Bringing home your brand-new bundle is one of the most joyful things you’ll ever do in your home. To prepare, you’ve got to make sure your space is ready for this all-consuming new addition, now and when she grows into an energetic toddler and beyond. Your space should be safe, comfortable and hospitable to sleep from the minute new baby comes home.
Children and adults alike are getting tired of this pandemic. But here we, are heading into yet another lockdown in the UK.
Kids were quite enthusiastic about washing hands and social distancing when COVID-19 was a novelty back in the spring. But now, that enthusiasm has long since gone. And who can blame them? Nobody likes being told to clean and wash up all the time.
As parents, we have to do all we can to fight off that pandemic fatigue so we can keep our homes and kids safe. No matter how tiring lockdowns and social distancing may be, they are better than getting sick!
We’ve got some fresh new ideas to make it a little easier to keep your home clean and a little more fun to protect your kids from germs.
This Christmas is looking pretty different to our normal Christmases and with all of the changes and restrictions coming in recently, it has left lots of families in a bit of a panic. With all “non essential” shops closed in Tier 4 areas, including in London where we live, and a ban on travelling to meet with relatives, suddenly the Christmas present situation has become a little bit tricky. Some of my friends had already sent the kids toys directly to Grandparents houses ready to be wrapped up there, expecting to be spending Christmas together. With the new system in place, they are having to spend Christmas apart and on top of that, the Christmas presents are stranded! All of this extra stress certainly doesn’t help with that Christmas magic feeling we all long for at this time of year.

Christmas should be an exciting and magical time for young children. As adults, even we can get wrapped up in all the excitement. However, for some children, all the lights, changes to routine, and magic can be overwhelming. On top of this, they find out that a complete stranger is going to break into their house on Christmas Eve by coming down the chimney. Even worse, this complete stranger has been watching them and judging their behaviour all year. Sounds pretty scary when it’s put like that, doesn’t it? So, for some children, Santaphobia is a real thing.
Dreams Beds have put together some advice on how to deal with Santaphobia. Here’s a basic overview of what they say:
