Daily Log For Baby

This is where you’ll keep track of your baby’s daily growth, health and development.



Date and time of day. For example, “Friday, June 1, 2001.” If you have a calendar with the days of the week (or months) written on it and are able to read that information off of it without any difficulty, then you may choose to write “Fri.” instead of writing out “Friday” or even better: “6/1/01” (noting that you can’t include a slash between the month and day). You can also just write out your date for extra clarity: “January 10th.” However, if this is confusing for you or if your handwriting is illegible because of visual impairments or other factors such as being from another country where months aren’t even written in numbers like ours but rather by their names (for example January would be written as “January” rather than “1st”), then it is perfectly fine to use numerals in place of words whenever possible!

You will want to record both AM and PM times on your logbook so that when someone asks what time something happened they will know whether they need AM or PM times.


You can use a watch, but if you don’t have one, don’t worry—you can use the clock on your phone. Or better yet: set a timer for 10 minutes and do whatever needs to be done during that time. You’ll find that most tasks take less than 15 minutes anyway, so it’s really not much work at all!

If you prefer something more official-looking and reliable than a timer app (which could glitch up at any moment), buy an alarm clock or calendar with an hourly schedule printed on it as well. As long as they’re reliable mechanisms of timekeeping and not just technology in general, they’ll do great!


Weight is an important factor in assessing baby’s health, but it’s also very easy for it to get out of hand. For example:

  • If you’re feeding your child a healthy diet and he/she is active (and thus burning more calories than he/she consumes), then you won’t need to worry about his weight.
  • If your child has a low activity level or you’re feeding him/her junk food all the time, then make sure he gets plenty of exercise and doesn’t eat too much candy or cakes!

The most important thing here is that if you see something that seems off—like your baby gaining lots of weight quickly—then talk with your pediatrician immediately! It could be nothing serious at all; but it could also be a sign of something more serious like obesity or diabetes later on down the road.


This is a very important measure because height is often one of the first things that people notice about a person. Height is also an indicator of overall health, as well as growth potential.

A baby’s height can be measured at three different ages: 18 months old, 2 years old and 3 years old. The measurements are taken in inches, not centimeters (which would be converted using a conversion factor).

Baby’s mood

You can best assess your baby’s mood by observing their behavior.

  • Is your baby resting quietly? Or is he crying and fussing? If a baby is fussy, it could be because of a number of factors.
  • Does the baby appear to have an upset stomach or need to urinate? A hungry or wet diaper could also be causing him distress. It’s important to not only take care of these needs but also change his environment so that he can feel less stressed and more comfortable (for example, by changing his diaper).
  • Also consider what kind of day you’ve been having together—you’ve been going through major transitions like introducing solids into his diet and moving out of your room into a bigger one with lots more toys and stimulation around him! This may mean that you need some extra time together before bed so that you’re both ready for bedtime rituals later on in the evening (and hopefully sleeping well throughout).

Feeding times and amounts

  • Feeding times and amounts
  • Frequency of feeding
  • Amount your baby drinks at each feeding
  • Type of formula or breast milk you feed your baby.

Diaper changes and frequency of wetting or dirtying diaper

To prevent diaper rash, you should change your baby’s diaper whenever she is wet or dirty. Look for the following signs that indicate your baby needs a change:

  • You can see a wet spot on her clothing or on the front of her diaper and/or smell urine.
  • There are bowel movements in the diaper (poop). The stool is usually soft, yellow and seedy. It will be smeared around if it has been sitting in the diaper too long without being changed.
  • The area around your baby’s belly button looks red and irritated—this could be a sign of infection or irritation due to moisture trapped between her skin and the soiled diapers.

To change your baby’s diaper:

  • Get some clean cloths ready by soaking them in warm water with soap Or use wipes designed for cleaning up messes like this one: http://www2wcodeedcom/iignite-baby-wipes__155822#WOI8Yvf5hS0tQ5oHWZkzcLg==!

Reminders of events, such as doctor appointments or play groups

Reminders of events, such as doctor appointments or play groups

  • Create a list of important dates and activities for each month. You can do this by keeping track of the dates in your calendar, or even on a separate piece of paper. Make sure you have a calendar where you can keep track of all your appointments! If you are not sure what to write, ask your doctor at the next appointment what is coming up next.

This is important to keep track of.

This is important to keep track of. If you don’t know your baby’s height, it can be hard to tell when they might start walking. The same goes for how much they weigh and how long their legs are.

Keeping a record of these things will help make sure that your child grows as healthy as possible, so it’s a good idea to keep track even if you think you already know everything about them!

If you forget what day something happened on or need more space on one page than there is left in the logbook (which happens often), just use another blank sheet of paper and write down what happened before continuing with the next entry on your current page.


Taking care of your baby is a big responsibility, but it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. By keeping track of the daily details in this log, you’ll be able to see how much progress little Johnny or Jane makes as he or she grows up.
