Have you chosen a name for your baby?
Marking your baby’s name in or on something significant or special can help solidify to you the very real life of your baby, and that even if he or she didn’t get to touch the world with their fingers, he or she did get to leave their mark on the world in a positive, unique way.
It can be something simple, or something more elaborate.
Here are some ideas for marking your baby’s name:
- Stillbirthday Cakes
- Name in Sand
- Butterfly Beach
- Name on a brick at a children’s farmstead
- Name on the Sidewalk
- Name in Stone
- Writing on the Wall (Baby Boards by Misty)
- Jewel Made (Angel Signs)
- Name on Flower Petals
Telling your story, your baby’s story, can be very special and very healing:

- you can begin your own online journal right here at stillbirthday, where you can share ongoing updates of your grief journey. We call it, Still Parenting.
