There's something we mommas should remember in these moments.
A baby's basic needs don't change just because it's Christmas.
In fact, he will probably be clingier and needier than usual. There are more people than usual, and every one of them wants to hold the little cutie. Loud noises, new smells, so much activity. That can all get pretty overwhelming for a lot of adults, so how much more stressed out are our littles? The need for extra cuddles, comfort, and rest will be there along with usual hunger and wet diapers.
It's an honor to be the one person my baby needs to feel safe and comfortable. He grows so fast, and it won't always be like this. One day, he'll even find comfort in--gasp--another woman. So instead of surrendering to feelings of loneliness and like I'm missing out on the fun, I'm going to slow down--really slow down--with my kid. In his Christmas day, he needs rest. And I am his rest. So I'll hold him tight, tickles his toes, and soak up his milky smiles. Because while everyone else is carrying on with merry celebrations, we'll make quiet Christmas memories, just us. And these memories will mean the absolute world to me one day.
Merry Christmas, mommas! Enjoy your quiet Christmas moments.
