Little Routines, Gillian Stewart

It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year!

My Christmas tips for having a wonderful time, and still keeping your little ones on track to avoid the January blues.

Celebrate this magical time - Christmas is for children so keep calm and keep your sense of humour at all times!

Have fun playing with your children and sharing in their wonder.

Routine can be difficult to manage, so adding a little flexibility will certainly make it easier.

Include your little one in the preparations and build up to Christmas day. It can be such fun and Christmas only comes once a year!

Sleep is important. To avoid overtired children, keep nap and bedtimes on track even if it means a walk around the block to get the nap in!

Turkey and trimmings can be enjoyed by everyone - just blitz the Christmas meal for babies.

Memories are precious, so remember to take a few photos.

Air the children! Head out for a walk to help with the excitement and energy levels.

Surprises, snuggles and special times.

Happy Christmas!
