Rated 5 out of 5 by from Journal for all time. . . I bought this baby journal for my daughter who just gave birth to a baby girl, my first grandchild. I used the same journal for her when she was an infant 31 years ago. The cover has been updated but the various sections remain the same. The journal provided a wonderful record of my daughter's early months and years and I hope it does the same for my granddaughter. The format allows for anecdotes and descriptive writing, not just a fill-in questionnaire. Anyone can write in it, and it was nice to see what both her father and I had entered in her journal, and there were entries she herself made at 3 or 4 years old.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Again and again I bought this book when visiting the Met while pregnant with my only child. Then someone gave it to me when he was born. I used the first one and treasured it. My son loved looking at it when he was older. When my first grandson was born, I used the extra book that I had kept all these years to record cute little anecdotes, and all the things that you think you will never forget, but do. For my second grandson, I thought I would do something different and got a different book. I hated it. There was nowhere to write the million little things I wanted him to know and smile at when he grows up. So here I am, back for another Baby Journal from the Met. Nothing else compares!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of Baby Journals It is uncanny reading the review that precedes mine, but I too, bought this journal following the birth of my daughter, 31 years ago. I purchased it in the gift shop of our local art gallery and returned many times after that to buy the journal as a baby gift (because I so enjoyed entering all those precious first moments) but to no avail, it was never stocked again. Last month my daughter gave birth to twin girls and she made a special request for the same journal for each of her babies. Thankfully for THE MET online store, I was once again able to find and purchase. I am gifting the journals at the baby shower, alongside my daughters journal that is full of memories. THANKYOU.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps remember the simple and the special I am so glad this book is still available for sale! For her upcoming birthday, I plan to give my pregnant daughter both the copy I completed for her during her childhood, and a brand new one for the soon-to-be-born daughter of hers. You can be very creative and have your children draw on blank pages, or chronicle favorite teachers over the years, or keep a record of holiday gifts. In other words, in addition to the prompts that are given, you can add so many things of your own. I even taped in fabric samples from clothes and room decor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Timeless! This was my baby book. In 1979, my mother bought this beautiful baby book while visiting New York. She must have purchased two copies since my younger sister has an identical book. I covet the sweet messages my mom and dad took the time to write. It is such a personal documentation and the book lends itself to the recorder by not limiting or labeling the entries. I asked my mother if she could find it once I was pregnant with our first baby. She was concerned it was out of print since our youngest sister didn't get one of these books. Lo and behold, she found it and bought four copies. Please continue to print this beautiful book. It is a keepsake that we would all like to keep passing down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A baby book for the ages I had this book in 1979 for our first baby. It's beautiful illustrations reminded me of my mother's baby book (1923), and so I got one for our first baby (daughter) in 1979. I loved it's illustrations, but also lots of room to really detail any special moments. And now, I'm getting it for our daughter's first baby too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The very best baby journal I was given this baby journal in 1980 when my daughter was born. I'm an artist and was delighted and charmed by the pen & ink illustrations. I filled the pages with all my thoughts and dreams for her and recorded the moments I didn't want to forget. In 2014 I was so very pleased to know that the Metropolitan Museum of Art store still carried this beautiful baby journal, and I gave it to my now grown daughter when she had her first baby daughter. The tradition lives on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful book I first purchased this book 29 years ago at the birth of my firstborn. Since then I have purchased it many times as a gift for new mothers. It is simple, sweet and charming. I can't imagine who wouldn't want one!
