Baby Keepsake Book

I would like to buy a keep sake journal for when baby arrives. I was looking at some on the net and they are a bit cheesy. Has anyone got any ideas?

Hi Jo

How are you?! I don't know if this is the sort of thing you're after but I think it's one of the best presents we received for the twins and has kept me very busy filling it in! if you go to this link, you'll see lots of ideas for what to put in over the years and it's something you can pass on to your child to carry on too.


If you want something smaller, I got a couple of the more traditional baby books from John Lewis which have pages for all the essential info for baby's first year together with spaces for pics and stuff. I got someone this for a present too JOHN LEWIS - LITTLE MOMENTS GIFT which i thought was a neat and simple way of storing those memorable moments.

Hope this helps.

It might not be your cup of tea, but I've just been given a book by a friend.... its called My Baby Book and its based on the childrens story book Guess How Much I Love You. Apparently they looked everywhere for a decent keepsake book and in the end got this one online - Amazon I think. I love it and can't wait to start filling it in. : D

Thanks girls some fab ideas.
Good to see you back on the forum Duffy, I am good, almost 37 weeks now so not too long to go!! It is all very exciting.

Duffy I love the big one but wonder would I be disciplined enough to fill it in!! The John Lewis one looks very compact so that could be a goer I think.
Claire I like the one you suggested too....
Oh decisions, decisions....

For Charlie I've got a Humphrey's corner Baby record book that my mum gave me and I've also written a journal of his first year. I found a lovely red diary with a ribbon in rymans and have written in it every Friday (he was born on a Friday) recording what we've done each week, who he's met, what he ate, how much he weighed etc. I've left space for pics too. It makes my DH cry when he reads it. I've loved writing it and hope C enjoys reading it when he's older. I've got to do the same with the 2nd as well. Good luck xxx
