Eat, Sleep, Poop: The First 100 Days

Everyone makes a big deal out of “The First 100 Days” of a President’s term. Well, Isabel runs our house, kind of like the President runs the country, so this is equally important. RIGHT?!?

A few days after we returned from the hospital, we downloaded an app that allowed us to track Isabel’s essential functions – eating, sleeping, and pooping. We all know a baby’s early existence is consumed by these activities, so we consumed ourselves with them too.

A few things to note as not all baby’s are the same, so while this probably isn’t the average for all babies, I imagine it is probably pretty close:

  • Isabel turned out to be a great night sleeper and she was sleeping through the night (ie. ~ 7pm – 4am) by about 5 weeks. Her napping was much less predictable (until recently).
  • Isabel breastfed exclusively until Mrs. FWL returned to work two weeks ago. Few bottles were used in relation to the number of feedings.
  • As new parents, we probably changed her diaper more than necessary, but oh well, she had a clean butt.

Behold the first 100 days (more or less) of Isabel’s life as  told through her eating, sleeping, and pooping.

  1. Wow! That’s a lot of work for one blog post. (j/k). You have outdone yourself. And really everybody else. This is an impressive example of stat keeping. Hopefully it is of use to you somehow, because it is quite awesome.

  2. Thanks Dustin! The app did all the work, we just started and stopped some timers, I crunched a few numbers, and then added some pretty pictures (which was arguably the “hardest” part). Appreciate the support!
