I am a huge memory freak. I take pictures of everything and have tons of scrapbooks. Of course, once I found out I was pregnant I went on the hunt for the perfect baby scrapbooks to document my little one. This is my round-up of must-have baby memory books for new moms.

It took awhile to find a baby memory book I like because I found that a lot of the books either had too many prompts, or not enough room for pictures, or only space for pictures.

Here are my recommendations for must-have baby memory books for new moms:

The Story of You, Artifact Uprising: This photo book is beautiful. I can’t wait to use it for baby number two. If you register the book you get additional benefits like photo tips, ideas for making the most of your book, and a complimentary set of Everyday Prints to include in your book. Each book also comes with a pen and adhesive for securing your prints.

2 Giggles Baby Book, Etsy: This is my main baby book. I love the fabric cover and it has a great set up. There is a section for pregnancy and then sections for each month with basic prompts so you can get a sense for growth from month to month and space for pictures. There are lots of nice add-ons that go with the book like extra prompts and scrapbook pages and memory boxes which are great for the larger items including your baby book!

Baby Journal by Yasmeen Ismail, Uncommon Goods: I love the illustrations in this journal. It is very simple and sweet. I like that there are different ways to record information like checking boxes where appropriate for breastfeeding and falling asleep and pages of information on swaddling and lullabies followed by pages to write your experience and envelopes for keepsakes.

Twelve Wishes for Baby, Rag and Bone: This book is more for me than documenting baby. It provides 12 pages with prompts for you to personalize for baby. I imagine giving this to Aiden when he grows up.

Little Animal Lover Memory Book, Lucy Darling: I don’t have this book yet, but it looks super cute and I will probably add it to my collection soon! This website has lots of really sweet things for babies.

There are so many cute baby book options the only trouble is remembering to keep up with them! I love that these all have writing prompts that make it easy to know what to write and update.

Hi, I’m Melissa! I am a mama to an energetic preschooler and newborn, a wife to my amazing husband Dan, and I work full-time as a meeting planner. I started this blog because, after having my first little guy, I quickly learned that exhaustion and baby brain causes you to forget some of the amazing (sometimes horrible and sometimes wonderful) details related to the first several months of raising a baby. Realizing that we would probably have more kids in the future, I wanted to document everything, so we would remember what worked the first time around, and hopefully help other first time mamas along the way!
