I have never been able to find the perfect baby book. I am a single mom who birthed at home and do not do well child visits or vaccinations. I left some pages blank and some I went ahead and put a little something about the donor. For my first I used and Anne Geddes "My First Five Years." It at least did assume a hospital born babe. For my second (who wound up being born in the hospital) I bought a scrap book and my own paper and stickers that I wanted to use.

Just a thought, maybe she will want to write down some things about the daddy. The child will want to know someday and although he is gone, I'm sure he is not forgotten. It may be painful, but perhaps it will therapeutic for her to fill in the dad's pages herself?

That's so true. I was thinking of making a book for her, actually. Then there can be a page to tell all about daddy, but not "What was daddy doing in the delivery room?" and stuff like that.

She doesn't know it, but I got her for a baby shower gift exchange and our due date group. I think her husband died just a few months ago. I haven't really asked her too many questions because I don't want to make her cry
