I bought this for my baby that I'm expecting this month. I think it has a cute look and will have lots of info without being too thorough or aggressive to keep up with. I like the areas for photos, the way it's sectioned off, etc. I think it'll be the perfect snapshot of the beginning of her life to give to my daughter one day. Really looking forward to using it!

This book has been so fun and easy to use. My baby girl is almost 9 months already and the pages are so easy to fill out that I haven't missed writing down a single event. I love keepsakes and memory stuff, but I'm terrible at journaling and scrap booking. This book is perfect cause it captures all the important details without taking up too much time or effort. Bonus is that it's gender neutral and still really cute.

It has a short section for pregnancy and birth stuff (baby shower, family history, the birth and the first couple weeks)

Then the next section is for the first year. There's a spot for a picture from that month and stats and other details can be written below. At 3, 6 and 12 months they have an extra section called exclusive interview where you can go into a little more detail about that stage of their life. (sample questions - What's the best piece of parenting advice you've received so far? Have you been having date nights yet? What are some of your favorite things to do together?) The section ends with 4 1/2 pages for 12 months and birthday information and pictures.

The third and final section is the gallery of firsts where it has a separate page for a picture and details about the event. Some of these include: holidays, seasons, bath, first words, first big trip. And then pages to jot down the dates next to milestones such as: First time playing peek-a-boo, first time giving a kiss, first time crawled, first steps, first time eating solid food, first words, first tooth (although there isn't a tooth chart :( )first laugh and lots lots more!

The book ends with a couple pages where mom and dad can write a letter to baby. And then a page for baby to write in when they are all grown up.

You will not be disappointed with this book! So fun. So easy to use. And memories that will last a lifetime.

I just bought this book to help record my child's first year. I love the cute sense of humor and the fill-in-the-blank approach to recording all of my child's firsts. Not one to scrapbook or journal, this has given me a unique and special way to document this time, without having to spend loads of time doing it. I especially love that there is a place to put a picture for each month....I was doing this anyway, but now I have a great way to display how she changes each month.

I bought this book when I found out I was pregnant with Peanut, baby #2. I like it because it covers all of the basics in a fun, tongue-in-cheek style. It is easy to fill out, and is great for parents who want to remember many of the first details, but not spend a ton of time relishing over details. I also appreciate that this book is written with the Dad in mind too. It uses the pronoun "we" and many of the pages could be filled out by Dad too, if he so wanted. However, there isn't much personal creativity offered. It is because of this element that I gave it a 4, not a 5. If I were to choose another journal, I would personally want one that included a few more open-ended pregnancy prompts. This is a perfect book for those who want to fill in a sentence or two, check a box and have the book say more what you were feeling. If you are a writer or sentimental, letter-keeping type person, you might want to check out another prompted journal or two. This book is a concise and fun way to record your baby's first year.

I love the question and answer format of this book. It is really cute. My problem is with the quality of the materials. The paper is very thin and flimsy which was tolerable to me. However the entire spiral binding of my book separated from the cover. There is no way to get the cover back on. Baby books are meant to be keepsakes and should be made accordingly. The cute idea does not make up for the poor construction.

I really like this book as it has tear out pages so you can remove those pages that aren't relevant to you and your baby. Also, there is a nice sense of humor to the way the pages and questions are developed which makes it more fun to fill out. I would definitely recommend to new Moms but make sure you keep it handy bc its easy to forget to take note of those milestones and if you wait too long the dates all become a blur!

I am 3 weeks away from giving birth. I hate the idea of having "homework," but I had received and filled out some pages of a baby book (not all-- just the important stuff) for my first kid-- so of course-- I had to do it for my second. I am busy with a toddler and a move, so I didn't want an extensive project. This book was EXACTLY what I needed. In 20 minutes, I had the first section all filled out! Now all I need is the baby to come so I can fill out the rest. This book really does a great job of outlining what's important; helping you note anything significant, but it does not bog you down with minutiae. It's perfect for those who want to jot down some memories and create a keepsake without spending hours on a baby book. GREAT price too!! I saw a different book in one store for $28 and another at Walmart for $14. You can't beat this book or Amazon's price for it. HIGHLY recommend.
