Reviews - What do customers think about Love Letters to My Baby?
buy it early on in the pregnancy! Dec 14, 2008
This is a great little book, I just wish I'd gotten it when I was FIRST pregnant, rather than just before my baby was born. I don't remember some of the early stuff well enough to write it down, and frankly, I don't have time now that I'm a new mom. So this would NOT be a good shower gift, but would be a great gift if a girlfriend/daughter/sister just found out she was pregnant.
Best Journal Ever! Feb 2, 2008
I got this gift for my wife. She wrote in it everyday and is a special time for her to talk and read to the baby. Now the baby is here she reads what she was thinking and it calms the baby down.
I love how it mentions that there are scriptures(one review states how they wished it mentionied it, it was) and the information about the book was identical for the product that we recieved.
We now give this book to anyone that announces there pregnancy!
Wonderful Gift! Jul 10, 2007
A girlfriend gave me this book in the beginning of my pregnancy. It provided a special opportunity to share my love and thoughts with my daughter before she was here and continue to write meaningful messages to her through the introductory statements for each letter to baby. I recently bought it to give to three women who are expecting. This book is unique in that it explicitly provides ways to share God's love and your thoughts on God with your child.
Something I look forward to giving my daughter when she's older May 2, 2006
I received this book as a gift when my daughter was born. I've enjoyed every moment of writing in this book to my daughter and I can't wait until the day when she's old enough that I can pass this on to her. It will definitely be something special she can cherish as much as I cherish her.
Look at the "see inside" feature to review the book Feb 27, 2006
I agree that this book is absolutely Christian. It's too bad that people have bought it without knowing that, and ended up resenting that aspect of it. I had the opportunity to read through it at the bookstore, so I was well aware of the nature of the book.
It is beautiful and celebrates the joy of motherhood. I felt excited writing such special things to my baby, and now that she is born, I love writing even more things to her, knowing more of her personality and the joy she has brought to our home. As someone else stated, the lead-ins really get you thinking, and help you relay more personal feelings than you might normally consider. The poems before each section are special and heart-warming, too.
I would recommend this book to any Christian mothers out there who want to make something special for their baby to cherish later in life.
