Mark all those important milestones with a new baby with this Mama and Baby Milestone Card Pack.
The pack includes all the usual baby milestones, but also has extras for mum to celebrate all their milestones too! Here’s a list of some of the milestones that are in the pack;
- all ages from 1week to 1year (eg. today I am 2 weeks old)
- today I made my grownup pray extra hard
- today I did a poo in the bath
- today I rolled over for the first time
- today I burped/farted during the prayers at church
- last night I slept all the way through the night
- kept my parents up all night
And here’s a selection of the Mama Milestone cards!
- today I brought my baby home
- today I didn’t cry once
- today I finished praying without falling asleep
- today sat down without wincing
- today I read my bible
- today I got pooed on
There are many more, 58 designs in total, printed double-sided onto thick card. The cards have rounded corners to ensure they don’t jab you or your baby as you struggle to get that perfect photo, and are gloss laminated so are super easy to wipe clean. In total there are 29, A6-sized cards, each with a design on the front and back. They will arrive in a kraft box to keep them safe. Please note the cards used in the photos are samples and have not been laminated or printed on the thick card that the final product will be printed on, hence why they look a little dogeared - they were well-loved and admired by little hands and mouths during photography!
With this pack of cards, you get to celebrate the little wins as a mama, as well as accept the little failures along the way too. Hopefully these cards will make you smile, and as most of them have an accompanying Bible verse, I hope they will point you back to Jesus and encourage you with words of light and life.
I also hope that they will normalise those things that can seem a big deal at the time, but are actually just part of being a mum. Like being pooed on, for instance. It is definitely, absolutely, horrifically gross, and maybe even something to cry about! But it’s also just something you have to accept will happen at some point 😂
Also included in the pack are cards related to prayer, going to church, and reading the Bible. Those moments when you get to sit and read some Bible while you have a baby around, are meant to be celebrated. Quiet times might not look the same any more, but reading His word is reading His word, however you manage it, and however much you manage to read, whether it’s one sentence, a whole chapter or Psalm, or just 'be still'.
We have a set of both the baby & mama milestone cards and the Bible alphabet flashcards. They are absolutely beautifully designed and we love them!
I’m so looking forward to my friends having their first baby so I can give them these cards. There are the usual milestones and also some fun but significant ones in there too which will hopefully make the whole experience a little less overwhelming as they know these things are normal. Crying? Normal. Getting covered in all kinds of bodily fluids? Normal. Farting during church? Normal.
