My daughter is 8 months old, and I still write down every diaper, every bottle, and any other food she eats. If any other moms also kept track, how old was your child when you stopped?

Honestly, I never did.  Not with any of my five.

I am very anal and I matter of fact. If I'm asked a question about her diapers or bowel movements, I want to be able to give an exact answer. I know not everyone does that. But it keeps me sane.

Hey, whatever works.

I can usually answer from memory. :)

I stopped after I came home from the hospital.  However, daycare keeps track of everything for us and I've been saving the daily reports.

I never did that, even as infants. I can pretty much just remember about frequency and foods, and we've never had a problem with anything that would need exacting details.

With my first two I never kept track. With my third I stopped as soon as I was released from the hospital. I just never saw the point (not that it's wrong to do or anything-just wasn't for me).

In the beginning I just kept track of diapers.  I breastfeed and wanted to make sure he was getting enough.  If I started to question my supply...I just went back to the diapers.

I never did that. I can just tell if it seems off and know from memory.
