Beautiful and Easy!

I will be a first-time mom and between my job and everything else going on in life, I was worried I would not be able to keep up with a baby book, which was creating a lot of anxiety and guilt. I’m also the kind of person who does not particularly enjoy writing (not to mention I HATE my own handwriting), and I’m also not a fan of those traditional/cutesy baby books. I was looking for an app that was not only quick and painless, but would also give me a beautiful and professional looking product at the end. I wanted something to proudly display in my living room that doesn’t scream “baby”. The Short Years is perfect if you love the minimalist feel as it’s very simple, clean, and presents a really beautiful layout. I am still building my first chapter so haven’t had anything printed just yet, but I love that I can preview my pages beforehand and know what they’ll look like when shipped to me. I also love that I only pay a one-time charge in the beginning and that is it—there’s no monthly fee like you find with other apps. You just tell them when you’re ready to have your pages printed and they ship it for free.

I feel confident that I’ll actually be able to complete a book for my first child which I know will be enjoyed by family and friends for years to come. Thank you for taking away the burden and making this an enjoyable task for busy moms!

Genius idea!! Highly recommend!

This concept is an excellent idea. I have so many “memory” type books and journals that require you to write your responses in. I don’t think I’ve finished a single book and now they sit half filled out on a bookshelf. Having an app that splits the questions up into just a few weekly prompts is beyond helpful! I had so much mom guilt leading up to the birth because I hadn’t purchased a baby book yet. Researching different books knowing I wouldn’t be able to fill them out entirely was exhausting and causing me some anxiety and guilt. I stumbled upon this app and book concept and knew this was something I could manage! I love the simple design of the book, the ability to add many pictures (straight from your phone!!), and the types of prompts it asks you. Know I can fill out my daughter’s baby book from the drive thru, bathtub, early morning feeds, etc. It has been wonderful and I no longer feel guilty about not having something for her to look at when she is older. A bonus is that my husband can log on and answer some of the questions/add pictures, too. I have recommended this app to my other soon-to-be-mommy friends and will continue to do so. Thank you!!!

Highly recommend!

I was highly recommended this product by a friend. She regretted not knowing about this with her first child because she is now trying to fill in and remember all the milestones when she’s already 1 year old!

I purchased this for myself when I was still pregnant with my first child. I was able to get a head start on the first sections and get myself familiar with the app before my little one made her arrival. Now it’s so easy to just grab my phone and record all the little milestones she’s quickly going through! Whenever I’m feeding, on-the-go, or just holding her while watching tv, I just easily open the app and fill in small parts of the book. It literally only takes a few minutes out of your day. I love seeing the pages build as I go! And once I’m ready to have my pages printed and mailed, it only takes a click of a button.

It’s such a useful and simple product that allows you to capture all those special moments of your child’s life as they happen. And to be able to easily translate those memories into a book that you can keep forever?? Amazing!! Definitely gifting this to those expecting mother’s in my life.
