What’s inside? Well-thought-out pages serve as a guide so that recording baby’s precious moments is stress-free. The prompted pages cover memories and milestones from pregnancy through baby’s first three years with plenty of extra room for photos and keepsakes. Take a peek inside (PDF). A combination of screw post binding and pages that are printed only on one side allows for pages to be easily removed or rearranged without losing any detail. As a companion to the Baby Book, our collection of Additional Insert Page packs makes it easy to accommodate all family situations, including traditional families, same-sex parents, single parents, adopted children and twins.

Ideas & Inspiration
A “go-to gift”: The perfect personalized gift that can be completely customized even after the baby is born! A precious gift from mother to child sharing their journey. A heartfelt gift from the grandparents when adding the Grandparents Insert Pages. Or even the perfect gift from miles away! All books come gift wrapped along with the ability to write a gift message making it the perfect gift to send when you can’t be there in person. It’s fun for us when we hear great stories from our customers, like the grandmother who was ordering her sixth book and counting!

A thoughtful surrogacy present: We work with a surrogacy agency that gives our books as gifts to their parents. Build this gift by adding the Surrogacy Insert Pages and also the Two Moms/Two Dads, Single Mom or Single Dad Insert Pages to the order as they apply. The feedback we’ve received is that parents are very touched and excited to receive such a personal gift.
Expanding your book: The Tessera Memory Books are designed with small cardboard spacers added to the binding. Simply remove the cardboard spacer to add one or two Insert Page packs to your book. If you are adding more than 30 additional pages, we recommend leaving the cardboard spacers in place and using the screw post extensions that come with your book.
Places, Activities & Memories: The Places, Activities & Memories Insert Pages are an easy way to add a family trip or event to your book. It’s a quick way to document something without having to give it too much thought or effort – a few details and a picture (additional pictures can also be added to the back of the page) and it’s done. I keep a small stack of these at home and try to quickly fill them out after a trip or event. It’s also easy to duplicate the pages to add to the Memory Books for each of my children.
