If you’re anything like me, you’ll have moments when you feel like time is just flying by! Parenthood is such an incredible time in your life, you want to make sure you remember and document all those special moments! We have 4 amazing memory books to show you today from Blueberry + Co. A Baby Book, Adventures with Dad, Grandparents & Me and the latest one in the collection is Mum & Me!
The incredibly talented Chloe Watts, started her business Blueberry + Co when she was on maternity leave in 2015. She spent months searching for the perfect baby book for her new daughter. Chloe was after a unique book that would reflect her new baby’s growing personality and allow a tiny bit of creativity. As a result, fast forward a few sleep deprived months of feeding, sleeping and sketching and in November 2015 the Monochrome Baby Book was launched.
These memory books use Chloe’s sketches and love for all things funky and fun. They’re used to create modern memory books that can capture your precious moments. The idea was to give you the room to create something special.
The Monochrome Baby Book – rrp $49.95
This monochrome baby book has been designed with modern kids and parents in mind. Chloe wanted to give you the chance to record your child’s growing personality, free from gender stereotypes and fluffy animals. Well… almost free from fluffy animals!
So, you can record your pregnancy, your family history, baby shower and the birth all the way through to 5 years old. Write a note about all the big milestones like birthdays, teething, crawling, walking and sleeping. That is, if you’re lucky enough to have a baby that sleeps?
They’ve even left some pages at the back for you record your own firsts with photos. The first trip to the snow, first boat ride, first friends… you choose!
This book is printed on quality 200gsm recycled paper, with a 350gsm cover, and spiral bound to make it easy to fill out. It expands with all your photos. It’s all in black and white (hence the name Monochrome Baby Book!). This means you can add your own style (using pens, pencils and photos) or leave it as it is.

My Grandparents & Me – rrp $39.95
We’ve created a modern grandparents book for all of our kids amazing hipster grandparents who love cafes, Masterchef and cycling. Let’s face it, in today’s modern world, these wonderful people (our own parents) for the most part shoulder a large proportion of the care giver role with our children. That’s why we created this book- we want to thank our parents for the love and attention they give our children.
The Grandparents in our children’s lives give them so much love and support and help us become better parents. Our children have a wonderfully rich childhood full of love and laughter because of them and we want their stories and adventures together to last.
We’ve designed this book to be filled in by one child, one grandparent OR a whole brood of children and ALL of their grandparents. Families are complex things so we want to keep our books as flexible as possible.
