Breastfeeding Log

Keep a breastfeeding log the first week with your new baby. The log should contain the following information: at what time the baby nursed, how long they nursed for, and which breast they were on. With the lack of sleep new mothers will experience, a breastfeeding log will help you get in the routine of nursing and also ensure that the baby develops a good nursing schedule and habit. Most hospitals and midwives will provide a sample one for you, but if not, make sure to ask for one or at least a sample you can refer to.
