Please know, a 4x6 picture fills up most of a page, so there isn't a lot of room for pictures. I am using this book in conjunction with a photo keepsake book. Also, you should be aware that about half of the journal covers month 0-24 and the other half is for jotting down "firsts" and the songs you sing, books you read together, drawings, and other inspiring things.
This journal is perfect for that - with plenty of space to write both milestones as well as anything else you wish to record. I am using only one for both of my children (ages 1 and 2). There is plenty of room for both.
I bought this one for a friend, as I love mine so much. Highly recommended!
Overall, I enjoyed the illustrations and the small size of this journal.
Although I did like to use the book, I was not entirely happy with it from a practical standpoint.
I am an avid journal keeper and overall enjoyed using this book but if I were to do it again, I may choose a different journal.
* Poor layout
I would have liked more space for specific baby's firsts (teeth, walking, etc.) and less space crowded by illustrations.
I am not saying that I do not like the illustrations, they just seemed to be poorly laid out and often crowded my space to write, especially on the month by month pages.
Pages that were open for one to write anything they wanted were often crowded with random words or illustrations in the middle of the page.
I would have preferred no words and illustrations in the corners so I had space to write and place small photos or momentos.
* Poor organization
The flow of the book is a bit strange... a lot of pages with illustrations and random cute words on the page.
I think it would be better to have the month by month and then pages for baby's firsts, visitors, etc.
I would recommend this book for someone who does not want to write a great deal. A large open space is intimidating to some people.
This would work well for someone who probably will not write a whole lot- just jot down little notes here and there.
It is a cute book ... probably one of the nicest baby journals available.

A really nice book. My wife has enjoyed how simple it was. It's not "demanding" on what you want to include. Read morePublished 6 months ago by J. Walczak
I like this book, but I wish it was bigger. It would be easier to put photos in if it had a larger format. Apart from that, the illustrations are very nice and non-intrusive. Read morePublished 8 months ago by G
