Make a Snowman
If snow is forecast in your area, make a snowman with your baby. Wrap an old scarf around its neck, add a carrot for a nose, some buttons and branches for arms. An old hat lying around is a nice final touch. Let your baby feel the snow and learn the sensation of cold. It will also make a cute photo opportunity, too.
Don’t Forget Santa and His Elves
Visit Santa in his grotto at your local mall one afternoon. You’ll get a magical photo and introduce your baby to a special Christmas tradition at the same time. Your baby might be frightened at first, so reassure him/her by holding them on your knee.
There’s nothing quite like Christmas dinner. Turkey with all the trimmings, lots of potatoes and carrots, deserts…Don’t forget to include your baby at the table and puree some turkey meat and vegetables to ensure they feel included in this tasty tradition.
If you’re visiting family, make a list of everything you might need and plan accordingly. Pack plenty of diapers, wipes, food, toys and clothes. Keep powdered milk handy if flying and ask the airline crew for hot water if your baby needs a bottle. If you need a plane-cot, book ahead as they can be heavily in demand.
Enjoy the presents your family buys for your baby. Share the enjoyment he/she will have with them. If friends and relatives are unsure what to buy, recommend toys suitable for their age and ask for something simple. The flashy toys in adverts might not necessarily be best for your baby.
