Easter baskets are cool for older kids, but mostly ignored by babies. That said, as a mama, I know it's hard to resist creating a cute little basket for your baby. Following is what you should do to create a safe and fun Easter basket for your little one.
First read up on the basics of Easter safety for your baby - some tips about baskets are offered. SAFE BASKET TIPS:
- Use shredded paper instead of grass as a lining for the basket. OR go sans Easter grass; your baby won't notice.
- Make sure the basket you choose has smooth edges. Some rustic baskets are cute, but have sharp edges that can cut your baby's skin.
- If you tie a ribbon round the basket make sure it's on good and tight. Your baby will like to see a nice bright bow, but if it comes undone, it can pose the risk of getting wrapped around your baby's neck or your baby could choke if he tries to much the ribbon down. Knot the bow on tight and don't leave much overhang (end of ribbon).
