Christmas is such a special time. It’s even more special if it’s your first Christmas with your new baby, or even if it’s your first Christmas as an expectant Mum (make sure you’ve packed your hospital bag!)
I have always loved Christmas, as a child those magical moments I felt at Christmas will stay with me forever. From the twinkling red lights I’m sure I saw in the stars on Christmas Eve, to the first taste of delicious Christmas cake or the smell of the fresh pine Christmas tree.
That’s why I now love to make Christmas special for my children. Christmas is a great time to start new traditions as a family and a favorite in our house is ‘Christmas tree night’. We have delicious Butlers chocolates, Christmas music and the littlest lady puts the star on the Christmas tree , with a little help from Dad! She’s only 3!
A new book on Christmas Eve is a wonderful tradition and a great way to encourage the all important reading with your new baby. Check out our beautiful book “Welcome To The World”, available here. A Perfect present for Baby’s first Christmas.
As a new Mum or pregnant Mum to be it’s also important where you spend Christmas. Maybe you want to keep your new baby home where they are happy in their own environment or you as a Mum to be don’t fancy traveling anywhere. This is a time where you are allowed to be selfish so do just that! Take a relaxing bath with one of our New Baby body candles from Mummy Loves available at www.yummymum.ie. Light the candle and let the essential oils create a peaceful and harmonious atmosphere in your home. Then massage the warm infused shea butter into your skin giving you the ultimate treatment. If you do decide to invite your family round for Christmas dinner ensure they know to bring a contribution so your not left with the stress of cooking!
If you haven’t gotten round to packing your hospital bag yet and really don’t fancy adding those lists to the already extensive Christmas list then Yummymum.ie have the answer for you. Our pre packed hospital bag is the perfect Christmas treat to you and your new baby. Or indeed the perfect pregnancy gift for that special lady!
Whatever you do this Christmas enjoy every minute , relax and pamper if you are pregnant and make and record special memories with your new baby if it’s your first Christmas with your little one.
