There is something special about looking back on milestones and seeing when your baby took her first steps or when he cut his first tooth. My children are 13 and 10 and apart from a few videos of them first crawling and taking their first bite of solid foods, I don't have anything that documents all their firsts. And my second child... well, there's hardly any photos, let alone sleeping schedules!
I so wish Tiddlers and Nippers were around when my children were babies. This fantastic range of journals record your baby’s daily activities and milestones so that you can identify patterns and plan feeding and sleeping schedules, as well as coordinating care with helpers / relatives, or as a reference point during health visitations. It's not just a memory journal - it's more than that. These journals record the core activities in your little ones daily lives in order to compare against previous days.
My daughter struggled with feeding and we needed to track what she drank as she was losing weight rapidly. Instead of scribbling down on a piece of paper, these journals would have given us a space to record her intake and compare over the weeks. it would have been so much easier and a lot less stress.
The range of tracking journals by Tiddlers and Nippers was designed for parents to move through each journal consecutively, as their little one grows and develops (i.e. tiddler tracker (0-6m) to tiddler weaning tracker (6m +) to tiddler toddler tracker (12m +). These are the only age group targeted range of baby / toddler tracking journals currently available in the UK. Plus they are beautifully designed too. A stationery lovers dream!
The journals were developed to facilitate tracking of multiple data - so feeds, sleeps, nappy changes, activities and milestones. The difference here is that only one tracking journal is needed instead of multiples. Why use 3 books when you could use 1?
Another fundamental selling point is that they are paper based (and not digital). The books are keepsakes of milestones and memories from those precious early days in a child’s life. Something that baby tracking apps aren’t able to provide. Fast forward 10 years from now, when your child is more interested in her favourite YouTube stars than spending time with you...! These keepsake journals, will be such a gift to cherish. Memories that will flood back taking you back in time to this moment again.
Time is precious, it goes too fast, and we'll never have those moments again. Lock them up in a Tiddlers and Nippers tracking journal to be relived again and again.
