Second, I think that if we can't find something appropriate, I will go ahead and buy a blank album and create our own book. I have ordered some "traditional" books ('used' and cheap to get ideas) but I wanted to ask other parents for suggestions.
What kind of pages would you have included in your baby book if you were designing it? If I end up making it, I'll have our family trees, a donor info page, a page about her extended and friendship family, and of course, a page about our pets! I want to do a few pages about some of the choices we made- about choosing a donor, choosing our midwife, and about her name etc. Anything you've thought of? We're also talking, not sure if it's realistic or not, about turning this project into an at-home business. Who knows how we'll feel AFTER the baby is here , but I see a need for nice, affordable books that work for our, and other non-traditional, families.
I appreciate any suggestions and I sure hope this is an OK thing to post!
Used to be stay at home parent to our two lovely girls, survived nursing school with family intact, about to graduate and looking for a job! I low-supply nursed my bio daughter for 3 years.
creating your own photo and journaling book is by far the coolest most personal option and avoids the whole wasted space. delima.
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
