Glow Baby - Baby's First Journal Review - Contest!

The cutest thing arrived in the mail today!
Baby's First Journal by Glow Baby


I know when I had Amber my head was spinning - I was 20, new mom, totally unsure of what I was doing and had tons of questions for my mom. This would have been so handy to have by my side, almost like an extra hand to just note things in. I breastfed Amber for awhile and then we switched to bottles - we had to watch her intake as she wasn't getting enough at first to wet her diapers... that didn't last for long lol she was one chunky baby!

As a mom of a 13yr old and trying to get pregnant again - I know I'd need this to help me through again. Keep me on track, for others helping out - especially for dad to keep up.

When Amber was little I did have a piece of paper that I wrote on and it always seemed to get lost or I'd stick it on the fridge and it would get covered up or got lost easily in the diaper bag.

Not this! It's large enough to write in and see what you actually write lol - the hard cover won't tear off and neither will the pages inside. It's durable, large enough to be seen in a diaper bag and extremely mom friendly - to both breastfeeding and bottle fed babies!

You can see inside the details of how you can utilize it...


My thoughts immediately went to babysitter issues - this would be perfect to leave on the counter and have them fill out while I'm out and about - that way I can see what happened while I was gone.

Or detailing information that happened that day - first laugh, rolled over - and be able to go back and record it the baby book when you have time.

Even with a double sided contact page - all your numbers for baby are at your fingertips.



About Glow Baby
Founded in Toronto by Lindsay Harris, Glow Baby is dedicated to providing unique and user friendly scheduling tools for today’s busy parents. As a mother of two young daughters, Ainsley and Juliet, Lindsay quickly came to appreciate the difficulties of caring for a toddler while at the same time making sure the needs of her newborn were met.

One of the first tools Lindsay developed to help her through this difficult period was a tracking log for Juliet’s basic needs such as feeding, sleeping, diapering and bathing. The tracking enabled Lindsay to better understand Juliet’s patterns and to support a schedule that made everyone’s lives easier, while at the same time reducing stress.

While the journal would be GREAT if I were expecting, it's definitly a great gift item for all the pregos around me! However, for my personal use, I would have to say that the Medicine pad is EXCELLENT!!! My youngest is allergic to eggs and has asthma. We found this out when she was 16 months. During the season changes each year, my DD has breathing treatments, allergy meds, nasal sprays, etc. all as maintenance drugs. This is awesome to have for daycare and for ourselves when we have forgotten what we've already given her! Right now, we use "word of mouth" or yellow stickies that end up anywhere but, on any countertop surface (usually under my shoe, under a table, in the garbage because the kids where "cleaning", etc.) Thanks! jr4mni@yahoo.com

For us, the babysitter pad would be perfect! We have 5 children ages 9mo, 2, 3, 5, and 8 so it would be wonderful to have something that the babysitter could use to keep everything straight among the chaos of watching 5 kids at once. Erika slay315@aol.com

For me the Baby's First Foods would be so perfect. My older 2 both had food sensitivities and this baby has already shown milk/soy protein intolerance so introducing solids has always been challenging for us. Having a place to keep track of everything as we go through that process would be great. What a good idea to create that type of journal. Michelle (mnwwwicks@hotmail.com)
