If you don't have it on your registry yet, I highly recommend the itzbeen timer. I didn't have this with DD1. We would just write down when we fed her or changed her. With this timer, I don't have to do that. It lets me keep track of four different activities - diaper changes, feedings, sleep, and an activity of my choice (I use it to keep track of when I take my meds). It's so nice to be able to look at it and know how long it has been since the last feeding or diaper change. Definitely handy when you are sleep deprived and don't remember anything.
Also, anyone who has an iPhone there is an App called Total Baby and it does all of those great things too. The App was cheap (if not free can't remember) but lets you keep up with diaper changes, feeding, naps, baths, and you can add your own categories too. It also has a section for a diary, milestones, and doctor reminders. Just thought I would let you girls, I can't wait to use it!!!
