Record Books

New parents usually love record books. These are fantastic because you can get record books (also known as memory books) to keep track of your baby’s growth starting from pregnancy. If you missed the boat with your pregnancy, you can find those that are specifically for the first year of your baby’s life and beyond. So what’s the big deal with record books anyway? Well, there are sections to place your baby’s foot and hand prints, inoculation updates, teeth growth, weight height and more – basically it’s a visual reminder of everything to do with baby, even their first word! There are gender-specific , religious and neutral versions available, so there is something for everyone. For awesome record books, have a look at Baby City or Exclusive Books.

Scrapbooks 

Scrapbooking is actually an art form, in case you didn’t know. It’s a fun and creative way to record your kids’ best (and worst and funniest!) memories. It can be time-consuming, so set aside a few Saturdays to get it done, but it’s all worth the effort to have a totally unique and custom memory book. There’s no better place to get your scrapbooks and scrapbooking material than from PNA. For more creative freedom with your scrapbooking material, Herbert Evans is the place to go. And if you’re lucky, you may even have a local scrapbooking shop in your area.

Virtual 

Email Account

In the world of technology, keeping a hardcopy version of anything might seem a bit too risky – once a hardcopy is lost or damaged, there’s little that can be done to restore or recover it. A new popular way to keep track of memories is for parents to create an email account, where they can email through images, stories, songs and letters, etc. Once the child is old enough, the parents gift them the email account (password included), so that they can access the emails, starting from when they were a baby. This can easily become the new wave in parenthood. Give it a try.

On A Cloud

If you’re planning to save big files, such as videos, then an email account might not be effective enough. Creating a cloud storage account, such as Dropbox, Google Drive or iCloud, is the next best thing. Not only can you save and treasure your kids’ best memories, you can pass the account onto them to use when they reach school or varsity (which we all know they will need). To top it off, you can always buy more storage to add to your account, which means you – and your child– will never run out of space.

Facebook or Instagram Account

Creating a Facebook or Instagram account for children is the new thing to do – especially for millennial parents. Not only can you record your kid’s memories in a cute way, you can also get to share the moment with friends and family – no matter where they may be in the country or globe. It’s also interesting to see the child’s personality through their parents’ eyes. Some of our favourite children’s Instagram accounts are listed below:
