6 Ways To Make Your Baby's First Holidays Memorable
Your newborn baby's first holiday season is an exciting time to be together as you share in the joys of the season in new ways. To make their first holiday season extra special, get inspired by the ideas below.
Start a New Tradition
Holiday traditions are more than just fun, they are a way for families to bond year after year. When your new baby comes along, it might be time to add in a tradition that they can eventually take part in. For example, you can start wearing matching pajamas on Christmas morning or bake cookies while watching holiday movies. While you bake, your little one can relax in the breeze® plus playard.
Make A Baby Handprint Ornament
A great memento that will make you think about your baby’s first Christmas every year going forward, a handprint ornament is easy to make and looks beautiful on the tree. You can make one from ingredients commonly found in the house, including baking soda, cornstarch, and ribbon. As your little one grows, they’ll love seeing their first tiny handprint as they put the ornament on the tree.
Read Holiday Stories To Your Baby
There are lots of amazing holiday tales to read to your baby, one for every night of the month if you’d like! While your baby rocks to sleep in the 4moms mamaRoo sleep® bassinet, you can treat them to The Night Before Christmas, How The Grinch Stole Christmas, or The Nutcracker. Make a tradition of reading the same stories every Christmas Eve as they grow up.
Baby Gift Ideas That They’ll Keep Forever
Clothes and toys are great, but this first holiday season is a good one to invest in a baby gift that they’ll keep forever. A sterling silver baby brush set or a keepsake box for their first tooth or lock of hair are perfect first holiday gifts. A piece of jewelry, like a necklace or bracelet, could also be a thoughtful heirloom they will hold onto throughout the years.
Do a Holiday Themed Photo Shoot
Your baby has their cute holiday outfit and now it’s time to show it off! Book a holiday photo shoot (with or without Santa), or prop your baby up in their mamaRoo®4 infant seat and you’ll cherish the results for years to come. You can send the baby photos out in your Christmas card to let everyone see how cute your little one is!
Take Your Baby to See A Light Show
Your baby will love the lights of the season! Whether you know of a local lights show or simply want to take a drive through the decorated neighborhoods, your baby will enjoy the magical lights strung along trees and houses.
Create unique traditions that your family can build on for years to come. Make the most of the holidays, for your little one and yourself!
