The Human Infant Project is a book that helps more science-minded parents record their children’s first big accomplishments
Baby books are a genre that has more or less stayed the same for the last few decades: books covered in pastel blue or pink asking you to detail your baby’s first words and steps. But for those who are a little more science-minded, these books can prove to be a little inaccurate and oversimplified. For these parents, there’s a new baby book that can sate their experimental nature while still making memories with their newborns.
The Human Infant Project is a baby book designed by self-described “Nerdy Baby Lady” Tiffany Ard has created a special collective keepsake to help document in specific and scientific detail. The book allows you report on the Research Team (the parents), list the methodology (how the baby made joined the family), and the raw data that includes hair, height and weight charts and spaces to list when certain physics experiments are completed, like sitting up and first steps.
Ard elaborates on why she chose to create a scientifically-themed baby book, besides the fact it is a unique way to chronicle your child’s milestones:
Science is all about seeking answers to life’s big questions. Babies raise a million questions just by existing: Do you have a name picked out? Boy or girl? Where did those gorgeous eyes come from? Is he sleeping through the night? How much did she weigh? Is he walking/talking/solving for X yet?
Besides, raising a child is truly one big experiment. It’s okay to feel like you’re using trial and error to get your baby to go to sleep. So is everyone else.
At the time of writing, the Human Infant Project Kickstarter has already reached its goal of $11,011. But with only hours left in the campaign, there’s only a short window of time to get your own copy of this one of a kind baby book that will be a cherished keepsake for you and your little scientist.
