You should keep a record of all of their immunizations. Keep a record of any diseases they contract, and hospital visits. Keep record of medications, especially adverse reactions.

The medical journal should include height/weight/age at regular intervals as well as a detailed record of the times when they are ill. Include any medications given, doctors visits, symptoms appearing, disappearing, or improving.

It is necessary to keep proper records. You must know what to record. Such records will always be useful for treatment in future especially in context of adverse reactions, incompatibilities and case history
