Baby books take a lot of time. And while most of us moms start out with great intentions of keeping up a baby book for every one of our children, filling in every slot with pertinent information and keeping the baby scrapbook up-to-date, the reality is usually quite the opposite.
Here are 3 alternatives to the traditional baby book that may make your life a little easier, especially if you are active on social media.
1- InstaBaby- If you’re like me, you’re already using Instagram to capture your baby’s favorite moments. Why not print them all into a digital baby book you’ll keep forever? And even better, why not create a private instagram of your baby exclusively? That way you can keep the dates and milestones documented with just a few clicks of your smartphone.
2- Baby’s First Twitter Account: While I'm not a huge tweeter, I did like this idea. Sometimes all you have time for is 140 characters. Create a Twitter account for your baby and post status updates of latest milestones, funny moments and first words. If you are an active tweeter this wouldn't take too much effort and the tweets you compile will help your mom brain remember all those precious moments.
3. Baby's Own Email: Set your baby up with his or her own email and then start emailing them their milestones, funny happenings, descriptions of their personalitiy, etc. Be sure to attach photos and videos. And even have friends and family send emails too. How fun when they become adults (or even teenagers) for them to gain access to all of these heartfelt emails. Plus for moms on the go, you can find even just a quick second to send an email to record exactly what you want to remember.
