Wrap it Up! Baby’s First Christmas with PC Organics Baby {Giveaway}

PCSANTA1

From trimming the tree to tasting treats, the holiday season is sure to surprise and delight your little ones, especially if it’s their first! But, while the holidays bring a wealth of wonderful firsts for baby, it can also cause disruption to their schedule, which can lead to stress for both you and your littles. For our last post with the The PC® Organics Baby team we are talking about everything you need to keep you covered this winter to help ensure the season goes smoothly for your family, so your little ones stay happy, safe and sound.

Tick Tock
Try to keep your little one’s schedule as close to their regular routine as possible. Bring your little one to holiday gatherings, but for late evenings or overnights with the family it may be a good idea to bring bed- and bath-time items with you. If dinner goes into overtime, put your little one through their regular night-time routine and find a quiet place to put them to sleep until the party wraps up. This way, you can keep them on their regular routine and avoid undue upsets from being overtired. This worked great for us last year when Hazel was 1.5 years old. We put her to bed with the rest of the kids and just slipped her into the car in her pjs when we were ready to go. 

Candy Caution

The holidays include a variety of sweet treats in bright and enticing colours that are sure to attract your little one’s attention. Be sure to watch your baby or toddler around sweet treats to ensure they don’t consume anything that could be a choking or allergy hazard. I try and keep everything out of reach of the littles hands by leaving any appetizers and snacks on our kitchen island.

Special Snacks

Understandably, family and friends often want to feed little ones at a party, but many adult foods aren’t the best choice for your baby or toddler. Why not pack some colourful fruit or age-appropriate baby cookies for them to snack on? These options will make your baby feel included in the festivities while giving you piece of mind that they’re not eating anything they shouldn’t.

Mealtimes Matter

With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season it can be easy to forget to focus on family mealtimes and sit down to eat. These changes in schedule and food can sometimes cause tummy upsets for little ones. Try to keep your baby’s meal times as consistent with their regular routine as possible. Quite often we tend to feed the kids earlier than the adults eat. Dinner is usually running behind and this lets us sit and enjoy our meal while they run and play after their dinner. Offer them their favourite healthy options like President’s Choice® Organics Strained Butternut Squash or President’s Choice® Organics Vegetable and Rice Casserole with Chicken.

Deck the Halls

Trimming the tree? Be sure to take special care with your décor around the little ones. I’m sure like us most of you have trees that are decorated for the first 2 feet and most of the decorations are in clumps! I think we only put out about half of our decorations this year, leaving all the glass ones in the box. One day I will get to enjoy them again 🙂 We also skip the tinsel, which can cause a choking hazard, and be mindful of small toys and ornaments. Mistletoe, holly, poinsettias and other plants are commonly used as decorations during the season; however these plants are potentially poisonous and should be kept well out of reach.

PCSANTA10

Celebrate!

Remember that the holidays are most special to the little ones in your life, and everything you do is sure to bring them joy and happy memories for years to come. Include your baby in as many family holiday traditions as possible. From hanging stockings to the Santa Claus parade, be sure to find ways your baby can participate, even in a small way. Additionally, don’t forget to snap photos along the way to capture those precious moments.

    We have three new grandbabies this year. One born in March, one in August and one in November. We are so excited to celebrate all of their first Christmases with them. I think the oldest will be able to open his presents once we show him how to do it! He’s already enthralled with the Christmas Tree!

    Thanks!

    This year had very few firsts for us. The main one I can think of was that this was our first year without meltdowns! Our youngest is 3.5 years old so the holidays were pretty smooth! Our new baby will be here in 9 days though so next Christmas we’ll have an almost one year old!

    We had a few lovely firsts this year. We had our first Christmas not at our own house and it was a lot of fun. My son also saw snow for the first time on Christmas Eve.
