Making & Keeping Memories In Baby’s First Year

The first year of your little one's life can be such a wonderful time. It can also be unbelievably hectic and

exhausting, so much so in fact that it can feel as if it goes by in a whirl. That's why it is so essential to make

and keep special memories and mementos of this time. The good news is there are several easy and enjoyable

ways that you can do this. Keep reading to find out what they are. 


Newborn photoshoot 

A fantastic option for making memories in Baby's first year is to get a professional Newborn Photographer to do

a shoot. The great thing about this option is that you don't have to worry about taking the photos and so can

attend to your little one. While at the same time, being safe in the knowledge that an expert will be getting the

best shots. 


In particular, if you are looking for an enjoyable and productive experience, be sure to pick a photographer with

plenty of experience with kids (and even has their own). Then you will know that even if Baby isn't on top form,

they will give you space and the time to settle them. Something that means you will get some beautiful images

that will last you a lifetime, and that can be given to proud grandparents as well.


Baby box 

Another popular option to consider is a baby box? These can be cardboard or wooden boxes, and you can get

some really nice ones that are personalized with your child's name. Alternately, you can get a plain box and

decorate them yourself with decoupage paper and scrapbooking supplies.


The idea of a baby box is to keep all the bits and pieces from the baby's first year together. These include the

outfit you bought them home from the hospital in their medical bracelet and printed out photos. 


In fact, the baby box idea is very much like the baby book that you will find below. However, it does let you store

larger items like cute pairs of shoes that seem so tiny when you look back on them. It also requires less effort

because you can just add items into the box and then go back and curate them later. Something that can be a

big booking for a busy new mamma. 


Baby book 

A baby book is slightly different from a baby box in that the more bulky items can't be stored in it. However, Baby

books are still a wonderful idea because they are perfect for keeping photos safe. You can also use them to store

details and information about baby's firsts. 


You can find some beautiful pre-printed baby books that have sections to add when they first smile, laugh, and

sleep through the night. Some even have a month-by-month plan to track Baby's progress and keep all those

special memories to hand. 


Alternatively, you can go for a smash book idea where you buy a blank book and some glue and decorate it yourself. The latter option can be fun because you can decide whether to follow a timeline or add things to wherever you'd like. The latter being something that can be a lot of fun to review once Baby is older.
