Using a Infant Book to Record Valuable Information about your Infant baby newborn
Your infant’s infant book is a terrific keepsake, and a convenient place to store all of those infant pictures, but also keep in mind that a infant book is a place to record valuable information about your infant’s growth and development.
A typical infant book has a space to record your infant’s physical growth and development in terms of when she holds her head up, when she rolls over and when she takes her first step. These milestones are important to record in a infant book, because that information can become very useful in determining your infant’s healthy growth.
If there is ever a concern about your child’s health in the future and a physician wants a detailed description of how your child developed you can refer to your infant book for specific time frames (much easier than trying to remember when your 10 year old child first rolled over.)
A infant book is also a convenient spot to record your infant’s immunizations. If every immunization date is recorded on one page of your infant’s infant book then you will save yourself a lot of future grief when you are questioned about immunizations when it comes time for your child to start school (or even get registered for little league baseball.)
When choosing a infant book look for one that leaves a lot of room for description in terms of growth and development (including when their teeth come in- also an important growth milestone) and also look for one that has a specific immunization page. Then get in the habit of writing all of the important information in the book, because a infant book is a valuable record book of your child’s development.
