If you have a baby in your life, whether yours or someone else's, you know that you can never have enough frames to display all of the cute baby pictures. But with so many types of baby picture frames, sometimes it can be overwhelming trying to find just the perfect frame.

To help you decide what type of baby frame is best for you, here are the top seven most popular types of baby frames. They are intentionally not listed in any type of order so you can decide which one is your favorite baby picture frame.

1. First Year Baby Photo Frames are designed for just that - to capture a baby's first year of life. Usually designed to hold a wallet size picture for each month of a baby's first year, these baby photo frames are a cherished keepsake. If you have larger baby pictures to display, you can create your own first year baby photo frame by using a mat with openings cut to the size of your pictures.

2. Baby Sonogram Frames are a terrific way to display a sonogram and the first image of your baby. Sonograms are now commonplace and are an anticipated part of a couple's transition into parenthood. The excitement a couple feels when they first see the sonogram will resurface each time they look at the sonogram displayed in a baby sonogram frame. However, baby sonogram frames can be short lived. Once the baby is born, the sonogram frame is often replaced with a frame that can hold both the sonogram image and a baby photo.

3. Decorative Baby Picture Frames are the most common frames for displaying baby pictures. Baby picture frames are decorated with images of all types of things like baby rattles, teddy bears, bottles to name just a few. You can even find adorable baby frames in shapes like butterflies, barns, trucks and trains. Often these different shapes are handmade solid pewter picture frames and are often colorfully decorated with enamel. These type of baby picture frames come in a large selection of finishes, styles, colors and sizes and usually have easel back stands to display on a table.

4. Baby Hospital Bracelet Frames are a unique and clever way to display a hospital ID bracelet and is sure to be another cherished item of many parents. The baby bracelet frame has a small narrow space for the bracelet and a place to hold the baby's first picture.

5. Baby Footprint Frames are a popular way to remember how tiny your baby was at birth or to remember the adorable size of their hands or feet. With an ink print or mold of your baby's hand print or footprint you will remember those first precious days with a baby footprint frame. Baby footprint frames can either be hung on a wall or placed on a flat surface. Be aware that you'll need to have some patience when working with molds or ink prints because they can be messy and require more time to get a good mold or ink print.

6. Shadow Box Frames are a wonderful way to display your baby keepsakes, like a special spoon, the hospital bracelet, rattles, outfits, bibs or pictures. A shadow box frame will protect those precious baby items as well as be a great way to showcase those important items all in one place. Whether for yourself or to share with someone else, a baby shadow box frame is a safe and secure place to display those special baby keepsakes

7. Engraved Keepsake Frames make a beautiful baby gift or the perfect choice for a favorite baby picture of your own. They are usually made out of precious metals, like sterling silver, silver plate and pewter and allow you to memorialize the happy event by engraving your baby's name, birth date, weight and length. Although the baby's name, birthdate, weight and length are the most common items to engrave, you can choose to have almost anything engraved as long as it will fit on the frame. With an engraved baby keepsake frame, it becomes a family heirloom that is passed down from generation to generation.

Now that you know the most popular baby frames, you can feel confident in selecting the perfect baby frame to showcase your little pride and joy.
