Printable Infant Care Chart

As a new mom, I felt completely overwhelmed until I created an infant care chart. I used one on my own to help me get to know my baby, establish a routine, and identify any concerns. Then I was able to pass my infant care chart along to my full-time babysitter so that she could help me keep track of my daughter's schedule and development. We used the infant care chart to document the baby's feedings, diaper changes, naps, and (before she started crawling) tummy time, and we only just gave up using it when she turned nine months old. (And, to be honest, I miss it sometimes!)

Here's a copy of our chart so that you can use it or adapt it for your own needs.
