As new moms we tend to neglect our own self-care as our main focus becomes our newest addition(s). Duo Diary allows you a space for self-care at a time when you are likely to neglect it, but also at a time when you need it the most.
A Duo Diary is a portable journal that allows you to monitor your postpartum health and wellness while you care for your new baby. Track all of your baby's feedings including breastfeeding, bottle, formula, and pumping; monitor behaviors, patterns, sleep, diapers, and more on one side. On the other side, care for yourself with a food journal; track water intake, sleep, and exercise, plus keep notes on how you are feeling mentally and physically postpartum.
Studies have shown that the act of writing down is important in helping us process information, something that doesn't happen as well without the physical act of writing. The notes space can be used in so many helpful ways- jot down behaviors or patterns your baby is displaying, discover food sensitivities much faster, jot down emotions or any physical pain or issues you are noticing in yourself, keep track of questions for the pediatrician or OB, leave instructions for a sitter - the possibilities are endless.
