I can only assume it was because I was deep, deep into new baby la-la land that I didn’t come up with this idea myself – it is so simple and so practical that I can hear thousands of mums joining in the “Why didn’t I think of that?” chorus.
Lullaboards are a dry-erase system for recording your baby’s day. New mothers like to keep track of feeds, sleeps and the all-important number of poos they have changed. Why do we keep a record of such things? Probably because we are so blindingly tired that if we didn’t write it down we wouldn’t know our left from our right, amongst other things. I know I liked to keep records so that I had a decent account of my achievements for the day, given that I usually hadn’t managed a shower by noon and my house looked like a tip… at least my baby had done three poops.
There are lots of colours and designs to choose from but most importantly different layouts are available – there’s one for newborns who are breastfed, one for those that are bottle fed, one for mums who hit the jackpot and are breastfeeding, bottle feeding and expressing, and there are also formats for older babies and toddlers.
Lullaboards are US$25 each and can be shipped to Australia.
