I ordered this book for a friend who will soon become a young, single mother. I was thrilled to find a book that will celebrate her baby's first milestones without the very traditional mother/father approach. While this book would certainly suit a more traditional family, it is refreshing to find one that does not alienate anyone. The illustrations are simple and lovely, and the book's layout offers plenty of space for handwritten musings.

This book is very personal, unique and artful. I much prefer the style to any pre-printed baby book I have seen. It is small and paperback, so lends itself more to a journal, which I like. I keep it at my bedside and write when the mood strikes (and no one is crying or hungry!). Because it is less formal, I feel more comfortable just picking it up to write. In my opinion, it is a nice addition to (rather than a replacement for) a more formal, sturdy, large book for holding photos and keepsakes. It doesn't seem like it would withstand a lot of wear and tear, but I'm not sure how important this is anyway. I especially like it for the second child because her "baby book" will certainly have pictures of her big sister too, while this is a nice place, dedicated only to her.

I really enjoyed filling out this journal. I didn't start until my son was just over a year, but in a few hours I was able to jot down lots of notes from memory and fill it most of the way out. McClure includes thought-provoking questions on some pages while leaving most of the pages blank (with only the month denoted) for free-form writing. Her art is simple and heartwarming and adds an element of fun and class to the journal. After I added a few pictures here and there it seems complete, even though I don't have every white space filled out.
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.

I love Nikki McClure's illustrations and I am thrilled have this book to document memories with my baby. The book is SO low pressure, unlike so many of those huge and highly detailed baby books. The book provides guidance for recording memories without requiring tons of maintenance. Buy for yourself or as a gift. Wonderful.

A really nice book. My wife has enjoyed how simple it was. It's not "demanding" on what you want to include. A lot of the other books that are similar "require" you to post/add specific events that aren't always monumental or desired to record. So then we're left with awkward blank spots and a pressure to add information.

as a non conventional household this book gave my daughter a way to represent her daughter with a family with no dad available without reminding that it could be an incomplete family. so this gives you an optional way to prevent a sad day the child feels their family is incomplete by traditional standards but helps them see that their family is unique In loving in its own way.

I love Nikki McClure's work, and I had a baby so how could I not give this a 5 stars? FYI: this is definitely a journal with mostly blank pages. If you're looking for something more guided, look elsewhere (maybe etsy?)

These drawings are beautiful! I desperately wanted to write memories of my son's life, without feeling limited by constantly being prompted to only write about doctor visits, weight checks, teeth charts etc. I will say that before I purchased it through amazon, I checked a couple other sites (Barnes and noble) to see a couple more pages to get an idea of what the rest of the book was like. I am so in love with her artwork (check out her books at your local library!) am I allowed to purchase the same book for all my children?!? ;)
