Free baby diary: The Best Journal Apps for Recording Your Baby’s First Year


The Best Journal Apps for Recording Your Baby’s First Year

I have a confession: I own three separate journals for chronicling my son’s first year, and I haven’t managed to keep up beyond the first few pages of each. One day my son will look back and find a very good record of his first three months of life—but may wonder if he was kidnapped by aliens shortly thereafter.

As for those cute milestone photos, the ones where he’s holding a card that announces his birthday each month? I only managed to remember to snap the pics about every other month. Sorry, babe.

I know I’m going to regret my lackluster efforts to record the moments that make these first few years so special. Yet as a working mom, I can barely find time to make a healthy dinner, get my son in bed each evening and spend an hour chatting with my husband (and going over our schedule for the next few days and weeks). Almost every night I sneak a guilty glance at the journal, and then I look at the TV—and Comedy Central beckons.

What if marking those milestones and organizing all the various photos were a bit easier? Well, as the saying goes, there’s an app for that. Enter the digital journal.

Today’s journaling apps allow parents to edit photos, organize them by date, record milestones and privately share all of that info with friends and family—all at the touch of a smartphone. If you want a hard copy of your favorite memories, the apps links with stores that allow you to edit your entries and purchase books.

We gave some of the most popular journaling apps a spin. Here’s our verdict.

What we love:

One of the most highly-rated online journals just for parents, this powerful app earns top marks for its wide range of features and easy-to-use interface. With just one click, you can upload a photo, video, milestone or simply a note. A calendar keeps all of the info organized by date. Want to add a special touch to your photos? Built-in editing capabilities allow you to add filters, stickers, text and a range of effects. If you’re a social media addict, the app allows you to share your moments on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. If you prefer privacy, it also allows you to connect with family and friends within the app and can even send emails to grandparents who may not be quite so digitally savvy. If you want a hard copy, Tinybeans links to a print shop where you can purchase everything from phone cases (starting at $30) to photo books (starting at $45).
The downside: Though the app is free for Apple and Android devices, you’ll have to splurge on the premium version ($50/year) if you want to upload multiple photos or videos at once.

What we love: Similar to Tinybeans, this app (now owned by camera giant Canon) allows parents to upload snaps and stories and share the journal privately with family and friends. We like that the app allows you to add siblings, and that you can quickly zoom to a specific age, and even compare stages. Photobooks are easy to create and start at $30.

The biggest bonus? You can download up to 1 GB of photos and videos on your computer for free (the app is free for iPhone, iPad and Android devices).
The downside: If you’re looking to add flourishes to your pictures, Lifecake offers limited photo-editing capabilities.

What we love: Though this journaling app isn’t geared specifically toward parents, it does offer many of the same functions of its kid-focused compatriots: You can add photos and stories, and entries are organized by date and easily searchable. The app is an Editor’s Pick in the Apple Store, earning praise for its elegant interface and ability to synch between an iPad, iPhone and Mac. Don’t have time to type? Day One’s voice recognition capabilities allow you to dictate entries on the go. It even geotags your entry with your current location and makes a note of the current weather. Recent updates allow users to upload up to 30 photos per entry and keep multiple journals (if you understandably would like to keep a record of your personal non-kid related thoughts and activities).

The downside: The app doesn’t support video and is only available to iPhone users ($5).

‎Baby Tracker – Newborn Log on the App Store

Introducing the redesigned Baby Tracker app version 4, the all-in-one scheduling resource for new parents.

Free Printable Baby Journal and Monthly Tracker –

There are so many things to keep up with when you have a new baby. To be honest, most of it is a blur. Today I’ve got a free printable baby journal and monthly tracker to help you keep track of all the wonderful memories of baby’s first year.

Even though I had done this newborn life two times previously at this point, my daughter’s first year of life simply flew by. Those first 4 or 5 months of sleep deprivation were insanely hard but it all still happened so fast! Before you knew it we were celebrating her first birthday!

One way to keep track of everything that is happening during the newborn phase is to have a baby journal near by. It helps to keep track of the wet and dirty diapers especially when you are trying to survive the early months.  I can’t tell you the amount of times I’ve lost track of the dirty diapers, or have called my husband at work to see if there was a dirty diaper I missed in the middle of the night.

Feedings Tracker

Keeping track of feedings is key! Whether you are breastfeeding or formula feeding, there is a part of the journal that helps you  keep track of how many ounces or how long that baby has fed on each breast.

