I’m the type of person who LOVES to write things down. Anything really; a to-do list, a journal entry, a note, I just love writing. Physically writing things down. There’s just something therapeutic about it. I’ve kept a journal literally since I was 5 years old. Obviously life has slowed me down with journaling the last couple of years, but I do my best to make that special time for myself.
I still love to look back at my Grandma’s journals and read about her life, her stories and her experiences. I hope that one day I can bring someone joy from my journals as they look back and read up on my life.
I recently came across Duo Diary. Literally, the best invention ever for us writing lovers. I can’t tell you how sad it makes me that I didn’t have this little journal when Blake was first born. It’s the ultimate tracking guide. A Duo Diary allows you to care for yourself, while you care for your baby. Based on the idea of baby feeding logs, a Duo Diary allows you to track all of your baby’s health on one side, and your health on the other. It’s simple – on the baby’s side, track feedings -including breastfeeding, bottle, formula, and pumping; monitor behaviors, patterns, sleep, diapers, jot notes for the doctor or sitter, and more. On the caregiver/mom’s side, care for yourself with a food journal, plus track water intake, sleep, and exercise. You can also keep notes on how you are feeling mentally and physically postpartum. It’s an easy and effective way to remember your own health during a time when your focus is primarily on the wellbeing of your baby. Plus, the notes are also a great place to write down special moments, little things you want to remember from that day.
It’s like the ultimate giant journal. You better believe I WILL use one for future babies. Personally I think it’s a great place to write you’re feelings in between feelings, a little book where you can share personal thoughts and love letters for your babe to look back at one day.
