I'm a regular baby journaler. I'm trying to keep a log for my little one's entire first year so I can tell when exactly when he started this or that or whatever.
My first book was Baby Tracker Childcare Journal - Time Dots. I LOVED it for those early months of constant monitoring. Excellent design for round the clock notes. By month 3 I was ready for something a little less intense.
My second book was Baby's Eat, Sleep & Poop Journal, Log Book (Aqua). I liked how compact it was, but I was a little less thrilled with the layout than my first book. Still, it was nice having a blank note page opposite the tracking page in order to jot down 'firsts'.
This newest book doesn't really measure up to the other two for organizing baby's activities.
~Smeared ink from printing process ~Too big to be handy. ~Non-spiral bound keeps tracking the current page a pain..why aren't there tabs?? ~Splitting out the 'sleep' section makes NO SENSE
Pros: ~Because my baby is past 6mos, I'm not constrained by constant jotting. I generally just write whatever I want where I want. In this case, I could have bought a blank notebook, really.
I'm sure this book works for some people, but really, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone without some significant modifications.