There is also a section for naps (to keep track of patterns), notes for the day and tummy time. I can openly admit that I was terrible at making sure the baby had tummy time

This is also helpful for babysitters–when my mom would stay with the baby I’d need a whole run down when I got back home. This makes it easy to keep track of everything.

Feeding times are extra important too, especially for the parents that run shifts in the household. When everyone is on the same page, baby gets fed ON TIME!

Features of the baby journal include:

There are so many ways to keep up with baby!

–I am _____ long

–I love to:

–I can say:

–I weigh:

–My favorite food is:

–I am funny when I ____

–My parents want to be sure to remember:

Month By Month Printable Signs For Pictures

This printable baby journal also comes with a sign for every month of the baby’s first year! You can print them out, put it next to the baby and take a picture for a quick keepsake.

Did/Do you keep track of baby’s daily activities?

The Top Baby Tracker Apps

You don’t have to be a parent to know that baby tracker apps are having a serious moment—I first heard of them when a co-worker told me her friend was sharing daily photos of her baby with her through Tinybeans (it’s adorable).

These helpful services often act as a virtual baby book that you can share with family and friends without needing to post on social media, which is particularly clutch if you’re wary about sharing too much online. These apps can also help you track everything from daily feedings to all the firsts—steps, haircut, teeth, the works.

Plus, they can sync up the schedules of busy parents to eliminate the guesswork around the last diaper change or what the little one weighed last week. And most of these apps update in real-time, so your partner or caretaker is always up to date, even if they don’t happen to be home at the moment.  


This helpful app allows you to share a virtual baby book of photo updates with family and friends. No scheduling here—simply upload your images, and the app will send photo updates to your loved ones via email. With the Milestone section, you can track your little’s important moments. Plus, the app’s photo-editing abilities are superb, so you don’t have to touch Photoshop.

You can order prints or custom photo books right through Tinybeans.

Cost: Free; the premium plan is $8 per month or $50 per year

Baby Tracker

Many moms on Reddit said they liked the Baby Tracker app. In our opinion, it’s one of the most practical—it tracks feedings, helps you remember diaper changes, and recognizes sleep patterns (naps, too). The Milestones section lets you write a journal entry and include a photo, while the Health section keeps track of immunizations, doctor visits, and the like. Bonus points: “They allow export of your data, so at least you’d be able to store it in case it doesn’t exist in a few years,” one parent notes on Reddit.

Cost: Free; upgrade to the full version for $4.99

Sprout Baby

“I tried multiple apps…but Sprout was the winner by far. It allows me to track literally everything. 100% recommend,” writes one Reddit parent. Yes, Sprout Baby has all of the standard diaper, feeding, and sleep trackers as other apps, but it also has the option to make a medical PDF to bring to your doctor visits (how cool). Plus, a customized homepage means your child’s growth is tracked on a monthly basis.

Cost: Free with a two-week premium trial; upgrade to the premium version for $4.99

Glow Baby

Glow Baby was created with the first year of your child’s life in mind, offering 101 trackable milestones. It logs things like diaper changes while making it fun and entertaining from a graphics standpoint. It can also send personalized tips to your phone every day, so you never miss any important milestones. And if you want to connect with other parents, there’s an in-app community ready for you to start chatting.

Cost: Free; premium membership is $7.99 on a month-to-month basis

Baby Connect

In addition to all the standard functionalities, Baby Connect also keeps tabs on your baby’s mood, temperature, and even the game they are playing. What’s particularly helpful is the ability to set alarms for feedings, naps, and so forth. Some parents say that they love the data capabilities and that you can also log in from your computer, not just your phone. “It saved part of my sanity,” notes one Reddit user. As any new parent knows, sanity is tough to come by.

Cost: $4.99; plans start at $8.99 per month

Hatch Baby

All the techies are going crazy for Hatch Baby since you can connect the app with the Hatch Baby Grow and Smart Changing Pad (a changing pad and smart scale all in one). When you do this, Bluetooth technology measures how much your baby eats at each sitting and how much they weigh. Another cool capability is the slideshow option that allows you to take a photo every day to see how your little one is growing. It’s kind of like watching a flipbook of your baby.

Cost: Free; smart changing pad is $130

The Short Years

8. My baby isn’t a baby anymore! Can I still use The Short Years to make a baby book?

Absolutely! It’s never too late to create a beautiful baby book for your child.  We have lots of mamas working on baby books for their toddlers or older children.  Once you’ve created your account, just go to the “Chapters” tab in the App and select the chapter you’d like to work on first.  You can select “Page Edit Mode” to view the chapter as a whole and add your photos and text directly to the pages!

