Our NICU Journey is the bestselling NICU journal created by NICU nurse Trish Ringley, with over 10,000 sold and cherished throughout the world.
Bought it for a friend who's baby we knew was going to be in the NICU. She didn't want any gifts because of the unknown prognosis and hospital duration that awaited her but got this in love and omg!! What an awesome tool this has been. Though the duration in hospital has been longer than expected, she's now asking for another book! To continue the journey. It's made things easier, helping to organize her thoughts, questions and memories. Thank you guys !!
This journal is amazing and freaking adorable! I wish I would have found it sooner. I love filling out the different sections each day! It is nice to be able to refer back to previous information, especially being sleep-deprived from pumping and traveling to the NICU. Thank you ETT!
I love this journal. It has been wonderful to keep up with our little boy’s NICU journey.
Thank you so much for your feedback. We are happy that it is helping you during this tough time.
Perfect for parents of a new baby in the NICU. It brings some organization and order to a stressful and scary time. Great, so you don't forget anything when you get a ton of new/changing information.
Quick delivery: I had standard shipping. Bought journal, shipped next day and arrived 4 days later (went across the USA (CA to MA)).
My son was born two months premature due to a severe case of preeclampsia. This journal made it easy for me to document all of his important moments and ups and downs while we've endured the last month in the NICU. The inspiring quotes inside the journal are very cute and encouraging. I'd recommend this journal to any NICU mommy or daddy!
We ordered 20 of these journals and donated them to the NICU in memory of our son. They are a great item for families looking at long stays in the hospital.
Thanks for sharing your review, Virginia. What a beautiful & meaningful donation in memory of your son!
This Journal is a wonderful way for our families to capture their NICU journey. I like to give our parents of our smallest preemies this on admission.
Bulk Order - Our NICU Journey
After being blind-sighted by my daughters preterm birth at 28 weeks, a friend gifted me the Every Tiny Thing NICU Journal. This journal helped me feel educated and empowered in an otherwise overwhelming and unfamiliar environment. When I started Penelope Project, I knew I had to get these journals in the hands of as many NICU families as I could! Once parents receive this journal, they finally feel like they can advocate for their preemies. They have a guide on what to track, and questions to ask, taking one small thing off their crowded plate. Our Nurses love handing each new family their journal. They know that the layout lends itself to every parent becoming a NICU expert. Every Tiny thing has been amazing to work with. They make bulk ordering for our NICU Parent Packs a breeze!

Our experience is that NICU families love and appreciate these books. My wife, Patti is an SLP and works with people in the NICU and she is always telling me stories about the people getting the books. There was even one dad who just sat there hugging his book when he couldn't hug his child.
The best thing about these books is that they are like normal baby books but also have all of the extra stuff that parents need to keep track of for a NICU baby. As a former NICU dad (whose 32-week premie baby just graduated college) I can attest to the weird lost feeling that can creep over you as you navigate the sometimes rapidly changing conditions.
I think the cost is very reasonable. I mean we've been ordering and reordering these books for our NICU for years now.
The one thing we had an issue with regarding the nurses and other staff is we just want people to have them but they were being more selective for a while and only giving them to the long-term people. We finally compromised by saying that if anyone else who hadn't received a book asked about them or expressed an interest they could have one no matter what.
The staff seems to be very appreciative of the donation and also seems to enjoy giving them out.
It feels great to drop them off. I try to bring our youngest son along (now 11) and he gets a kick out of it too. He really appreciates the cards we have ordered for each book with his mommie's name on them.
In conclusion, the ordering process is always easy. There was only one time when we needed to buy the soft cover version because the hardcovers were out of stock but people didn't notice. Delivery is fast and the boxes are divided up so they are nice and light so Patti can carry them into the NICU sometimes.
Love the books!
I was supposed to received this order in 3 days and it has been ten and i am still waiting
The gift box is filled with thoughtful items to help parents through a stressful time. The journal is helping my daughter during this time. The milestones card remind her to document the important moments.
Thank you for your feedback. We are so happy this is helping your daughter through this difficult time.
