Diary Keeping

I keep a diary of all of T's food and milk intake. Partly because this pleases my anaesthetic sense of record keeping while I am on maternity leave, secondly because it allows me to spot patterns in T's habits. 

My Dairy diary! 

It's recommended that the minimum milk intake from 6 months is 600ml (1 pint) every day. Some days T doesn't quite manage that amount, so I know I can top him up with extra milk substitute formula in porridge, rice pudding or pasta and creamy tomato sauce

See my other ideas for getting more milk into your baby,  (to follow!)

If your baby is consistently taking less than 300mls daily, contact your Dietician for further advice.
