My baby is still cooking (40 weeks, 2 days) so I'm using this time to clean, prepare and be productive as I try to avoid boredom and anxiety. It's not easy!
When I was in college, part of my studies included working in the Child Development Labs - pretty much a dream day care center for infants to kindergarteners. We had to track the feedings, diaper changes and bowel movements of each baby to communicate with the rotating student teachers and to the parent(s) at the end of the day.
I've been thinking that this kind of chart might be helpful for Abe and me. I know from experience with our dog that we're pretty good about talkin' the poop, but it's easy to lose track of time/schedule when we're both running around during the day. I'm sure there's an iPhone app we could share, but I usually find a piece of paper to be way easier to update and read.
All of this to say that I've created a *cute* baby diaper change chart (cute is crucial when we're talking b.m.'s) that you can download and print out at home. It's a PDF and should open in your browser if you click here, or right click on the link and Save As to your desktop.
And if you have trouble describing what you see in the diaper, here is a visual guide from Baby Center.
