This is an easy way to do a baby book! I just keep the calendar hung in baby’s room and write in baby’s firsts and special moments as we go. Growth statistics get written in on the day of each doctor appointment. At the end of each month I collage some photos to document what baby did and what baby looked like.
This calendar is made with durable heavy matte paper which is easy to write on. It has 13 months. The colors in the picture (pink, light pink, orange, light brown) are true and consistent throughout, including the stickers. Stickers are 1" square and fill the box so you don’t have space to write in your own details for that day. The first couple of pages have info on mommy & daddy, birth info, and basic family tree, then for the months, he top half has the same text on every page (sleeping patterns, feeding, likes, dislikes, fav toys, learning to…), except for 13th month, which says happy birthday and has more open space to write. Most pages have designated space for a photo, but even on the ones that don’t, there is plenty of room
5 rows for weeks. The days of the week and month stickers are not capitalized (cute, but not grammatically correct).
The calendar was shipped in a plastic sleeve which protected it in shipping, so it was in pristine condition (there was no risk of dinged corners or folds) when I received it.
Stickers are a great timesaver.
Gave one of these to my daughter-in-law 3 yrs ago for her first child, because she likes simple things. She really liked it being so easy to track the milestones, without taking too much of her time, so I ordered this one for the second child, born this week. Also Like this calendar being a 13 month one. It could use a few more first happenings stickers.
Very fast shipping!
The calendar is a great way to track all of baby’s “firsts” or other important info. It comes with stickers but once those are applied to the days square, there is very little space left to record any info relating to it. That’s my biggest gripe. Other than that, we really like this product.
Perfect for keeping track of the little events in your daily routine with baby
My husband had had such a calendar, which is why we looked online for one (couldn’t find one in any of the stores we went to). I chose this one since it had the same categories every month. That appealed to me as it would be a nice way of making comparisons to notice overall changes in the baby’s sleeping & eating patterns, as well as likes, dislikes, and learning milestones. I have really enjoyed filling it out. And it’s amazing how quickly you forget little things that – at the time – you think you’ll always remember. It’s fun seeing when was her first bath and who came to visit and small things, like ‘today you played on your activity mat for 50 mins’. The stickers make it fun, although I wish there were more about the baby and a few less about holidays. Still, overall we are very happy and it makes a nice addition to her baby book.
Made for people like me who are terrible at keeping records!
This calendar is adorable and makes it easy to keep track of all those special moments. Comes with cute stickers and is made so you can start a 1 year calendar at anytime of year. I did one for my first daughter also.
It’s been 3 months and I’ve had a great time making notes in this calendar. The stickers that come with it are great reminders of some of the things to write in here. I use it to mark down things that we do together, different places that we go and people that we see. I also write down all the new things that she is learning. This will be so much fun to look back on.
Cute, just what I was looking for
This calendar is very cute. It has a additional pages for info about Mom & Dad, birth stats a family tree, letter from mommy & daddy, etc. I posted pictures in the gallery so you can see what they look like. Overall, I’m happy with the purchase.
First Year Calendar
I used one with my daughter 5 years ago, and knew it would be the only way Id be able to keep up with my new daughters milestones. So glad I got it – comes with stickers, and each page has a place to list the things your child has accomplished this month!
Recommend this for all new parents. Calendars are easy to use and remember because you walk passed it daily. Easy to remember to add milestones and key dates.
Love Carter’s first year calendar
Great gift for first time parents…simple and quick to use and they can out it in a baby book later!
