Most parents remember their baby’s first smile, first step and more. However, new parents commonly want to know when they can watch out for the baby’s first moments so that they can have a camera at the ready. Read on for the five most important baby milestones that you should document for sure.

5 Baby’s First Moments Parents Must Document

1. The Baby’s Birth

The arrival of your baby will be one of the most important days of your life. Plus, your baby’s first year is extremely special. The emotions, tiredness and an overwhelming amount of love, all come together in that one day that you’ll want to remember forever. 

As your baby gets older, he/she will become curious to learn about their birth. So when you’re ready to share, you’ll want to remember every moment and what’s better than those recorded memories?

Ensure that you record every moment of your baby’s first day at home. As your baby gets older, he/she will become curious to learn about their first few days with you.

Taking lots of photos and videos to document these moments helps to create a meaningful storytelling experience when the right time comes.  ‍

3. First Meetings With Loved Ones

When you introduce your baby to your friends and family for the first time, you’ll realise how special these initial moments are for everyone. Hence it’s important to record these precious moments.

4. Your Baby’s First Words

The moment every new parent waits for is their baby’s first words. It is one of the most important developmental milestones for parents. Your baby’s first words might start as a mix of babbling and cooing and then suddenly you hear their first words. You’ll want to remember that feeling of those cute words forever.