9. What if I want to make baby books for more than one child?

Perfect!  The Short Years Baby Book App is designed to allow you to work on baby books for multiple children at the same time.  Just tap the plus (+) icon in the top right corner of the “Chapters” tab to add your second child (to get to the Chapters tab, tap on “Chapters”–it’s the bottom, middle option)!  You can toggle between your two (or more) children’s books by tapping the circle with their photo in it on the Chapters tab.   Tap the plus icon again to add additional children.

10. What topics will The Short Years baby book include?

Once completed, your book will consist of nineteen chapters, covering topics like: pregnancy or adoption, birth, baby’s family, milestones, baby’s first birthday, and one chapter devoted to the sweet moments of each month of baby’s first year.

11. What if I don’t love it?

If your book is damaged or defective, please send us a message within one week of receiving it so we can make it right! If you would like to return your book for any other reason, you can do so up until 30 days after the date of your order. Books must be unused and in original condition.

12. What is your price adjustment policy?

We offer a one-time price adjustment if an item is marked down within the 7 days following your order.

13. How do I fill the chapters out?

When it comes to baby ages, some people use months and some use weeks, so we made the book accommodate for either!

Here is a little chart to help you see what time frame each chapter can cover. This is based off a baby with a January 1st birthday:

Birthdate: Jan. 1
Newborn: Weeks 0-4 / Jan 1-Feb 1
Month One: Weeks 4-8 / Feb 1-March 1
Month Two: Weeks 8-12 / March 1-April 1
Month Three: Weeks 12-16 / April 1-May 1
Month Four: Weeks 16-20 / May 1-June 1
and so on until…Month Twelve: Weeks 48-52//Jan 1-Feb 1

*If you are using months (not weeks), and it bothers you that Month Twelve covers baby’s birthday and the month beyond it, just don’t fill out the Newborn chapter at all. Rather, start with Month One as Jan. 1-Feb. 1. Doing so will ensure Month Twelve is the month leading up to baby’s first birthday!

90,000 Read Children’s Book of War – Diaries 1941-1945 online (completely and free)


We say “war” – and we mean “big words” feat, patriotism, Motherland… So it was accepted. But we want to get away from the template, to look where the ray of light rarely reached, because, in fact, apart from the name of the banner of Tanya Savicheva and the five pioneer heroes, we do not know about the “war of children” – nothing. Yes, they put out lighters on the roofs, yes, they dug potatoes and worked in the gardens, yes, they wrote letters home under the dictation of wounded soldiers about hospitals, yes, they knitted warm mittens … But what happened to their world, the world of a child, shaken by hunger, devastation , death of loved ones, elders? They, still alive, can remember now, share memories – but nothing will be as vivid and reliable as diary entries.That is why we took on this genre. For us, the journalists of “AiF”, who conceived this work – to collect these texts under one cover, which was not done either in the USSR or in modern Russia – contact with the children’s world of the war years turned out to be a shock. And we want you to experience it too. We collected everything we could. Archival documents, family relics that have already seen the light of the book … There were 35 of them. Thirty-five diaries of Soviet children. None is like the others. From the rear, from the occupied territories, from ghettos and concentration camps, from besieged Leningrad and from Nazi Germany.Thirty-five different wars …

Completely different in texture, children’s diaries decorate with the neighborhood of “big” and “small”: “I learned algebra. Ours surrendered the Eagle. ” These are real epics, “War and Peace” – in the student’s notebook. It’s amazing how a child’s gaze holds on to peaceful “little things”, how the beat of “normal” life is felt even in the occupation and blockade: a girl writes about the first lipstick, a boy – about the first attraction. Children – one and the same! – write about books: Jules Verne and Gorky, school curriculum and family reading, libraries and home relics…. They write about friendship. And of course – about love. The first, cautious, timid, not completely trusting even an intimate diary …

In general, with them, with our heroes, everything is for the first time. For the first time a diary, for the first time – a war, they do not have the experience of older generations, there is no grafting of life, they have everything – on a living thread, for real, and it seems to us that their testimonies are the most honest when it comes to inner peace and reflection in themselves the big world.

