Being a first time mom can be really stressful and nerve wracking. I remember how overwhelmed I felt after my first daughter Olivia was born. There just seemed like there was so much to do and so many things to keep track of. I’d like to introduce you to a product that I wish I had back then. It would have made my life so much easier!
Aunt LaLa’s Log is a stylish, handmade baby journal specifically designed to keep track of every diaper change, feeding and nap that a newborn has during it’s first three months of life. It’s an absolute essential for every new mom. This special journal is made by the company, RosieBear, owned by two sisters- Deena “Rosie” and Lisa “Bear”. They have come together to make must have products for new moms.
The idea for Aunt LaLa’s Log came after Rosie had her first baby in 2005. She had prepared herself for her little one but only to a certain point. The nurses expected her to keep track of every meal, pee, poop and nap that her baby had. She found herself writing on every scrap paper she could find. The lack of organization was making her feel stressed! A nighttime nurse at the hospital made a chart for Rosie on a piece of paper that would help her keep track of everything. Bear took the chart home and made a template on the computer and bound it in a journal. When Rosie came home with her little one, she presented her with a hand bound little journal. They began making the journals for baby showers for their friends and the idea quickly caught on and in February 2009 Rosie and Bear went into business!
I received Aunt LaLa’s Log for a boy in the Graffiti design. It features 90 pages of daily charts, a general information page for emergency contact info, ouchies page for noting medicine administered and a growth chart. As I said before, I wish I would have had one of these journals when I had my girls. I can definitely see how they would be a huge help to a new mom. They are a big help when you go to a doctor’s visit and they ask how your baby is peeing and pooping and all you need to do is open your Aunt LaLa’s and you have your answer.
I loved the journal’s stylish design and the range of cute design choices they have. The journal is small enough to fit in a diaper bag or a larger purse. It’s something that you can take with you while you are on the go. I think Aunt LaLa’s Log would be the perfect baby shower gift. It’s both unique and functional and something every new mom can use during their baby’s first three months of life.
