Page contents below!

I found it helpful with other reviews to see a list of the pages inside the baby books. I ended up buying this one because the box with drawer was very unique and I knew I wanted a place to put baby shower cards and whatnot. The box is very sturdy, the book is cute, and the included envelopes and labels are handy. The book itself (not the pages within) is ever so slightly smaller than 8.5x11 inches. The layout is clean with plenty of white space. The pages for pasting photos give you lots of room for both photos and writing captions.

Anyway, here are the content pages (most pages have a facing page where you can paste photos):

-=Waiting for Baby=-
All About Mom
All About Dad
Baby On the Way
Preparing for Baby
Baby Shower

-=Hello, Baby=-

I'm surprised by all the 5 star reviews. If I would have paid the $50 retail price I would have been furious. At $31 I still wish I could return it, however it's packaged in a manner such that you destroy the outer wrapping when opening it so..guess not.

The graphics are very nice, and the design with the book/box combo is convenient (and the only reason I'm rating it a 3 vs a 2).
I just don't see this as a standalone memory book and I had hoped to not need multiple. There is just very little to fill out for content in my opinion. Not even a page for hospital visitors/guests to sign, etc. I just expected more based on the reviews perhaps, so it was a disappointment.

1/4 of the pages or more are for photos, and I would have liked more room for detailed questions and actual written responses. The questions that are included...meh. "Mom's favorite song?"- really?It seems like there was thoughtful work done on the graphics and the rest of this was just phoned in. At 19.99 this would be a fine purchase with the understanding that you'd need a secondary book for more details.

This baby book is even better in person. If you're like me and don't care for the frilly baby books sold in stores, this is the book for you. The illustrations are adorable and perfect for parents who like something unique and wholesome. The only reason I stumbled across this baby book is because I bought a finger puppet book for my daughter called "In my Tree", I loved the illustrations so much I searched the internet to see if there were more books by Lorena Siminovich. What an amazing find. I highly recommend this baby book!

This baby memory book and keepsake box is adorable. The artwork is so precious. The box is beautifully made and high quality. The memory book has many many pages to fill up and each page prompts you to write special things. Great spaces for adding photos, invitations, etc. I love it.

Love the modern graphics in this baby book! There are tons of pages to fill out info all about baby and family. There is a page for each month as well as separate pages for many of baby's firsts. There are also pages to fill in details about all the things baby does during the first year such as eating, talking, and favorites. This is great for a boy or girl. One thing to note, the book is solid orange with a space to put baby's photo on the front. The birds nest graphic is not on the cover of the book, but is on the memory box.

I love this set, the baby book is beautiful with pages for everything pre baby and about baby. I love the monthly pages at the end, it really helps you chronicle your baby's first year. The box is also perfect for storing mementos. The book slides easily inside keeping everything together. I looked for hours for a perfect baby book that wasn't sappy, or filled with "characters", and also had a memory box and this was the only one that fit that bill. It really is a beautiful, simple, design. I have two of these boxes, one for each of my younger daughters (2 months and 2 years). I am even considering buying another one to put together for my 12 year old daughter! Better late than never! There are a couple pages I won't be able to fill for my 3rd daughter, like the page about your baby shower (which I didn't have with my 3rd), so I plan to just paste pictures all over that page (4 pictures fit perfectly to cover an entire page). Or maybe just note a few gifts she did receive and just paste a couple pictures instead. Love these boxes! I wish they made a similar one for the toddler years (memory box + book with maybe yearly or quarterly writing prompts).

We ordered this product two years ago for our first son and then just recently ordered another for our new baby. I wanted something that was gender neutral and would be sturdy enough to be a family heirloom. The artwork in this book is just darling...it follows the same color palette as shown, but uses all types of animals (elephants, giraffes, etc). The content covers all of the basics: birth day info, likes/dislikes, firsts and pages at the end to track milestones for the first year. While this is a bit more expensive than other 'book only' keepsakes, I like the fact that this comes in a box/storage case. The top opens to have a spot to put the book, which keeps it protected more than having it on a shelf. Additionally, the box has a drawer that can be used to put items that are special but may not lend to being put in the book (i.e. larger certificates, baby hats, etc). Additionally, there are a lot of 'extras' that lend the book to preserving keepsakes over time. The drawer has little envelopes that can be used to store special keepsakes (i.e. lock of hair, hospital bracelet) and keep them protected. Additionally, at the end of the book there are pages dedicated to each month where you can list milestones, pictures, weight, etc. Between the pages are tissue paper type material that will keep the pages from sticking together. The little 'extras' and commitment to preserving memories make this worth it to me...so much so that I was willing to use the same version for our second child.
