Today I am giving you everything you need in your family binder for your children (including babies). Plus, you’ll be receiving two babysitting forms (one for older children and one for babies), a baby milestone tracker, and a daycare information sheet (to keep at home in your binder). In addition, for all of you Moms-to-Be, I will be giving you a free printable checklist to pack in your hospital bag for when your baby arrives. After you get home from the hospital, you can slip this into your binder so that you have your baby’s stats on hand.
So let’s take a look at the forms you can download for FREE today. I am sure you won’t be surprised to see that they coordinate with the other inserts available for you binder. The longer you hang around here, the more you’ll see much I like things to coordinate.
The files are available in Letter Size (also Big Happy Planner size), A5, and Classic Happy Planner. If you want to print them out for a mini planner, try printing the A5 size at 79% (adjust if needed).
The Best Part About this Week’s Inserts
This week’s inserts are all (minus the hospital form) available to print and fill-in or type directly into. The PDFs can all be customized on your computer before your print them. This will save you so much time for your babysitting forms. It will also make it easy to update your Emergency and other forms later as long as you save the file on your computer. (Or send it to yourself in an e-mail for safe-keeping!) I like to type where I can because my handwriting is so poor (you should see my pathetic handwriting in my planner. I’m working on that though with this gift from my husband).
Emergency Contact Form
Whether or not you have children, it’s important to make sure you have Emergency Information readily available. It’s one of those boring adult things that you don’t want to do but totally should. I can tell you after dealing with a choking baby, the last thing you want to be doing is scrambling for information during an emergency. This should be the FIRST page in your family binder. It is of utmost importance. Also, it will become a tool for your children as they get older and stay home alone. Additionally, your babysitter may not be able to reach you during your night out because you accidentally left your phone on silent (again). While we all hope there is no need for an Emergency Information page, it’s better to be prepared (plus, I feel like if you have it, it’s less likely to be used. I always have a weird theory about being prepared because things are less likely to happen).
Hospital Checklist and Information Form
I made this form with my pregnant sister in mind.I was trying to think of what I needed to tell her about her what she needs to do after she has the baby. There is always so much information leading up to the big event, but everyone seems to forget to fill you in on the requirements after you have the baby (other than the obvious things like changing the baby’s diaper). Now, it may seem silly to write down some of this (like your baby’s birth date). But I am going to tell you, you’ll be so tired you won’t be able to think straight. Having this form ensure you will provide people with the correct baby stats and will also remind you of the tasks you need to complete.
For my example forms today, I created an imaginary character, named Rory. You see, Rory had a surprise pregnancy last year and wanted a way to keep track of her little one. Her story may or may not sound familiar to some of you. I may or may not have been inspired by my guest post over on A Literary Feast (Friday Night Dinner – Secrets and Loans). If you love Gilmore Girls, you don’t want to miss Grace’s post about meeting Kelly Bishop. I have to warn you, you’re going to be very jealous.
Baby Milestone and Stats Tracker
One of the other things you’ll need to do after you have a baby is keep track of their milestones. While you’ll want to transfer these into a perfectly pretty baby book, you’ll also need the information for your doctor. When your kid rolls over the first time, you’ll be knee deep in laundry, covered in milk stains, and will have no interest in digging out your baby book at a moments notice. This page will help you record your baby’s milestones so that you can share them with the doctor (just pop the page out and take it with you and you can write down their weight, height, and other notes while at the appointment). Even better, is by keeping a draft version of your milestones, you can transfer the information neatly into their baby book after the fact (this one is likely to get spit up or coffee on it anyhow).
My poor parents and in-laws. I am not going to lie, when I left my children in their early years, I left them a book. I wrote down every single detail that I thought they *might* need. Well, I have since found a way to simplify my notes. Today, you will get three baby sitting forms. One form for babysitting a baby, one for babysitting older kids, and an additional page for those of you with more than 4 children or in need of an extra note page (I would have probably printed three or more of these in the beginning).
Again, I had a little fun creating a fake form for Rory and her son. Don’t you think Rory would refer to Luke as the baby’s grandfather? I almost put step-grandfather but thought knowing Rory, she’d just put Grandpa.
Daycare Information Form
This form is meant for parents who have children in daycare. I will be providing inserts for school at a later time. Sometimes it can be hard to remember the little details you learn (such as the other kid’s names or even harder, their parents’ names). Also, there may be times that someone else needs to take your kid to daycare (like Grandma). This form will give you a quick overview of everything you need to remember about daycare. If you’re a daycare provider, this would be great to send home to parents will some of the information already typed in (you can print multiple copies after you fill in the PDF).
The set includes:
- emergency information
- babysitting informational sheet (older children)
- babysitting informational sheet (baby)
- babysitting additional info
- daycare family binder insert
- baby milestone tracker
- hospital paperwork checklist for after you have the baby
Notes on Using the Parent Starter Set Printables
- They come in Letter size, A5, and Classic Happy Planner. For the mini, print the A5’s at 79%.
- If you print the letter size, I suggest getting a 1 or 1 1/2 inch binder.
- The style for the printables will remain the same: simple and black and white (except for the covers). I don’t want you to use up all of your ink trying to print out these printables, Also, just because I love pink, doesn’t mean you all would have wanted pink organizers.
- Print the babysitter sheets each time you need them OR laminate them and use a dry erase marker.
- Colors may vary. Printers print differently depending on many factors. (The printer I use is a more expensive unit that uses pigment ink).
- Print on cardstock for added durability. (this is my favorite from Amazon)
