Nitty Gritty with Trixie Tracker

Erika and I are both a little crazy when it comes to using our computers (and phones) for things. We don't have a phone book, maps, TV Guide, newspaper, paper books, or physical photos. We spend most of our time communicating through IM, Email, and social networking sites like Facebook or Myspace. About the only traditional media left in our lives are some magazine subscriptions I have -- It's a major pain to bring your laptop into the bathroom! Well, this addiction has bled into the lives of our babies. 

If you've had kids and breast fed you know all about counting the number of wet and poopy diapers to make sure they're eating enough. You also know about pumping and storing milk and trying to figure out how old that bag is you stuck in the fridge -- I mean, you can put a date on it but days are really a blur at this point. We didn't want to have to write all that stuff down, tally it up every day, or have to think  much about it. Yeah, we're lazy like that.

We use a web site called Trixie Tracker to monitor what's going on with our kids. We made part of it public so you can check it out if you want: Conley Chaos Nitty Gritty

So there you have it, how geeks keep up with counting diapers and milk inventory. It's great to be able to accurately, quickly, and definitively answer the question "Did we pump enough milk so we can get away for a day?" or "Did our kids have enough wet diapers yesterday?"
