I’ve been having a lot of trouble keeping track of the twins feeding schedule. Especially at night. I’ll hear them cry out and wake in a state of panic, disoriented and wondering if I’ve just fed the one that is crying or was it the other one? Sometimes it’s just gas! Also,
- I want to make sure I’m feeding equally from each breast.
- I want to make sure that each kid is switching sides regularly in case production is uneven.
- I want to stretch Aaron’s feeds to 2 and 1/2 to 3 hours each. He has a tendency to feed for a small amount of time and often, which makes him gassy and cranky.
- I want to keep track of Sam’s formula top ups. After putting Sam on the breast I will give him 2 ounces of formula is I feel he is still fussy.
I’ve been trying out two different applications. The first one was an app for $.99 called iBaby Feed. I like how easy it is to track feeds, either entering it manually or simply just starting a timer when you start feeding. You can also analyze the feeds based on average feed length, time between feeds, and total feed time. However, it doesn’t take into account two kids.
So I downloaded the very expensive (for an iphone app) Baby Connect. At $4.99 you can do it all. Keep track of feeds, log in diaper changes, sleep, mood, activities, medical records and much more. Most importantly, it keeps track of more than one baby. It’s the mack daddy of record keepers for your infant. I don’t have the time or interest to track the babies every movement, but for a first time type A mother, or perhaps a nanny this package would be great.Pin It
