BF-ing and diaper chart...how are we doing?
DS's pedi wants me to keep a chart of feedings and diapers for the next two weeks. Here is what we've done so far today...how are we doing? (the "day" starts at midnight)
2:06A, Left-8min, Right-6min
5:25A Left-35min (we fell asleep), Right-none, Wet-2 (1 soked diaper), Dirty-1
7:25A Left-none, Right-10min
9:45A Left-10min, Right-10min, Wet-1
11:45A Left-10min, Right-10min, Wet-1
2:55P Left-10min, Right-10min, Wet-1
6:30P Left-10min, Right-7min, Wet-1, Dirty-1
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.
Thank you ladies.
