Having a new baby in the family is always a joyous experience, especially around the holidays and your baby first Christmas is an experience you will remember the rest of your life.

Use the 5 tips below to help make sure both you and your baby will enjoy this first Christmas together.
Tip #1 – Don’t Over Do It
Over course everyone wants to experience your baby first Christmas. Either way you end up with a Christmas that’s exhausting to both you and the baby. Then relax and enjoy an intimate Family Christmas with the new baby.
Tip #2 – Keep A Soothing Toys / Blanky Around
Of course everyone wants to hold the new baby and as long as baby is fine with it go for it. Stay close by though in case your baby needs Mom’s touch to calm down and comfort her.

Limit the toys you let baby play with and be sure your relatives spend some time just calmly and quietly holding the baby.
Tip #4 – Give Baby A Break
Since we’re on the topic… to avoid over stimulating your infant, be sure to give her plenty of breaks throughout the day.
