HOW IT WORKS

milestone memory system

Our free email reminder system is designed with the busy parent in mind. Once we have your child's birth date/due date we will start sending you timely emails (twice a month) that coincide with your child's development. Our emails are brief, to the point and contain a link directly to your child's story. Just click the link and add your thoughts. See Samples for a few examples of Milestone Memory emails.

"remind me again" snooze button

Flexibility is key when you are a parent; so, we designed our Milestone Memory System with a snooze button. We know that timing is everything and each child develops differently. If you get an email and don't have time or your child hasn't reached that particular milestone just click the snooze button and we will remind you again in a week.

template pages

For those users who prefer to answer our questions, we have created template pages with graphics and typical questions. Even though we ask several questions, you can skip a question or leave it blank, and it won't appear in your story. This makes My Own Little Story unique to each and every family and child.

create custom pages

For those users who want to capture a special moment not included in our basic milestones, we offer a custom page feature. Add a page of text, pictures or both! You can add as many custom pages as you like.

upload photos

We know that a picture is worth a thousand words--so we have made it easy for you to upload photos to accompany the milestones you record.

share your child's story

Whether your friends and family are near or far, it is easy to keep them up-to-date with My Own Little Story. With the click of a button, you can enable your family and friends to read the latest updates of your child's story.

original hand-painted graphics

Our illustrator, Devon Galusha, created original watercolor images for My Own Little Story. The overall look of the book is simple and timeless--made to enjoy for generations to come. See Samples to view a few of our hand-painted graphics.

print a hard copy

Optional. Once you have at least 10 printable pages, you can order a printed hard cover, professionally-bound story. See Pricing for more details.

Multiple Reminders Are Bundled Together

No clogged inboxes! If there is more than one reminder scheduled to go out to you on the same day, we'll combine them into a single email so you can review them all at once in one convenient list.

100% Optional

You're in control. Whenever you create a story you make the choice to receive our Memory Milestone reminder emails. In addition, your preferences are managed from story to story, so you can decide to be reminded for one story, all of your stories, or none at all!

Share Your Baby's Milestones

For friends and family you share your baby's story with, you can also choose to allow them to receive Memory Milestone reminders for your story! Once you allow it, they then have the option to get the same email reminders for your baby's upcoming milestones so they'll be kept up-to-date with your baby's development.
