Q: How did Baby’s Log come about?
A: After the birth of my first child, I created Baby’s Log for our nanny to use. Many nannies are asked to record the baby’s daily care and
events in a notebook. Similarly, many daycare providers give a log sheet to parents at the end of the day.
To make things easier for our nanny and to be certain specific information would be recorded, I created Baby’s Log, a simple log sheet for her to
complete each day.
We used a corner countertop location in the kitchen to keep Baby’s Log (stored in a 3-ring binder) as well as a wall calendar and all emergency information.
When my husband and I came home from work, we reviewed Baby’s Log. This was a quick way to “download” the day’s information and a great tool to
further discuss any issues with our nanny. It worked so well that friends and family asked for copies…one after another, after another.
Finally, my husband said, “You should post it online and share it that way…it’s a lot easier than faxing it.” He’s right!
