Breastfeeding Chart *printable*

Those first few days are hard… Breastfeeding doesn’t come easy to everyone (it didn’t for me), and to remember what’s going on when you’re exhausted is hard work! Before Addie was born, I made a chart and kept a pen clipped to it. By having this chart, I knew what was what those first few days, and I didn’t have to remember to move a bracelet, click a button or rely on my memory for which side she’d nursed from before. I am packing the same list for Millie’s arrival in just a few weeks!

While breastfeeding isn’t easy for everyone, making it as easy as possible is as simple as being prepared!

  2. This would have been helpful for me back in the 90’s when I breastfed my babies. One product I really like nowadays is the rubber band type bracelet that you switch from one wrist to the other to remind yourself which breast you left off with.

  4. This is a great chart. When you first begin breast feeding, it’s important to keep track of the baby’s progress.

  5. When my sister was breastfeeding, she basically flew by the seat of her pants. It would’ve been nice for her to have this.

    That is a great chart! I certainly would have used that when my kids were younger.

  12. This would have been great when I was breastfeeding. I had lots of scraps of paper sitting around with my times on it. This would have been much better.

  15. I remember those days at the beginning. We are 8 months in now, so she pretty much feeds every 3 hours or so. This is a great printable.

    I’m trying to conceive, and hopefully I’ll test positive soon. This chart will be handy … in 9 months, I hope!! :)

  17. Oh totally could have used this chart when I breastfed all my kids the first 6 weeks. I struggled so much trying to figure out which breast they fed on, how much they drank…gosh…not fun times for me.
