If this Christmas will be your baby's first Christmas, that's pretty exciting. Here are some ways to make it great for both your baby and you. Get a great holiday outfit: Aim for cute, but not overly fussy. People will likely be taking lots of holiday photos, so you want cute. However, a comfortable baby is worth it's weight in gold. Too many buttons, scratchy lace, or weird collars won't be fun for anyone. Also, although this baby above is super cheerful, I can tell you from experience, Christmas hats do not usually go over well. Power up your camera: Make sure your camera doesn't die right in the middle of your celebration. Your baby's first Christmas only happens once, be sure you get to capture it. Prep your thank you cards: Your baby will get lots of nice presents, so try this adorable idea for personalized baby thank you cards. Keep the day safe: Make sure all small bows, ribbons, gifts, and other dangerous holiday items are kept away from your baby. Your baby's first Christmas should not include a trip to the emergency room. Keep it peaceful: Christmas day should be relaxing. If you start feeling overwhelmed try these mama relaxation tips. Your baby can get stressed too; lots of activities and people can spark a fit, so limit any baby anxiety. Stick to a normal baby schedule: Your tot may be having fun, and you may be extra busy, but sticking to a normal feeding and nap schedule on Christmas will help keep your baby happy all day long. Is this your baby's first Christmas? How are you making it special?
