When your baby was all shiny and new we're sure that you had times where you couldn't remember what time you'd last changed their diaper, given them a bottle or put them down for a nap. There's so much to remember that it happens to the best of us!
So when it comes to introducing solids, you'll be trying so many different foods it's understandable that you might also forget what your little one had eaten, how much had actually gone in (and not on the floor), and whether they'd liked it.
As busy working Moms ourselves, we know how overwhelming this can be, and that's when we're lucky enough to be getting a bit more sleep!
To combat this, we kept scrappy notes that we quickly lost or that got covered in mushed up broccoli. We also tried various apps on our phones to help us track patterns, but inevitably found that this led to getting easily distracted on social media instead of actually making the notes.
As advocates of 'no-tech' at the dinner table, we found that this began contradicting our values for family mealtimes. Enter the tiddler weaning tracker, from tiddlers & nippers. Born out of exactly the same experience, tiddlers & nippers journals started by trying to keep some order following the arrival of a new baby. The inventors couldn’t find a physical product that combined functional format and good design to do the job, so they came up with their own range of baby and toddler tracking journals.
In a world where technology is beginning to take over every aspect of our lives, there is a resurgence of making notes and appreciating stationery. Journaling is very on trend at the moment as a way to bring structure and routine, as well as to record and keep special memories that we might otherwise forget. The tiddler weaning tracker does just this. Keeping a journal of baby’s transition from milk to solids, with space for logging each new taste and reaction, as well as sleeping pattern, feeding routine, and nappy changing frequency helps to bring order to the chaos that can sometimes ensue with babies and toddlers!
We think this idea is a great partner to our baby utensils and baby bowl as part of your weaning toolkit, allowing you to keep a handy record of what your little one eats, likes, dislikes and also any changes in sleeping pattern or fluid intake.
