Dear Diary

Following your development – and that of your baby – can be fun with this free booklet entitled, Health Diary: Myself, My Baby. Divided into two sections, the Myself section provides several pages for documenting your own health history, prenatal care, diet, weight gain and special memories of your pregnancy. Chock-full of information about labor and delivery, there’s even a pull-out chart illustrating your baby’s week-by-week development from birth to 24 months. You’ll find spaces for snapshots of your newborn, information about caring and feeding, and a schedule for taking your baby to the doctor. There’s also a section on treating minor problems, as well as spaces to record illnesses and notes following each doctor’s visit. Contact National Maternal and Child Health Clearinghouse, 2070 Chain Bridge Rd., Suite 450, Vienna, VA 22182; 888-434-4MCH, 703-356-1964.
