We designed this book for parents who want a simple, non-overwhelming way to capture the most meaningful moments from their child’s life.
The book’s prompts focus less on statistics and more on the heart - their ideas, passions, special talents, and funny quirks.
Spanning from birth to eighteen (including two pages for pregnancy) it includes yearly sections for birthdays, adventures, interests, and fun age-appropriate prompts.
Whether you’re a brand new parent or your child is a bit older and you want to “catch up” (it’s not too late!) this journal is designed to help you capture little windows into who your child is and who they are becoming.
- Smyth-sewn binding that will last for generations
- 80# text, partially recycled paper
- 6.75 x 8.75 inches
- Made in the U.S.
Less statistics. More heart.
After feeling guilty about missing time-sensitive things in our own kids' baby books, we spent a year designing a book focused less on documenting statistics and more on the things that actually matter - the moments, memories, and unique insights that we’d want to cherish for years to come.
Didn't start at the beginning?
Niether did we! The good news is, this is the journal where (with the help of old calendars, social media, photo reels) going back is actually possible. And remember, it doesn’t need to be perfect! It just needs to be heartfelt.
Built to last generations.
The goal is for this book to become an heirloom that gets passed on to future generations. For this reason, these books are made entirely in the US and we personally oversee every step from sourcing, printing, binding, and fulfillment. The covers are 100% cotton and use no plastics or artificial coating. Each book is individually bound using the smyth-sewn method, making them extremely flexible and virtually indestructible.
No-hassle return policy
Not sure if this journal is right for you? We get it, sometimes you just need to have it in your hands. Go ahead order the book, open it, flip through the pages, and if you decide it’s not the right fit for you simply send it back using our return portal . We only ask that the book be in its original condition, and for a small fee of $3 to help with return shipping costs.
This book is beautiful and timeless. It is so easy to jot down memories as they pop up. I can’t wait to have this on my nightstand for the rest of my life. I thought I’d give it to my son when he turns 18 and my husband goes “uhhh no this is ours forever!” Lol! I will be buying one of these for every child I may have and any baby shower someone else has. Love love love.
Great format that takes out intimidation
Great experience with ordering and shipping. I love the positive message that it’s ok if you’re behind and you can make this book as simple or elaborate as you need! We’ve only gotten through one year of our kid’s life (still have to do another for our other kid) but I feel this format of “baby book” is different and less overwhelming. My husband I plan to fill it out over date nights! I wish there were more color options. I LOVE the texture of the cover and pages are a nice thickness (good quality).
Love it! Got it for myself, my sister, and a close friend. Looking forward to journaling together!
It's structured but flexible. Elegant and simple. Love it! Thank you!
I did really poorly keeping track of milestones. Being a mama with little ones is HARD! Kept is a more modern version of the “milestone tracking,” and makes it easy to follow. It is by far my favorite way to keep memories of my little ones. My favorite section is where you can write cute/funny things that they say. Life happens so fast and Kept has allowed me to cherish those memories from when they’re small. I highly recommend for any first time Mama, or any mama really!
AMAZING childhood journal
I absolutely LOVE this journal. I have a 6 year old and this book has made it so easy to go back in time and jot down memories I have with my son from pregnancy til now. I love the family tree section that is a nice touch I don’t see in a lot of childhood books. I am going to keep this until my son turns 18 I will gift it to him (but honestly I don’t know if I’ll be able to part with it).
