instructed my nanny to do so when I had to go back to work. That was with my first born. Eight years later, with my second born, excuse me? What? You must be joking. - Sharon Sorour-Morris

The first few weeks I kept a record of their feeding times! I was so sleep deprived I couldn't remember what I did 5 minutes ago! - Caroline Moolman
