Format: Hardcover
This Baby Book is perfect for us and our 'baking' baby! The old fashioned style pictures and poems from places such as nursery rhymes, Dr Seuss, and quality children's books make it wholesome and friendly. The content and writing space is adequate with enough time before the baby is born and after. I love it! Reminds me of my own baby book.

Format: Hardcover
This is a great book for parents who want to keep track of EVERYTHING. It has way more pages than any other book I've seen and has tons to fill out. If you're looking for something really simple and basic this isn't it. This book is detailed and will take time to fill out but it's so much fun. I love the old fashioned look of it too.

HASH(0x9b4cec60) out of 5 stars Cute Vintage Design, but Disappointing Quality and Construction May 17 2011
By Just a Bookworm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Other reviewers are correct about the adorable vintage look of this book, the cute illustrations, and the wide variety of appealing quotes. However, I am still disappointed with it. It is not the quality I was hoping for, neither in terms of being archival and lasting for decades nor in terms of the printing, paper, binding and actual quality of construction. I am a librarian, so maybe these qualities matter more to me than they do to others. The paper in the book has a sheen. I cannot imagine being able to write on it with a regular ball point pen without letting it dry before closing the book. Even then, I fear smudges because of the sheen on the paper. The finish might require a fine point Sharpie. However, I am afraid that a Sharpie will bleed through or be seen through the paper, which is not that thick. (You can see through the page to the image on the back of the page when you hold the page up in a room with regular daylight.) Also, the corners and spine of this book are not made of the most durable material, and I can already see that at least the corners are going to be highly susceptible to dings. As at least one other reviewer mentioned, this book does not have any sort of envelopes or holders to add extra items that you would like to preserve with the book. This is a major con for me. I would prefer envelopes or at least an optional storage box with drawers or compartments to go with this book. However, I am not deducting from the rating on the basis of a box since I don't think it's fair to expect a companion storage box with compartments for the relatively low price of this book. It does have a growth chart to fill in, which I think is requisite in a baby book. It has sections in the back for you to paste in baby pictures, but the space seems to be a little limited. Most of the room for journaling does seem quite generous, but the layout is designed for you to answer the prompts given by the author(s), and you will have to be creative if you would like to add your own content. It looks like I will be returning this and moving on to something else in the hopes of finding better quality and durability.

HASH(0x9b4ceeac) out of 5 stars Best baby book ever! Oct. 24 2008
By Mom of two - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is the cutest baby book ever. It's a great size, lots of room to write, cute to look through (it's full of quotes from famous baby books) and beautiful illustrations. I bought it for my first son and was so happy with it I bought another for my second son. I have yet to find a baby book I like nearly as well. I would highly recommend it!

HASH(0x9b4d1108) out of 5 stars Adorable vintage book July 1 2014
By Robyn Margaret McComb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Adorable vintage drawings, lots of places to write and include pictures, and all sorts of prompts to give you ideas to write about from pregnancy to your kid's fifth year. The pages are of thick, high quality glossy paper. The only down side to this is smeary pen ink, so make sure the ink dries before you shut this book. This book is a gem that my child wil love poring over later on in life!

HASH(0x9b4d1384) out of 5 stars Love this book! May 11 2009
By J. Monahan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was very impressed when I got this baby book in the mail. I am super picky and find most baby books cheesey. I almost bought a book for $80, but thought I'd try my luck on this one and I'm so glad I did. I love the vintage, classic look. It's a well made book.

HASH(0x9b4d121c) out of 5 stars Very Sweet! April 13 2007
By N. E. Anthis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a darling baby book with very sweet vintage illustrations. It has a very retro feel to it that is very appealing. The format is easy to use with nicely worded prompts and leaves plenty of room to write.
