I am looking to get a baby journal that I will love as much as I loved Nikki McClure's "The First 1000 Days", which I used with DS. I liked that there was not a lot of pressure with that journal, that there were decent prompts, and that I could fill it in as I went along fairly easily. Does anyone know of one that is good?

I did the Nikki Mclure one for dd and plan to do it again for this child. I love it!
I bought DD's book from this shop and loved it so much that I just ordered and recieved one for baby on the way:
I liked them so much because they have all the traditional stuff (growth, teeth, birth details etc), but also had lots of more thoughtful and modern questions. The best part is the calendar for their first year - it comes with stickers for milestones, i.e. walking, eating etc, but it is also really easy to jot in anything else you want to remember into the calendar. There are also pages for each big event - xmas, halloween, birthday etc. with room for pictures
I was also excited that they are 3-ring, so you can move pages, add pages, etc. It comes with lots of extra pages for pictures, writing, etc. And you can even add in photo album type pages for things like hospital bracelets, pressed flowers, whatever you like
They're more $$ than I planned on spending but I was glad I did, I just finished up DD's book and love how much I could put into it!
