Start Your Own Baby Pool

  

Expand the joy of expecting a child with friends and family from around the globe.

What does a bebepool.com account look like ...

See example account sites:

1. Pool "In Progress" (form to submit guesses shown)
2. "Completed" Pool (winner calculated, all participants ranked)
3. Pool using all media options: Primary Photo Upload, and FriendFeed (Photos, blog posts, Facebook, Twitter and other content embedded into your pool. This example also shows only birth date, gender, first name & middle name components in use.)

 
Pool Components:

date of birth     time of birth    weight    length    
hair    eyes    first name    middle name

New!You decide which components to include in your pool. For instance, if the name and gender is already established, you can remove those elements so participants only guess on date/time, weight, length, tint of hair and tint of eyes.

Or, let's say you just want everyone to guess the date and give you name ideas – you can just select date, first & middle name.


 
Your participants can also leave you congratulations/comments with their guess—printing out your pool at the end makes for a creative edition for a baby album or scrapbook.

Once the big day comes, the actual results can be entered in and bebepool.com crunches all the numbers for you to determine each participant's ranking (who will achieve ultimate bragging rights with the #1 ranking?–it's anyone's game).
