Giveaway: Rosie Bear Handmade Baby Journal

Having a baby (especially your first) can really throw your once normal life into utter chaos!  The first few days of having a newborn at home were amazing, scary, wonderful and sleepless all rolled into one.  I felt like I needed to gain some sort of control over the disarray and I started making lists for EVERYTHING!  I had a feeding list, a wet diaper list, a poopy list, a sleep schedule list all on separate pieces of paper so when I went for our first Pediatrican visit, I would be prepared to answer all the new Mom questions.  Even though my methods were a little disorganized in itself, having everything jotted down made me feel like I was in control (even if I really wasn’t!).

Looking back, it would have been great to have a baby journal with printed pages for all the lists I was keeping all neatly bound in an adorable book.  Rosie Bear has developed an “Aunt LaLa’s Log” handmade baby journal which includes page designs to keep all your important baby happenings in one place.


Each log includes 90 days of daily logs to get your through that newborn stage.  The pages help you keep track of feedings, diapers, sleep patterns and medical records.  There is even a place to chart growth as well as “runny noses and ouchies.”  Rosie Bear has patterns for boys, girls, twins and gender neutral which makes this handmade baby journal a great baby shower gift!


Have a need to get organized?  Rosie Bear has generously offered one lucky reader a book of their choice!
