Easily getting a child with RTM and survive the first months

With a newborn child, your live is changing a lot. Nothing is like it is after the birth and you have a lot of things to take into consideration. But with RTM all the tasks are in one place and easy to manage (Hyperlinks, Packing Lists, Furnishing of the children room, Questions to the midwife and so on).

And with just a smile of your child, all the effort is forgotten and you are proud like nobody else.

My wife and I each have an RTM account and so we created a separate List named Leonie (the name of our child) and shared this list to each other.

First of all, we created a task without due date named “Childrens room”. In it, we put all the ToDos for furnishing the room separated in Subtasks like painting the room, construction children bed, construction heating lamp, buying trash bin and so on.

After that, we created a task without a due date named “Important Links”. In it, we collect all the important links separated in Subtasks without a due date like help against suffocation, perfect room climate, child doctor, child hospitals nearby, formalities, Developments of the child and so on. Since then, nothing is forgotten anymore.

We created another task without due date named “Packing list” and put into it all the things as subtasks without due date for the hospital.

After the birth, we created a task without due date for the “Questions to the midwife”. In it, we collected all the questions through subtasks we had. As due date we chose each day, the midwife visited us.

A very important task was the “Breastfeeding time” task without a due date. Every breastfeeding time, we added a note with the duration and side of the breast. So we could take control about the behaviour and when it is time for the next breastfeeding.

Last but not least we added a final task without a due date for all the gifts. Every time we got a present, we added a subtask without due date with the Donators name and kind of present in it, so we could remember. After that, we created thanksgiving cards and could easily send it with kind of present to all our friends and family. We could complete task by task until all the Donators got its cards.

You see, RTM can help a lot by getting a child. Thank you for existing RTM!
