Capture your pregnancy in a baby book

What do you think your baby will look like? And when did you first feel your child kick? The moment you discover that you are pregnant then a new phase of life begins. Over the course of nine months, the little one in your tummy grows from a tiny dot to a baby with all the trimmings, and you will start to notice changes in the way you look and feel. Therefore, capture your experiences in a pregnancy diary or nine-month book. This way you can later reminisce back to this special time.

Tips for making your pregnancy diary

• Start your pregnancy diary, or nine-month book, with a photo of your positive test, and keep a record of all the special moments that follow.
• Take a picture of your pregnant belly every week, wearing the same clothes and standing in the same place. After the delivery, take a similar photo with your baby in front of your stomach, and merge the photos into a timeline in your photo book.
• Don't forget to take pictures of everything around your pregnancy. Were you covered in paint while preparing the nursery? How did your (mother-in-law) look when she heard that she was going to be a grandmother?
• Write about any special reactions you get from your environment.
• Keep all the nice cards you receive and stick them in the appropriate "empty boxes" after printing your photo album.

First-Year Baby Diary: Make a baby book

And of course, after your baby is born, you can continue capturing beautiful memories by starting a baby diary of the first year. How did the delivery go? What did you think when you saw your baby for the first time? How did Grandma react when she finally heard her grandchild's name? What was it like taking your baby home for the first time? What were his or her first words? Those are the moments that you have to capture so that they don't disappear into oblivion.

In the free diary app from Travel Diaries for iOS or Android you can easily keep a baby book from birth. Take photos during the day and create a regular writing moment for yourself. For example, write weekly before going to bed with a cup of tea, during your baby's afternoon nap, or - for the true multitasker - during feeding. After a while, it becomes a habit and even a necessity later on. You will find that there are many moments that are so precious that you cannot let them slip from your hands. You can capture them in words and images in your online baby book or baby diary, which you can have printed afterward once completed. This way, you can always think back to a time that passed by in the blink of an eye.

2. Write down the stories of your pregnancy and your baby

Writing all the texts for an entire book at once is a lot of work. Therefore, schedule regular writing moments now, for example when you wait for the kettle or when your baby is quietly lying in bed. Writing quickly will then become a habit and in between, you can open your online baby book more and more often to add moving moments. As we store your photos and stories securely in the cloud, you never have to worry about losing them.

3. Choose the style for your pregnancy diary or baby album

The unique thing about the Travel Diaries diary software is that you can design everything yourself. Choose from over fifty different layouts and numerous fonts and style options for your baby book. The title, date and location display, and body text all have their own formatting options, so you can customize each part of the book. For example, choose a baby pink or baby blue title.

4. Add photos to your baby book

Collect the most beautiful photos with the texts in the baby album, and determine how largely they are displayed. Leave boxes empty by adding empty boxes to the baby book so that you can stick mementos such as pictures of the ultrasound, the hospital bracelet, and a birth announcement there later.

Other types of diaries

Travel Diaries is suitable for making any type of diary. For example, it initially started due to the lack of good tools to record travel stories and therefore was created with room for longer stories, unlimited space for uploading photos, and being able to draw route maps yourself. Hence the name: Travel Diaries. Nowadays, the Travel Diaries software is no longer only used for travel diaries but instead for all the kinds of diaries and purposes that you can imagine: a pregnancy diary, baby books, recipe books, a way to record your life, and love stories, or a personal report of the most beautiful moments as a personalized book as a gift.