The diaries we have collected are not only different in content, they are also different in “execution”.We have at our disposal pages of a loose-leaf calendar, and notebooks, and general notebooks with calico covers, and school notebooks in a box, and small albums with a palm … We have long and short diaries. Detailed and not very detailed. Stored in the storerooms of archives, museum funds, there are family relics in the hands of the readers of the newspaper.

One of the readers, having heard our call to provide children’s diaries, sat down and wrote down his youthful memories over the weekend, carefully bringing them to the editorial office on Monday.And we thought: after all, it may be that no one asked him over all these years: “Grandfather, how was it there?” what is the work that “Aif” took upon itself. It is not just to show the war through the eyes of a child, through the prism of a child’s perception of the world – innocent, touching, naive and matured so early, but to stretch a thread from every heart that beats now to a heart that survived the main catastrophe of the 20th century, to a person, even if he died – but did not surrender , who survived, a small person, perhaps the same age, but who saw the most terrible pages of history, which, it seems, was recently, or maybe already a long time ago… This thread will tie. And maybe he will. So that the world does not end. This turns out to be fragile.

Editorial staff of the weekly “Argumenty i Fakty”


Children endure war differently than adults. And they record this war and everything connected with it, all its horrors and shocks, they are in a different way. Probably because children are reckless. Children are naive, but at the same time they are honest, first of all to themselves.

The diaries of military children are evidence of amazing observation and merciless frankness, often impossible for an adult.Children noticed the phenomena of everyday life, signs of war more accurately than adults, they reacted better to all the changes that were taking place. Their diaries are closer to the ground. And therefore their testimonies, their proofs are sometimes much more important for historians than the diaries of adults.

One of the scariest chapters in this book is the very first. The most terrible thing for children in besieged Leningrad, as far as I could see then, was the bombing and shelling, dark streets and courtyards, where there was no lighting at night. The explosions of bombs and shells – it was a visible, graphic death, to which they could not get used.

But the human death that surrounded them on the streets and in their homes, they perceived more calmly than adults, and did not feel such fear and despair in front of it, perhaps simply because they did not understand it, did not relate it to themselves.

But the children had their own fears. And the worst thing, as it turned out, was hunger for them. It was much more difficult for them than for adults to endure it, they still did not know how to force themselves, persuade, and from that they suffered more. This is why so many lines and pages in their diaries are devoted to thoughts of food, hunger pangs – and subsequent pangs of conscience…

What were these diaries for them, those who wrote them? Almost every diary reads: “my best friend”, “my only advisor” … They don’t write in a diary – they talk to a diary. There is no creature closer on Earth than this calico-covered notebook, a drawing pad, an album with the palm of your hand … And this closeness, this need – often it arises precisely on the first day of the war, when many of the diaries published in this book were started.

Contact with the children’s world of those war years is a deeply personal matter for me.

While working on the “Book of Blockade”, Ales Adamovich and I realized that the most reliable feelings and behavior of the blockade were expressed in children’s diaries. These diaries were not easy to find. But we did find some strikingly detailed ones. And it turned out that, as a rule, a person kept a diary without even hoping to survive. But at the same time, he understood the uniqueness of the Leningrad blockade and wanted to capture his testimony about it.

In an era of reassessment of the most important human values, when Nazi torchlight processions are marching across Europe again, evidence such as the diaries of the children of war is extremely important.They bring us back to themselves, to the land on which we were born … And if today someone is not penetrated by the testimonies of adults, then maybe they will understand the words of children. And today’s children will hear better the voices of their peers, and not adults who broadcast from high stands. After all, it is one thing when the teacher at the blackboard tells you about the war, and quite another thing when your school friend does it. Even with a difference of 70 years.

Of course, we are all afraid, we are afraid, we do not want a new war. Reading the diaries of children who survived the past war, you understand this horror even more.And inevitably you start to think: could we really live without war for only seven decades? Only seven decades of the world! After all, this is so little.

Daniil GRANIN, writer, participant of the Great Patriotic War, honorary citizen of St. Petersburg


We lived on the Petrograd side in the once most beautiful and wealthy city in the world, the former capital of the Russian Empire.

It was unbearable for a long time. But as if yesterday.And sometimes it seems to me that even today – everything is so clear before my eyes … The howl of a siren. The ticking of a metronome that came from the loudspeakers. It was a warning about the shelling of the city or about its bombing. And then the metronome was always replaced by bravura, cheerful music that affected our souls like a requiem. Hunger. At first, despite the great weakness, the head was very clear … Then at times you begin to lose consciousness, the perception of reality is disturbed …
