The baby will finally be coming home for the first time, and you want to make this occasion memorable. Besides, you want to share and express your joy with your loved ones. There are many adorable ideas to make the day special and express your happiness when welcoming the newborn home. They include;
Throwing a Party
The joy of bringing life to this world is so great that you don’t want to keep it to yourself. One of the ways to share your happiness with the world is by throwing a party to welcome your newborn home. With the right resources, you can organise a grand, stylish bash filled with music, food, and drinks that everyone will keep talking about long into the future.
However, a small invite-only or family party will do if you have limited resources. Besides, all the noise, music, and stampede accompanying a big party may make the newborn uncomfortable.
A newborn is nothing less than fragile and you should handle them with ultimate care, especially during the night when you are asleep. Avoid using heavy and bulky bedding such as blankets and pillows when making the baby’s crib to avoid the risk of SIDS. The best way to insulate and keep your baby warm during sleep is to swaddle them.
Swaddles are currently a hot trend on social media, and you can make yours too. Put your creativity to good use by making something colourful and attractive for your baby.
Watch some YouTube videos for tutorials on how to do it if you run out of ideas. Your newborn may not remember your efforts, but they will be comfortable and happy.
A Custom Cake
Getting a customised birthday cake is one of the most effective yet simple ways of welcoming the newborn home and celebrating the belated birthday because you may be bringing the infant home after some days.
Bakers offer a myriad of customised options, and you can get a cake with a personalised message or other decorations that best fits your feelings on this memorable day.
Document the Journey
You cannot thank your parents enough for those cute photos they took when you were so tiny and cute. They bring nostalgia, and you can do the same for your baby by starting that journey now. Get someone to snap those moments as you arrive home with the latest addition to your family.
Better still, you can enlist the services of someone with experience in family photography for quality photos. Pictures are a cheap way to relive the happy past.
Plant a Tree
Tree planting is an excellent way to make sure that the merry doesn’t fade with the coming night but that the sweet memories grow together with the baby. If you are a first-time parent, that tree will always remind you of the day the universe bestowed the unparalleled privilege of being called a parent for the first time.
There are many types of trees depending on their purpose, such as timber, shade, fruits, and beautiful blooms that decorate your household. Plant a tree that you think best represents the character of the newborn baby or what kind of person you think they will be once they grow up.
The day you bring your newborn baby home should be nothing short of colourful and merry. Therefore, make it count by throwing a party, planting a tree, customising a cake and swaddles, and clicking those moments.
