he first year of parenthood is momentous – a tiny hapless being emerges and in 12 months turns into a fully-fledged human being. You can’t slow down the clock, but documenting the journey is invaluable. This Baby Journal makes a truly refreshing change from the usual saccharine fare facing new parents.

Bright, joyous watercolours by award winning illustrator Yasmeen Ismail provide the perfect frame for thoughts and reflections. Interactive suggestions and checklists run alongside helpful tips, lullaby lyrics, and weaning recipes. The journal is printed on different paper stocks interleaved with one another, and includes little envelopes in which to place mementos. A beautiful gift for new parents.
