Wrap it up! Baby’s first Holiday celebration with #PCOrganics

ChristmasPic
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.

The PC® Organics Baby team has 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.

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.

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. 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. 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.

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.

    Tick Tock

  12. Debbie S. | 10th Dec 15

    Deck The Halls- Yes we must watch what is potentially dangerous to young ones. If receiving something like a poinsettia make sure it is placed out of reach.

  13. Caroline M. | 11th Dec 15

    My favourite tip is in Deck the Halls : skip the tinsel, as we have a 6 month old baby, and it’s a good reminder as we don’t want any chocking hazards.

  61. Krista M | 27th Dec 15

    An important tip is the Deck the Halls tip, where we all cannot be too cautious with our Christmas decor! We may not be as aware of the risks as these items are only displayed once a year & packed away the rest of the time. So many dangerous choking hazards & safety is first and foremost for a happy, healthy holiday season.

    My favourite tip was the Mealtimes Matter.

  63. Elizabeth Vlug | 28th Dec 15
