I usually ask parents to write down a baby's daily routine and then we discuss it frequently because things change so rapidly during the first few months.

You could always make your own up based on the information you want to know.

I've done exactly as Miffy suggests. I ask all parents of younger children (usually less than 18 months) to fill in a Baby Care Plan. It details things such as feeding times, sleep times, comforting words, etc and I re-send them every 6-8 weeks depending on the child for updates.

Hope this helps x

I like the name - Baby Care Plan - now that does sound very professional - might have to pinch that!

I have a sheet, which covers all ages, and I just ask parents to fill in what's relevant for their child.

Has likes/dislikes, food, eating times, sleep times, how often nappy changed, where they like to sleep, with anything, what their like when they wake, can they go to toilet by themselves, do up shoes, zips etc.

If you pm me your email, I'll send it to you. I got it from a website. Can't remember which one - prob Bromley!! :thumbsup:
