When you have a newborn baby in the home there are a lot of things to keep track of. When my daughter was released from the hospital it was a bit overwhelming listening to the nurses instructions. We were told to be sure the baby nursed every three hours, that she had four poopy diapers a day, four wet diapers each day, and how long she is sleeping.
We were going through a lot of note pads trying to keep track of this information, so my son-in-law suggested we purchase a white board for recording all of this. Our local Target store had quite a few white boards from which to choose, but we didn’t want a real large size, so we ended up buying The Board Dudes Magnetic Dry-Erase Calendar.
This is a white board that measures eleven inches by fourteen inches, and it has a plastic frame around the edges, which are rounded so there are no sharp edges. The Board Dudes Magnetic Dry-Erase Calendar comes with two magnets for attaching notes to the surface, and there is a special black marker that connects easily to the bottom of the board. While this board did not come with dry erasers, they are sold separately. We found that we could easily erase the calendar with a tissue or paper towel.
The Board Dudes Magnetic Dry-Erase Calendar looks like a blank calendar, with a place to write the month at the top, and marking the dates with the black marker in small gray colored dots in the upper right hand corner of each square.
This board is intended to mount onto a magnetic surface, such as a refrigerator. It comes with “Mounting Hardware”, which consists of magnets, but we mounted it onto a side wall using 3M mounting strips. This board would be a nice tool to have on a wall next to a desk, computer, or work station.
Since we have been using The Board Dudes Magnetic Dry-Erase Calendar, it has been very easy to keep our newborn baby on schedule. We are no longer asking each other “when was the last time you fed her?” When we need to know, we simply check the white board and feel much better not having to guess about important things like feedings and nap times.
The Board Dudes, Ben and Mike, have several different styles from which to choose, so there is something for everyone. They make a variety of dry erase boards, combo dry erase and cork boards, or just cork boards. We are very happy with our choice, and it cost us less than ten dollars. It is my pleasure to recommend The Board Dudes Magnetic Dry-Erase Calendar.
