How to organize a newborn’s bridegrooms, what to give a baby, some rules for guests and superstitions
The custom of inviting relatives and friends to visit the newborn is quite old. Until the fortieth day, parents did not talk about the baby and did not allow strangers into the house. And after the expiration of this period, a celebration was arranged, and sometimes walked for several days. Today, such strict rules are not adhered to.
These are the most important questions that worry parents. Invite guests right away or wait for the notorious 40 days, or can you postpone the inspection for months 5-6? Can I invite friends and colleagues or just relatives?
When. Of course, do not arrange a holiday in the first months of life crumbs. Immunity in the newborn has not yet recovered, so at this time you need to reduce the circle of communication. In addition, the emotional state of the baby is important; he can be nervous and capricious at the appearance of even one new person, not to mention the large crowd of guests. Parents also need time: the mother to establish the process of breastfeeding and caring for the child, the father will get used to a new member of the family and a new daily routine. Given all this, it is better to wait a few months and only then to invite guests.
Whom should I call. Close relatives should see the newborn first. And it will be enough to invite grandparents. Invite your friends and girlfriends, colleagues and buddies to be put off for a while.
Number of Guests. Best if there are not too many. You can invite 3-6 people. Do not forget, the child is not used to the presence of strangers yet. Instead of fun, he can make a tantrum. Then the holiday will not succeed. And the overexcited kid will not be able to fall asleep in time.
Time. What is the best time to invite guests? It all depends on the mode of the newborn’s day. The child should be fed, so it is advisable to guess and invite guests immediately after feeding. Well, if you show the baby, then put him to sleep.
Security. Be sure to take care of the safety of the crumbs. Guests should be healthy, warn them about it in advance. Ventilate the child’s room, do a wet cleaning before the arrival of guests and after. Do not allow to kiss the baby, just look at it :).
How to organize a lookout? What to put on the table? How to decorate a house? A young mother during this period is difficult to organize grandiose events, so it’s better to arrange a modest dinner.
