Baby Advent Calendar Australia
One category of advent calendars that there is a distinct lack of in the market currently is baby advent calendars. Although babies admittedly might not full appreciate an advent calendar it would be nice for them to enjoy one as well when every other member of the family has their own advent calendar.
My best recommendation would be to make your own advent calendar for baby. My suggestions for what to put in a baby advent calendar include wrapping baby friendly items such as a new sippy cup, onesie, stuffed toy, Baby’s first Christmas ornament, fabric books, socks and baby toys.
