Total he has had 7 wet and 3 dirty. He is 5 days old today....how are we doing?? Is he getting enough to eat? am I doing alright (I feed on demand rather than schedule) and is he making enough diapers? Please keep in mind there are still 4 and a half hours left of the day left.
EDIT: I didn't realize that they didn't ask all new moms to do this....but if it's not really necessary, I think i'm just going to could diapers....the whole timing and charting of which breast, when and how long was getting irritating already.
There is NO REASON to time feedings! Let baby stay on for as long as baby needs and then offer the other side. Repeat if necessary. Honestly keeping these records often only serves as a step toward weaning. Docs ARE NOT trained in BFing. Speak to an IBCLC if you need to. What is going on? Dirty diapers count as two. Anything soaked (more than 4 tablespoons) equals 2.
