Some tips to make your baby's first Christmas extra special

  • Capture the special moment by taking loads of pictures and videos.
  • Dress your baby up if you like in something festive but comfortable. Use a red or green colored baby grow, t-shirt, sweater or dress.
  • Hosting a family Christmas dinner? Things can get a bit stressful if you do not have someone to hold or watch the baby for you while you get things ready so do not be afraid to ask for help from your family.
  • Babies like us have different personalities, some babies love to socialize and will enjoy being passed around at the party while some babies won't and a house filled with people can easily become too much for them and they may need to retreat every now and then to a quiet room with mommy.
  • And finally, why not create your own family Christmas traditions now that you have your own little family!
