Sweet Old Fashioned Baby Book

Mother Stork's Baby Book

Yes, you can modernize motherhood in all sorts of ways, but we aren't into online baby books. I want a sweet, old fashioned baby book. We've talked about a myriad of apps meant to make your life simpler as a mom, and tech tools to help you store everything online. But sometimes old-school ways are best.

My favorite baby book of all time is the Kistner Supply book called the Mother Stork’s Baby Book. If you love DIY, scrapbooking and practicing your handwriting, this book is for you. With a little time, love and creativity, you'll turn this book into a priceless heirloom.

I wish this book were the one I used for my girls. I had some basic books that I jotted down "firsts" and taped in pictures. The books I used were nothing special and my girls adore them. They love cuddling up with me and flipping through the pages--you just can't have the same experience with a laptop or a phone.

Unlike my rather pedestrian baby books, this one is high-end all the way (and let's face it, for $150 it should be well-made). The book has archival-quality paper and is hardbound in the Smythe Sewn technique. The folks at Kistner say it's "the oldest and most durable bookbinding method available."

Now I'm not saying this book is for everyone. If you were never able to keep up with a journal or scrapbook, well, this probably will gather dust. But if you are the woman who has even the smallest amount of creative energy, this is a wonderful project. Oh, and it includes acid-free photo corners and an archival-quality gel pen.


It ships ready to gift with a pretty ribbon wrapped in acid-free tissue and placed into a custom gift box. For all the BFFs and Grandmas out there, this makes a wonderful Christmas gift.
