Frustrated by the limiting nature of most traditional baby books, Calgary moms Erin Burns and Karla Takasaki founded Stash + Story and developed a solution to better bundle the big milestones of early childhood. Their three-ring binder book comes with a specialized box to keep everything safe and sound. The books are pre-packed with 96 pages of prompts for documenting growth up to age 10. There is also room to add to the portfolio and two folders to protect odd-shaped pages like report cards. Stash + Story also offers additional specialized page bundles, including a bundle of firsts for things like first Christmas and first vacation, and a sacraments bundle for events like baptism and First Communion. Stash + Story also developed a special NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) bundle for documenting NICU procedures and stories and donated 300 of them to families in NICU in 2018. Stash + Story baby books cost $89 and are available with blush-, grey- and navy-accented pages.
