      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

Baby's 1st Christmas (or Hanukkah or...)

8 posts in this topic

It's baby's 1st holiday season! Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and/or the New Year, do you anticipate your new baby or GB will be included? Dressed up in holiday attire that says "Baby's 1st Christmas" (or Hanukkah, etc.)? Or just in their regular baby clothes? Traveling to see GPs and other relatives or just staying home w/ Mommy and Daddy? Or??

Our YDD is very stylish. I doubt she'll put the babies in any clothing that says "Baby's First" or traditional red green. We bought them lovely cotton sleep sacks in trendy patterns. She adored those, likely what they'll live in for a bit. Found hooded outdoor sleep sacks, faux down filled, perfect for cold days on the Mountain (we'll rock babies on the deck, watch others ski).

 

They'll be with the rest of us on Christmas Eve and Day and on into ski week until school starts back up. YDD is not a "just stay home" sorta girl. She frequently says her go go go life will not change one bit. We'll see. eta: she does well getting her gorgeous hair and makeup in order and nursing, she may be correct. ;)

Perhaps it would be a good idea to broaden this question this year...

Do you think it's good or even ok to travel w/ a new baby to visit GPs and other relatives during the holiday season? Or is it better for baby to be mostly at home w/ Mommy and Daddy? And are you into the idea of dressing babies up in special Xmas or Hanukkah outfits, etc? Or do you find it "silly," "Unnecessary" or just "too much extra trouble?"

Depends on how new 'new' is. Less than 6 wks, no way in Hades. Mom hasn't even fully recovered yet. Has baby had their immunizations? If not, answer again would be 'no' for me.

Cold/flu season can be deadly to infants. RSV is a serious concern. There is no gathering I can think of that would be worth risking an infant's health for.

A young baby doesn't benefit *at all* from attending holidays and gatherings. It's for everyone else's benefit, not the infant's. Less than 6 months old, I'd be staying the heck home.
