Reply To: Christmas with baby
My baby’s first Christmas they were slightly younger. I loved it!
I plan activities in Nov and Dec and get out and about as much as we can. Christmas fairs, lights etc, just soaking up the atmosphere really. With baby I did the same but with a pram to carry the flask of warm hot chocolate! There’s so many events outside and in. Baby will love the lights and sparkle of it all!
I would keep up your normal routine of baby activity groups etc. If you haven’t started any do so now! Libraries run baby groups for free as do children’s centres if near you.
Though Christmas wouldn’t be this time for you, I’d say embrace it. Decorate earlier – not excessively if you don’t want to. Have little cute photo shoot sessions with baby at home! I adore my pictures still years later. Make keepsakes such as salt dough hand prints or painted prints.
Start some of your own traditions.
Its only really Christmas Day everything is closed, so you could if you don’t wish to celebrate on 25th have free run of wherever you want to go! Imagine your local park or a beach just for you two!
Youre not too late to book a trip away!
