Baby Monthly Signs
WHAT IS A BABY MONTHLY SIGN?
Baby Monthly Signs are signs that celebrate your newborn’s monthly milestones by highlighting all their adorable traits and tiny accomplishments.
Monthly signs are usually designed on chalkboard — so they can be reused and updated for each monthly celebration — and are at least 2′ feet in diagonal width so they can be a prominent statement piece at your party or photoshoot.
Just like First Birthday Signs, these signs are super colorful, come in many themes, and can be saved in your nursery once the party is over.

- Loves — bath time, cheerios, naps, puppies, mornings, pacifiers, cuddles…
- Hates — noises, diapers, bright lights, big hairy dogs, hunger…
TIP: Put your kiddo’s month age in the heading along with their name. For example, “Christopher is 3 months!”.
How big should my Baby Monthly Sign be?
Your birthday sign should be at least 24″ inches (2′ feet) diagonal width.
Because you want your newborn’s sign to be a statement piece and be the highlight of the event (and you’ll want to be able to squeeze in all those fun milestone details). 🥰
Where should I put my First Birthday Sign?
You want to put your first birthday sign front and center, right when guests arrive, so they see it straight away.
That way, your guests will compliment it, read it, and use it as an ice-breaker when they run into strangers. 😉
Here are some in-room placement options:
- Lean it against the wall.
- Stand it on a table.
- Place it in an A-Frame.
- Hang it in the doorway entrance.
What do I do with my sign after the celebration?
Hang your sign in their nursery! 👼
And once they grow a little older, save it in their “memory” or keepsake box.
