The most important stories of the baby's first year
The personalised baby and toddler storybook The Story of Your 1st Year is a great illustrated kids book as it brings together the most important stories of the baby’s first year – starting from birth to the first birthday. It allows for monthly best baby photos to make their way in the book and enrich the memories. As the baby grows up in a toddler, the baby book becomes the perfect toddler personal storybook. It will entice the little one to see his/her baby self in different real moments, to understand his growth development, to be amazed by the stories, to be curious about his/her personal story, to enjoy beautiful illustration which is easy to recognize and connect with and attach warm feelings towards.
Children recognize themselves in our personalised storybook
Why is it important for the children to recognize themselves in a kids' book? The character is your baby, so the baby should look as similar as possible to your baby girl or baby boy. This way, there is a special mental and affectionate connection to the book itself, but more importantly, the baby and later the toddler sees herself/himself in their environment so the affirmation feeling that it is ok to look like they look is there. Plus, the personalised baby girl book or personalised baby boy book, talks also about the challenges such as fear factors that triggered the baby to cry and to feel the need for protection from the parent. That is crucial for the kid development, as the toddler understands it is ok to feel sad, that fear is part of our lives but it can be overcome, that pain from a tummy ache or a bad cold is temporary and that after he/she will go back o the normal daily life.
The name of the kid can be put as it is in the personalised baby book: with diacritics, shorter name, double first names; the baby book adapts to you and not either way around.
The Story of Your First Year makes for the perfect personalised gift for babies
If the mother knows the name of the future baby, then this can be a unique baby shower hostess gift, or if you are a friend-guest it can be a thoughtful baby shower gift for your friend who is expecting the baby.
Depending on your culture and traditions, this personalised baby book can be that special christening gift that you were looking for. If you want to go for a baptism gift where you can surprise your family friends with the infant and stand out with a personalised baby boy or baby girl gift, this is the way to go. Top it off with your dedication on the first page of the baby book, so those warm thoughts of yours stay with the parents and with the baby boy or baby girl throughout the first-year birthday and the toddler years at least. Besides a thoughtful baby name book, this personalised storybook can serve as a memory baby book, as the last pages, after the story of the first year of the baby boy or baby girl finishes, is all about baby keepsake book features or a baby boy memory book or baby girl memory, with sections as food you enjoyed the most, baby weight at birth, baby weight at first year, favourite nursery rhyme and many more. So, go ahead and send congratulations on the new baby to that special friend.
Godmother or Godfather: now you have a unique gift for your godson or for your goddaughter
If you are a godmother or godfather, you have important roles not only throughout the Christening process but also throughout the baby boy’s or baby girl’s entire life. It can be stressful thinking about baptism gifts from godmother, but supporting the affirmation of your godson or goddaughter, the kid development steps in the right direction and making sure it is a fun and enjoyable gift from godparents. The parents will appreciate the unique gift, as it is a personalised gift focusing solely on their baby and the baby’s and parents’ experience in the first year of life – what can be more touching for a parent than that. The future toddler will also enjoy the christening gift from godmother when the baby boy or baby girl becomes two years old or three years old or even four years old.

The baby’s first year birthday is a special one. As everything goes, first is always to be celebrated more than others. It is as important for the baby boy or baby girl as it is for their parents.

Child development applied. Which concepts you can find in the personalised baby book
The memory development of a baby or of a toddler is all about the myriad of associations made in the present or in the past. The baby brain or the toddler's brain can be impacted by anything from a smell, an image or a special feeling. It then goes forward to connect this cognitive content with similar content from the past. This re-experiencing for the baby girl or baby boy affects the way the babies perceive and process everything in their lives.
With our personalised storybook for baby or for a toddler, the parent or the carer of the baby can ask questions and foster memory recollection – this way, the baby or later on the toddler can retrieve pockets of memories and happenings from his baby past, which will support their minds process and understand better what is occurring to them right now.
Reading books with my baby: do you have realistic expectations?
Another question we get asked a lot is what to expect as a parent of an infant during reading the storybook to them. Between 3 and 6 months, the baby boy or baby girl will just sit there next to you or in your arms and listen to your voice while you read the baby book to them. At six months, the baby will most likely already aim to touch and grab the book, that is why the hardcover baby book version is better and resisting more. Around seven to nine months, the baby boy or baby girl will probably want to turn pages, while reducing the sit still listening part. A one-year-old boy or a one-year-old girl would most likely turn pages of their baby book, would point at the kid-friendly illustrations on each page, and perhaps imitate noises or feelings recognized in the book such as laughter or crying.
