You may be wondering - 'what are baby milestone cards?'. These fun cards feature baby milestones, and when your little one reaches a milestone, you take photos of them with the matching card! After they've completed all of the milestones, it's a perfect way to look back at those special memories.

Here are some tips for using baby milestone cards:

Choose a Fun Design

Firstly, you will need a design to suit your baby! Here at Dotty about Paper, we have a wide range of designs available, including traditional boys and girls designs, adventure-themed designs, and jungle styles.

Lighting

Our next tip is to make sure you have good lighting in your photos. You want to make sure the cards are as easy to read as possible, so make sure you're in a light setting.

Keeping the lighting the same in all of your photos will keep them looking consistent and cute!

Be Creative

Put some cool props into your photos to make them unique. You can choose anything that you like to make your photos more fun.

Camera Angle

Make sure that you are also using a camera angle which makes it very easy to see everything in the picture. We recommend to lie your baby down next to the card, as this means you will easily be able to see everything in your shot. Your baby will also be relaxed, giving you more time to take your perfect photo.

Top tip - Use toys as a distraction for your little one so that they look at the camera!

Share

Once you've got your photos, it's time to share them.

Most people share their photos on social media. They will be so adorable that you're sure to get lots of interaction.

If you don't do social media, then you could decide to print off your photos instead, and share them with friends and family that way. We also love the idea of creating a personalised photo book with all of the milestones inside.
