Then I stumbled upon a few loose leaf baby books and I realized that they would be the perfect compromise for me. A loose leaf baby book is in the style of a ring binder, with hole punched pages. This would give me the freedom to rearrange the pages, add in extra pages or remove pages I didn't like. It also meant that in the future I could simply take out all the pages and put it into a scrap book of my choosing. Could it be anymore perfect for me? I think not! Loose leaf baby books are usually a bit more expensive than baby books with a regular binding but I think the benefits of the loose leaf binding are so worth it!
After shopping around for a while I came to the conclusion that I preferred the baby books by CR Gibson the best. Although I am not into pink and ultra feminine trims, I still fell in love with the Bella Loose leaf baby book by CR Gibson
It also has some blank pages in the back as well as clear sheet protectors for storing letters, cards and other keepsake paperwork such as ultrasound prints.
I ordered it online and my number one concern was that it wouldn't look as good in person as it did online, but when I received it, it was even better in person!
In addition to that, I try to make the time to fill in the rest of her baby book by adding pictures, important dates and funny stories. I know it seems time consuming but it doesn't have to be. I work on it at my own pace and its really beautiful to see her baby book progressing into a memorable work of art!
