10 Things to Do with Baby on Valentine’s Day

There’s a reason that you can find a “Baby’s First          ” onesie, bib, what have you, for every single holiday. We parents love to celebrate every milestone, even a first Valentine’s Day. Here are some ideas we’ve had for celebrating Valentine’s Day with your baby.

Dress the Part. I remember each holiday with my first baby as a fun opportunity to dress him up in something festive. For my son’s first Valentine’s Day, I layered some felt hearts and added them to his red sweatshirt. But if you don’t feel like getting crafty, there’s no shortage of heart-themed outfits for baby like this sleeper from Polarn O. Pyret.

Send a Hug. Paula, of Frog Prince Paperie, created these sweet paper “hugs” that are just right to send to grandparents or family members who don’t live nearby.

Have a Healthy Heart. While chocolate seems to be the mascot of choice for Valentine’s, Paula showed us that healthy treats can be just as fun.

Have Fun. While a paper Valentine might be lost on tiny tots, they will certainly enjoy getting their little hands (and mouths!) on a festive heart rattle like this one from HABA.

Decorate. These sweet stained glass window, tissue paper hearts make a lovely garland to hang from your windows. You can put this together in an hour with some basic supplies.

Wear Your Love for Your Baby. We love mom jewelry for many reasons, including the chance to spoil a new mom a little, but we also love it for the sentimental reminder of your little one every where you go. Mark your baby’s birthday on this delicate bracelet or represent your love “to the moon and back” with a darling moon necklace.
