Jingle bells, deck the halls, oh rest ye merry baby… yes it’s Christmas season! The sparkling lights are up around town, the shops are full with Christmas themed temptations, and for you, well it’s one of the most special Christmases ever because it is your baby’s first Christmas. Squeeeeeee!
Hold in the brimming joy, the bundling nerves, put a lid on the regular glitter and tinsel and take stock because having a baby at Christmas is a whole new ball game. Loud noises and lots of loud Christmas cheer? Mmnn, you could try to tone it down a bit so you don’t have a terrified wailing little one in your arms all day.
Expensive baby Christmas gifts and extravagant baby toys for christmas? Honestly, your baby will be more interested in the crinkly wrapping and packaging and being zoomed around in the cardboard boxes than the actual gifts at this point. Save your money because kids get really expensive later on!
But there are lots of baby's first Christmas ideas that you can try to make your baby’s first Christmas really special and memorable for you and your loved one.
We had a little brainstorming session here at the Organic Baby Food Shop, thinking back on our baby’s first Christmas and what worked well and what we cherish, and what really bombed out with epic proportions.
So our best advice for baby’s first Christmas is think about what is special to you? What will help make your day relaxed, peaceful and special. Don’t try to make everyone happy. And don’t try to do everything (like hosting Christmas lunch for the whole family at your house). Take it easy on yourself and your baby will benefit.

At what age do babies stop drinking formula? Well, they don't have to stop at 12 months old, especially if they are a fussy eater and they’re not getting enough iron and nutrients from their diet.
