This book is perfect! It’s better than my expectation The printing quality is very good and the design is very creative and unique! The book is covering almost every single detail in the baby’s first years. The stickers are very cute and the book comes with handprints kit Highly recommended!
So cute. Pages are bright colors and seem to be durable. Perfect! My first grandchild arrives in December.
Thankful for Amazon Prime which allowed me to get a variety of baby books to look through with free returns. Finally decided on this one (non-picture cover)! I previously used the Tiny Gifts, My Tiny Adventures First 5 Years Baby Memory Book + Ink Pad + Gift Box for my daughter (which I also recommend) but wanted a different book for kiddo #2 (boy, planning animal theme) for the sake of variety. Let me say that all of the books below are cute in their own way and I don’t think that there is one single perfect baby book out there that suits every single person (unless you scrapbook and have all the time in the world with a newborn, in which case, are you a robot? haha). Even this one was not perfect for what I wanted but lots of ways to make certain pages better or fit my preferences. All of the books have similar weight and quality of pages in my opinion so that was not really a factor. The other ones I purchased which I felt were comparable after reading reviews: 1. C.R. Gibson Grey ‘Linen Tree’ Loose Leaf First Five Years Memory Baby Book 2. C.R. Gibson Elephant ‘Hello World’ First Five Years Memory Baby Book 3. Carter’s by C.R. Gibson Hello World Animal Themed Bound Baby Memory Book 4. Ronica Brand Baby Boy Gift Set with Baby Memory Book, Monthly Stickers 5. Itty-Bitty Gifts My Adventures, A Book About the Precious Firsts, First 5 Years Baby Memory Book + Ink Pad + Gift Box 6. Co Little Baby Memory Book, The Story of Me, Baby’s First Moments and Firsts (A Book Full of Love and Adventures) + Ink Pad 7. Lucy Darling Little Animal Lover Memory Book Why I ultimately chose this one: - Book shipped and arrived in good quality with cute full box cover with clear front window to see the front of the book (Ronica Brand came with front book cover completed bowed in the middle, C.R.G. Hello World book came with a back keepsake box but no front, just plastic cover) - Comes with monthly, yearly, and milestone stickers as well as ink pad for handprints/footprints (what I thought was lacking about the C.R. Gibson books, especially for how much you pay for the loose leaf one) - Pictures are all either 4x6 or 5x7 and have clearly delineated lines for the photos (C.R.G. books have some oddly shaped photos without clear measurements I’d have to cut and would end up covering up some of the cute illustrations; Itty-Bitty Gifts was all 3.5x5; Co Little has some 3.5x5 and 4x4 in spaces thrown in at random; Lucy Darling is all 4x4 or 3x3 in (square Instagram type photos), which I originally thought would be fun but quickly realized I definitely won’t have time for that!) - Monthly pages have minimal lines to fill in. This could be considered a pro or con, but for me, definitely a pro so I don’t feel the need to wrack my brain for additional info that I can’t remember. In comparison, the Tiny Adventures book we used with my daughter has several more lines than this book has and I found myself putting the same types of “milestones” for several of the months or just leaving lines blank in that book. This one is perfect for us. (The C.R.G. loose leaf had a LOT of space for writing, which ultimately was a major factor for me). - Rare spelling/grammar errors, only main one I have noticed is “I learnt those new things” on the monthly pages, learnt being more commonly used outside U.S. but to me it should be “Learnt THESE new things” but I'm probably just being too picky (incorrect spelling/grammar in a publication is a pet peeve of mine; Co Little has some interesting ones you can read on its reviews, my husband and I are still chuckling at “My First Doctor’s VISTIT”) - Has pages for pretty much all the possible holidays you could want or take pictures of your little one celebrating, plus a random page in the back of the book for “My Other Special Holidays" (would have put this after the other holiday pages, but it’s cute and thoughtful regardless; I was shocked to find that the C.R.G. loose leaf book had one SINGLE spread for “my special Holidays”) - Has a Table of Contents. This is the only book of the ones above that had this. Would be more helpful if it had correlating page numbers, but it at least shows you the general layout to get to a certain page easier. - Has multiple spreads for Mommy, Daddy, and family, including letters from Mommy and Daddy. This could also be a con (especially for LGBTQ+ or single parent families), but I really liked this setup for me personally as family is so important to us. I think these pages could be easily repurposed. - Has a Keepsake envelope in the back. This is where I am most likely to keep things like the hospital bracelet (though this book has a page for that) and extra ultrasound or other photos. (None of the C.R.G. books above have this pocket, but if you got the loose leaf 3-ring binder style you can obviously very easily add a pocket in for keepsakes). - Can choose cover with picture and footprint slot or plain cover (our preference) as well as the gray unisex or pink color. Nice to hav
I love it! beautiful designs and excellent quality.
It was present for my grand baby . I loved it plus it arrived early
This book includes everything you can think about!
I like it but it’s cheap made seems as if you have to handle with extra care
I gave this as a baby shower gift. The recipient seemed very pleased with the book, it's style, the stickers and baby safe ink. I loved it when I looked through it and felt confident in giving this gift to a very special mother to be.
Got for new granddaughter. Parents love it and can't wait to see the difference as she grows.
Fantastic Book. Was so excited to give to my son. His first child & the pages are so vibrant. You have places to write & places to put pictures. It has everything I wanted in a baby book for them. Can't wait for them to get started.
Bought this for my daughter for the the gender reveal party. She absolutely loves it. She is a huge fan of giraffes. Now she can't wait to start filing it out.
