The book has a page for each of the first 12 months, then one page per year through the age of 5. One parent pointed out that the fill-in-the-blank spaces make it easy for even less creative individuals to make a meaningful and beautiful baby book. However, it has been noted that this book is more suited to traditional family types and often prompts photos or information about parents and grandparents that suggests that these couples are still together. Some parents may find this to be a little uncomfortable at times. Overall, though, this is a beautiful and simple to use memory book that will keep track of baby’s special moments and accomplishments for years to come!

If there is probable cause that a toddler could have a developmental delay or developmental disability, a trained, certified specialist can give a proper evaluation (in some cases, more than one) to get a good idea of what could possibly be wrong. This can help direct the parent to proper organizations, services and support groups that can help to educate and function through this experience.
