At whatsinmybelly.com we have one goal: make great tools for expecting parents. When I started this website I wanted to make it as easy as possible to setup and run a baby pool. I think most people will want to use our website over the traditional baby pool organized with good ol’ pen and paper. But in a world with 6.8 billion people, there has to be a few people out there who want to run a baby pool the old fashioned way. And according to Google there are about 1,600 searches for “baby pool template” every month. So, for those of you who prefer to print and write, here is our first printable baby pool template in PDF format.
I created this baby pool template using Adobe InDesign, and I’m making the PDF available as a free download:
Now, there are many ways to run a betting pool of any type, and baby pools are no different. This particular template is set up to use a similar model as our baby pool website. It’s point-based: each of the baby’s stats (gender, birthday, time, weight, etc) earns points, so the closer your guess on each stat, the more points you earn. The person with the most points wins. Other people prefer a date/time grid and I’ll create a template for that style soon.
