When you experience something as life changing as childbirth, it can be important to document the journey. Some mothers find that keeping track of baby’s life from conception to birth and throughout her life can be a great way to tell the baby story of their child’s life. With many albums and journals available to chronicle important events, it’s relatively easy to keep track of important events as you progress through the stages of your pregnancy and as your baby grows.
Often, women keep birth diaries as a way of communicating with other expectant mothers. Most first time mothers especially seek out advice from other women who have gone through pregnancy and child birth so they’ll know what to expect at different stages. There are many blogs and websites that chronicle these stories as a way for women to have easy access to the information they need. These birth diaries help put expectant mothers’ minds at ease with so many uncertainties ahead.
If you want to tell the baby story of your child, you should find a way to keep track of important developmental milestones. You could use a video camera to keep a video diary of first steps and first words and other firsts.
These video diaries are great ways to share these milestones with friends and family members who want to keep track of baby. There are also baby books designed to track these events. There are usually places for photos and entries with detailed information about your baby. As baby grows, you’ll want to keep a record of when she first held up her head or when she took her first steps. You’ll definitely want to record what her first word was and this is a great way to keep that information for many years to come.
