During this stage, your baby is starting to develop her senses and she will definitely be delighted by the sound and lights brought by the season. At six to 12 months old, her vision has already improved and she can already see the things that you do. Although she is still very young to completely understand the essence Christmas, it is still a good idea to start your own family traditions with your baby. This could be as simple as decorating of the Christmas tree with the help of the entire family.
It may take your baby some time to learn how to welcome visitors, but she will already learn that she is a separate person from you. By the time she reaches six months, she can already show signs of being anxious around a stranger, so do not force her to sit on Santa’s lap or to go with her grandpa or grandma willingly. Remember that you should give her time to get used to seeing other people around her.
Over the Christmas period, you may also forget that too many unfamiliar faces, sounds and sights can overstimulate your baby, so make sure to pay attention to her. Be sensitive to the signs, especially if she is already feeling sleepy or tired. Make sure to let your baby rest for a while to have enough energy to last the day.
