Dear New Moms, Here’s What You Need

Having your first baby can leave you feeling extremely overwhelmed. The excitement sets in and you’re worried about picking out a baby name, decorating the nursery, and figuring out how you’re going to break the news to your family and friends. At one point before the baby arrives, you’re probably going to panic when it comes to how prepared you are. How much do you and your partner really know about raising a child? Are you really going to lose as much sleep as they tell you? Do you have everything you need?

Buying the necessities is exciting, but what you really want to do is decorate and make purchases that are going to create memories. You buy the top of the line crib, the best stroller on the market, diapers in bulk, and all of the other trinkets that are about to take over your home. Once those shopping trips are out of the way, it’s time for some fun. You want to be able to remember the early months and years of your baby’s life, and there are some great products out there that can help you do this.

Custom Kids Books

Read Your Story is a company that works to make your child’s memories last a lifetime. These unique books add their name, photo, and a personal dedication to the child while integrating all of those details with the story plot. You can even add two other photos of pets, parents, childhood home, etc. It’s the perfect keepsake gift and bedtime story book.

The Newborn Poster

Made by the same company as the custom kids book, the newborn poster is created to mock the actual size of your newborn baby. The poster is then personalized with the baby’s name, height, length, weight, date of birth, and time of birth. The poster measures out to be 20” x 30”. The modern décor can be hung in the baby’s nursery or put on greater display in a family meeting area so you can always remember those first days.

Customized Baby Pillow

Another product that can last a lifetime is a custom pillow with engrained memories of your baby’s first day on Earth. This pillow can include your baby’s name, weight, length, birth date, birth time, and even the state/city in which he or she was born. The pillow size is 20” x 20”.

Baby Month Milestone Blanket

These blankets are super trendy in the baby world, and for good reason. The idea is that you lay your baby down on the blanket and indicate on the blanket how old the baby is when taking the picture. This way you have pictures with the same backdrop and you can see exactly how they grow over the weeks and months.

Baby’s First Christmas Ornament

Someone will most likely gift you a Christmas ornament celebrating your new baby’s first December, but it’s always fun to pick one out that you love and can cherish. This ornament found on Etsy is cute, simple, and represents the birth of your baby in the best way. The rounded ornament outlines the month of your baby’s birth and indicates the exact date with a heart. You can then add details like their name, birth weight, birth length, birth time, and year.

Baby Memory Book

There’s no doubt that you’re going to take a ton of pictures during the first few years of your baby’s life. It’s a great idea to keep them organized in a baby book. You can make your own scrapbook or buy a beautiful handmade book. This one particularly captures the first 5 years of his or her life.

To all the new moms out there, make the most of this precious time by recording and remembering every moment of those early days, weeks, months, and years.
