I have seen daily report sheets from daycares but didn't pay much attention to what was on them. I have a babysitter in my home and would like to use something like that to give me a better sense of how much/when DS eats and sleeps. I would also like for my babysitter to keep a better routine with him (7 months old, I don't want him kept to clock schedule but sometimes I think the sitter could do a better job of encouraging a rhythm).

I'm wondering what goes on your child's daily report sheet aside from eating/sleeping times and if anyone currently does this at home. I was thinking a white board on the fridge, but I would like it to look like a form to help encourage the rhythm part if that makes sense.

Thanks!

Ours does eating and nap time of course. They also go into nice detail about eating-i.e. will note if he ate a little, ate a lot, or ate nothing which I appreciate. They also let me know if he was really wild about a particular food because they know we are struggling with his weight.

They also include the activities they did, and what activity he really enjoyed.

Finally they do include any issues-was he weepy, was he sad, was he bouncing off the walls.

We don't get them anymore, because my daughter is almost 2, but here's the information that was on ours.

Naps:
-how many, what time and for how long

Feedings:
-specific times and amounts for each bottle (i.e. 4 oz at 10:30)
-once she was on solids, what she ate and and at what time (and they often noted if there was something she didn't like)

Diaper changing:
-nothing about wet diapers, but they made a note for a poopy diaper and if there was more than one

Supplies they needed from home.

Ours has:

Diapers (wets and poops) and indicates change times.
Food -- how much and also if he really enjoyed something (or did not).
Naps -- how long and times
Activities enjoyed -- they have a daily lesson plan posted but they would write down details like "Loved reading about horses" or "Had a lot of fun chasing bubbles", etc.

Of course, they would also write if there was anything that did not go so well. For example, hitting, biting, etc.

-what the daily activities are and how DD did (cooperative, engaged, uniterested, etc)
-whether she ate all, some, or none of her food.
-how she did during naptime (slept, laid quietly, or was disruptive)
-overall mood for the day
-any issues for the parents to be aware of

She got her first "negative" report today. Apparently, she said "shit" several times. She's 22 months.

The above plus:

Diapers:
Wet or Bowel Movement and what time diapers were changed

Then an area to comment on her mood that day with stuff like: normal, happy, sad, some others I forget

And then an area for notes where they will write if more diapers are needed or if something unusual happened that day.

OuR friends had this, but worse..F$@k...out of the mouth of their toddler. It took months of "no honey, it's TRuck, Tuuuurrrruck" to fix it. Now he says "oh truck!" when he drops his toys. Still not great, but better! May I suggest shift for your little one? Or maybe "she hit"?

OP- we have two columns in a spiral. Left side feedings with times, right side naps. I like it because it is easy to compare days, and I am not a diaper tracker.
