Christmas Party - Tips for Parents

With a baby or a lively toddler, Christmas becomes exciting and exciting in a whole new way. Even if Christmas is a celebration of love, it often ends in tears, outbursts of anger and exhaustion.

Here are some tips for you to create the best conditions for peaceful holidays.

Take care of your baby

Each of your guests wants to hug and hold your baby, put something sweet in his mouth and play it with the toy that he or she has lovingly chosen. That can mean stress for your little one! Therefore, if you point your guests to a few points right from the start, the party will be more enjoyable for everyone:

  • Every baby will start to feel strange. Mostly between the sixth and eighteenth month of life. At some point, however, people will approach others again, smile at them and let themselves be lifted up. But maybe not right now and certainly not at a party with many people. Your baby can start crying or screaming as soon as someone enters the room, who is not dad or mom. This, of course, is a disappointment for grandparents, relatives or friends and stress for you if you have not previously initiated your guests. Explain to them that this is a phase that has nothing to do with the persons present. Sit with your baby on the arm next to their guests and chat with them. The baby stays calm and perhaps even smiles at the other person when she feels safe on Mum's lap.
  • Keep an eye on your child's usual daily rhythm, if possible. Your baby can not understand and classify the hustle and bustle around Christmas. It wants to eat when it is hungry and sleep when it gets tired. As always. If you do not stick to it, your child may be in a bad mood. Plan entertainment for your guests, regardless of the presence of your baby. There is plenty to do on Christmas day - preparing food, setting a table or handing out gifts. In this way, your child can sleep undisturbed or take his meals.
  • If you do not celebrate Christmas at home and travel, create a travel list. So you can be sure that you have everything you need. Make sure that your child is well strapped in his child seat, you carry sufficient diapers and fresh clothes to change. Also, take breaks if the trip takes longer.
  • Before leaving, remember to leave room for gifts in the car.

How to Prevent Your Child's Rage from Feasting

Older babies and toddlers may be over the top with the excitement and stress of Christmas, as well as their parents.Here are a few first aid measures when disaster announces:

  • Play with your child. It loves nothing more than your full attention, especially on occasions like Christmas. Sit on the floor with your child and let others do the work. If it is too loud or crowded, find a quiet place to devote to your child.
  • You may want to go to the park for your kid to let off steam for a while. If the weather is uncomfortable, it should be able to let off steam in a room for half an hour before bedtime approaches.
  • Stay as relaxed as possible! Do not necessarily insist on the usual rules at Christmas. Who cares if they walk around in pajamas until noon, your child nibbles on the Christmas tree and you're not done with all the preparations yet? Relax, so you and your loved ones can enjoy Christmas better!
