Top Tips for your baby's First Christmas
Try and keep your daily routine for baby.
Try including your baby in the sit down dinner. If this is not possible, make sure to sit your baby in a high chair beside you so they can interact with everyone.
Despite your best efforts, your baby may find the noise and attention overwhelming. Don’t be afraid to take your baby to a quite room to calm them down. It is also important that there is a quiet place to sleep during the day should they need a nap.
