Wouldn’t you though?
Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest Wouldnt you though features here.
Anyone who’s had a baby will remember those wonderful/awful early weeks on zero sleep, trying to ‘work’ out your gorgeous squidgy new family member, and attempting some kind of feeding routine.
I used to write feed times on scraps of paper that I’d then promptly lose again. I wish I’d had one of these lovely Baby Feeding Books – a feeding journal to chart your baby’s Michelin-eating schedule that also doubles as a nostalgic keepsake.
It’s been created by – who else? – a mother-and-daughter team based in Oxfordshire, and is exquisitely hand-finished with a ribbon bookmark and thread-sewn, semi-hard A5 cover that lies flat so that it’s easy to write in. Clever eh?
There is a section for mum’s notes, so plenty of space for psychotic spidery doodles and ‘can’t cope!’ confessions (*sigh* we’ve all had them). Plus there are charts to document your baby’s weaning progress, a record of his or her gifts, and a keepsake pocket at the back.
The Baby Feeding Book isn’t exactly a bargain purchase – £22 plus P&P, so it’s in babyshower or newborn gift territory (in other words, you don’t have to be having one to buy one!).
But you can keep your money in your pocket for now, because as it happens I have 5 of to give away to lovely Muddy readers. So if you fancy winning or gifting one, just email me at email@example.com with your name and address – it’s first come, first served on this one, so I’ll get back in touch if you’re fast enough!
